THE TECHNOLOGY HOUSE ACCELERATES LARGE-SCALE PARTS PRODUCTION WITH 3D SYSTEMS’ SLA 750
SLA 750 is the world’s fastest Stereolithography printer, helping The Technology House deliver for its customers 50% faster than with the previous platform.
3D Systems announced The Technology House (TTH), an Ohio-based contract manufacturer, has purchased an SLA 750 to enhance its manufacturing workflow. 3D Systems’ latest Stereolithography (SLA) printer offers unprecedented levels of throughput and reliability as compared to other available SLA printers. The combination of the SLA 750’s high-speed production, large build area, and broad materials portfolio is allowing TTH to expand the services offered to its customers. TTH is now able to help its customers push the boundaries of innovation — from prototyping to finished parts — for a range of industrial and healthcare applications.
The Technology House opened in 1996 as a 3D Systems customer with one SLA 500 3D printer. Since that time, TTH has continued to integrate additional 3D Systems SLA printers including SLA 5000s, SLA 7000s, and Vipers among other 3D Systems technology. After 3D Systems introduced the SLA 750 in 2022, TTH chose to add it to their workflow due to its exceptional capabilities, including enhanced automation and efficiency that results in shorter lead times, faster post-processing, and improved part quality.
3D Systems’ SLA 750 is designed to deliver the industry-leading combination of print size, speed, accuracy, and resolution for final parts that possess unmatched finish and mechanical performance. The 3D printer delivers up to 30% faster print speeds and has a 15% larger build envelope and smaller hardware footprint than previous models, allowing manufacturers to optimize and scale production. The system features a self-calibrating dual-rail recoater to improve print process reliability and final part mechanical properties.
Additionally, Hyper-Scan™ vector technology — a proprietary scanning algorithm developed to address the unique requirements of production additive manufacturing applications — optimizes key speed and productivity elements such as laser focus and power, as well as vector motor kinematics to deliver significantly improved printer speed and throughput. The printer includes downstream automation readiness and is robot compatible for 24/7 lights-out operation (e.g., fully automatic printer turnover, job-offloading, washing, onboarding). The SLA 750 also includes 3D Sprint®, all-in-one software to prepare, optimize, and print 3D CAD data. 3D Sprint delivers all the tools needed to quickly and efficiently go from design to high-quality, true-to-CAD printed parts without relying on multiple software packages.
