SLA Prototypes

SLA Prototypes

Here at Met-L-Flo, Inc., we have been offering a variety of 3D printing and scanning services for over 25 years. Among the many methods of 3D printing we offer include Stereolithography (SLA). Stereolithography is a great choice for complex prototypes. SLA prototypes utilize intricate geometries due to the precision at which they are built and they have the ability to apply a multitude of finishes.

If you are in need of SLA prototypes or would like more information on Stereolithography, call the 3D printing and scanning experts at Met-L-Flo, Inc. today at 1-800-MET-L-FLO. You can also fill out the quick contact form on the right and one of our knowledgeable representatives will get back to you shortly.

Quality SLA Prototypes

SLA prototypes begin with a 3D image. The prototype is then built layer by layer from bottom to top in a tank of liquid polymer. When the laser strikes the polymer, it hardens. Cavities and overhangs are automatically generated while the model is being cut. Stereolithography is used in many industries including:

  • Automotive
  • Consumer appliance
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Medical devices
  • Electronic housings
  • And many more

Here at Met-L-Flo, Inc., we have the capacity to develop SLA prototypes around the clock in our manufacturing facility.

We are able to offer a variety of materials to accommodate the requirements for any program with precision and accuracy. We have the ability to produce quality and complex SLA prototypes of your Direct Digital Manufacturing designs quickly. Stereolithography prototypes are great for silicone molds and as a secondary tooling application such as investment casting and Rubber Plastic Molding.

Benefits of SLA Prototypes

There are multiple benefits of Stereolithography including:

  • Fast quote
  • Fast turnaround
  • Production Finishing with PMS matches
  • Multiple materials available
  • Material characteristics of thermoplastics

We also provide consulting services for product design, engineering, and inspection & metrology. If you have any questions about Stereolithography or would like more information on all of our 3D printing services, call us today at 1-800-MET-L-FLO. Or simply fill out the contact form on the right and we will respond shortly.
