One-of-a-kind SLA machine added to fleet
1 Minute Read
We’ve expanded our SLA additive manufacturing capacity to help UK manufacturers and engineers build bigger, better and stronger parts.
Thanks to securing its first round, six-figure investment earlier in the year, AME-3D, have expanded its fleet of machines by adding two new stereolithography (SLA) machines in addition to the new selective laser sintering (SLS) machine earlier in the year.
The RS Pro 800 is the only large frame SLA machine in Yorkshire, 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 ideal for a variety of industries and applications, such as large automotive rapid prototypes, film and TV props, and wind tunnel testing models.
The Pilot 450 is one of six machines currently operational in the UK and can create parts within 450 x 450 x 400mm dimensions and with layer thickness of 0.05-0.25mm. It is well-suited to build medical grade components, high-definition scale models, “form, fit & function” prototypes, and accurate casting masters.
Both new machines are more than capable of low and medium volume production and are set to lead the way of mass customisation for the UK’s additive manufacturing market, something which is impossible for traditional (subtractive) manufacturing methods to achieve.
