DLP 3D Printing
What is DLP 3D Printing?
Digital Light Processing or DLP 3D Printing has a place with the Vat Photopolymerization family. In DLP 3D Printing, a part is made by specifically relieving a thin surface of a polymer layer-by-layer utilizing a bright ultra-violet light source. The materials utilized in DLP 3D Printing are liquid photosensitive thermoset polymers.
DLP 3D Printing is used to make functional prototypes, models with intricate details, and parts with high complex geometries in as quick as 1 day. If you are in the need of extremely high precision or smooth surface then DLP 3D Printing is the most appropriate 3D printing innovation accessible.
DLP 3D Printing parts can be delivered in a wide range of materials from rigid and day to day use like ABS to flexible like rubber. We likewise offer various auxiliary services for example, painting, post processing, quality check to additionally upgrade the completion of your 3D printing plan.
How Digital Light Processing (DLP) 3D Printing work?
The DLP machine starts the 3D printing process by drawing the layers of the support structures, trailed by the part itself, with a bright laser pointed onto the outside of a thermoset resin. After a layer is imaged on the resin surface, the build plate moves down/up and a recoating bar moves over the stage to apply the following layer of resin. The procedure is rehashed layer by layer until the final part is achieved.
Completed 3D printed parts are removed from machine and taken for the next stage where solvents are utilized to expel any extra resin. At the point when the parts are totally spotless, the support structures are physically expelled. From that point, parts are kept in an Ultra-Violet curing station to completely harden the external surface of the part. The last step in the DLP 3D Printing procedure is the utilization of any custom or client determined post processing/surface finishing.
The resin is set through a procedure called photopolymerization: during hardening, the monomer carbon chains that make the fluid resin are enacted by the light of the Ultra-Violet laser and become strong, making solid tough bonds between one another. The photopolymerization procedure is irreversible and its absolutely impossible to change over the DLP parts back to their fluid structure: when an DLP part is heated, it will not come back to liquid form but it will burn.
Why Choose DLP 3D Printing for your project?
Are you done with your design phase and made few visual prototypes using FDM 3D printing or other prototyping methods? Great! Now its time for some real action. As DLP 3D printing produces parts with high precision, accuracy and intricate details it is best suited for functional testing i.e. mating parts, assemblies, dynamics load conditions, fit and tolerance test, etc.
