Design Prototyping Technologies Reserves Two SLA Machines for ABS-Like High-Impact Resin
SYRACUSE, N.Y.--Design Prototyping Technologies (now 3D Systems Corp.), a provider of rapid prototyping and low-volume manufacturing services, recently announced that it has dedicated two large format SLA machines to the use of DSM Somos® DMX-SLTM 100, an ABS-like, high-impact stereolithography resin. The company is reportedly the only service bureau in North America to do so. According to DPT President, Mike Rufo, the company's ability to build extremely durable prototypes with exceptional accuracy and detail resolution is especially intriguing to industrial designers and manufacturers. "The decision to reserve two systems solely for DMX ensures our ability to consistently deliver stereolithography parts with sintered-like durability," said Rufo in a statement from DPT.
Large format SL systems offer project managers and stereolithography technicians the advantage of running multiple parts in just one build cycle or processing large build styles without having to segment STL files. "With four times the impact strength of typical 'ABS-like' stereolithography resins, DMX is advancing stereolithography resins beyond traditional applications to those previously used for cast urethanes and laser sintering," stated Brian Bauman, global product manager for DSM Somos.
DSM Somos® introduced DMX-SLTM 100 to the rapid prototyping and manufacturing industry in 2007. In addition to DMX, Design Prototyping Technologies runs DSM 9120, DSM 11122XC, DSM 12120, and DSM 18420. The company's lab consists of nine large-format Stereolithography machines.
Design Prototyping Technologies offers product development, rapid prototyping, and manufacturing services. The Syracuse-based company has a 12,500-square-foot facility with climate controlled rooms, dedicated battery backups, and regularly scheduled calibration inspections to support nine large-format Stereolithography (SLA) machines. The company's RP capabilities include 3D printing, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), urethane casting, injection molding, metal casting and sheet metal services. Design Prototyping Technologies also offers an online quote engine that is said to guarantee an immediate response to time-sensitive product development projects.
