Stereolithography, many times referred to as SLA, uses a laser to solidify a photopolymer resin building parts layer by layer. Stereolithography (SLA) is a great choice for complex prototype geometries because of the precision to which it builds and the ability to apply a multitude of finishes.
Stereolithography (SLA) is defined as Vat Polymerization and is one of the seven processes defined by ASTM F42. Met-L-Flo, Inc. uses our large capacity Stereolithography (SLA) systems, as well as our expertise in model finishing, to produce quality prototypes of your direct digital manufacturing designs in an accelerated timeframe. These patterns are excellent for Silicone molds and secondary tooling application such as Rubber Plaster Molding and investment casting.
