Axis increases its production capacity with the latest RAPLAS 700 SLA 3D printer (resin)

Stereolithography

The RAPLAS 700 uses the SLA additive manufacturing technology. The term SLA stands for StereoLithography Apparatus. It is the oldest method of modern additive manufacturing. It is this technology that gave the name to STL files for STereoLithography. The concept is based on the elaboration of a three-dimensional object by polymerization thanks to a UV laser. A photosensitive resin is polymerized layer by layer according to the movements of the UV laser, itself directed by the previously established model (3D file). The tray is lowered little by little so that the resin can cover the previous layer. Once the part is completely cured, the tray is raised and the part is recovered.

Production speed,cost reduction and quality improvement with the RAPLAS 700

The model 700 from the English manufacturer RAPLAS has seduced the Axis team on many points. First of all, its manufacturing and printing quality are at the level of the customers’ expectations in order to guarantee the industrial quality for their projects. Exemplary quality, especially with the white ABS resin of great precision.

Its tray then, of 700x700x500mm, allows to print large parts, easy to access thanks to the space provided for this purpose. This saves time and simplifies the cleaning of the parts after printing.

Finally, RAPLAS has chosen to offer an “open” resin system, which does not limit the use of the manufacturer’s resins and opens the possibility of using compatible resins. All of this is accompanied by Materialise Magics, the 3D file preparation/repair/conversion software.

The team is therefore ready to launch the RAPLAS 700 in order to offer impeccable printing quality at a very competitive price.
