within the last months Alphaform AG has performed a lot of tests and now
finally is running a ceramic filled SLA resin on SLA 5000, SLA500, SLA350
and STEREOS systems up to 600x600x400mm build envelope. First results were
presented at Euromold in december and created a lot of interest in the
More than 1500 parts already have been build and pushed applications for
SLA parts into complete new directions.
This resin is the first composite-producing liquid resin for conventional
SLA technology. It is creating extremely stiff and strong parts with
highest heat deflection temperature(>250°C). Current applications include
lighting reflectors, pump housings, impellers, wind tunnel testing, beamer
housings and even direct molds for injection molding process. The resin is
giving you a tensile strength of >80MPa (11.500psi) and a flex. strength
higher than 120MPa (17.000psi).
Due to the filler content the shrinkage is extremly low , so precision is
best you can get in SLA technology, in addition the surface quality is
superior to conventional resins.
