Redefining the UK's SLA market 

Demand for additive manufacturing services and in particular for specialist SLA additive manufacturing is on the rise.  To make sure none of our customers have to do without, we've   increased our SLA build volume by 8 times and added 2 brand new  machines to our offering. 

These two new stereolithography machines enable you to build bigger, better and stronger components than ever before.

RS Pro 800

The RS Pro 800 is the only one of its kind in the UK. It's a  large frame SLA machine, capable of building components with 800 x 800 x 550mm dimensions and a layer thickness from 0.07-0.25mm

This one-of-a-kind machine is fully operational and ready to build your components.

Whether that's:

  1. Low to medium part runs at a fantastically low cost per unit without the limitations of tooling
  2. Engineering prototypes to prove out concepts
  3. End use parts

With its excellent surface finish and sidewall quality, the RS Pro 800 is well-suited to meet demands of different applications:

  • Large automotive rapid prototypes
  • Form, fit and function prototypes
  • Wind tunnel testing models
  • Medical and healthcare devices
  • Film and TV props
  • And many more

This SLA machine is a first in the UK and uses   Somos EvoLVe 128, the  durable stereolithography material that produces robust, accurate, and high-detailed parts.

Pilot 450

There are only six  Pilot 450 machines currently operational in the UK with more expected over the next 12 months.  It is capable of    building between a layer thickness of 0.05-0.25mm and components up to 450 x 450 x 400mm in size.

The Pilot 450 is capable of fine detail builds  and is well-suited to meet precise demands of different applications:

  • Medical grade components
  • Super high definition scale models 
  • Accurate vacuum and RIM casting masters
  • Form, fit and function prototypes
  • Wind tunnel testing models
  • Many others

The materials running on this machine are Somos® Waterclear Ultra and Accura Xtreme Grey

The new SLA Printing Process 

Both machines  have a solid granite recoater frame giving them unrivalled thermal stability.

Our SLA fleet is not only bigger as in there are more machines for you to choose from, but also offers you new build opportunities which are currently hard to come by in the UK.

The accuracy and  detail of the Pilot 450 and the amazing robust single part pieces , which the RS Pro 800  is capable of, are set to redefine how UK manufacturers and product developers build components.
