UnionTech Pilot Series Stereolithography 3D Printers Offer Ease of Use

The series of stereolithography systems printers can produce capable of producing prototypes capable of withstanding a broad range of stresses.

UnionTech has launched its Pilot series stereolithography systems, designed for a range of applications and ease of use. The 3D printers support a range of materials and build preparation software.

Two 3D printers are available in the Pilot series. The Pilot 250 features a 250 × 250 × 250-mm build platform, while the Pilot 450 offers 450 × 450 × 450 mm. Typical features include scan speeds up to 12 m/se., layer thicknesses as thin as 0.05 mm and accuracy of ±0.1 percent over part length.

The Pilot series printers incorporate key components from Spectra-Physics, American Optowave, Scanlab and Panasonic. Features include a granite recoater frame, closed-loop control of key operating parameters, pump-fed refill capability and a high-efficiency vacuum recoating system.

The stereolithography process can produce prototypes across a broad range of toughness, temperature resistance, strength and stiffness. Other stereolithography applications include creating patterns for investment casting to create near-net-shape metal parts and metal-plated composites capable of die-cast metal properties that can be developed with a single piece of equipment.
