Materials: Tougher, Stronger SL Resin for Functional Prototypes—December 2010
WEB EXCLUSIVE: An “unprecedented combination of stiffness and toughness” is said to characterize Somos NeXt stereolithography (SL) resin from DSM Somos, Elgin, Ill.
Additive Manufacturing: New Capabilities for Rapid Prototypes And Production Parts
Many plastics processors are just starting to become familiar with the terms “additive manufacturing” or “additive fabrication,” which refer to a group of processes that build up parts by successively adding material, often in layers.
Blow Molders and Thermoformers Try Plastic Rapid Tooling
Rapid prototyping (RP) equipment is increasingly being used to manufacture prototype and short-run production molds for blow molded and thermoformed parts.
More Rugged Resins For Stereolithography
Two new resins are touted as breakthroughs in stereolithography (SL) rapidprototyping and rapid-manufacturing materials in that they boast a much closer approximation of thermoplastic ruggedness and durability.
New Materials Extend Reach of Rapid Prototyping
Stronger, tougher, stiffer, faster, and better-looking materials reflect the growing interest in rapid-prototyping and rapid-tooling technologies that can significantly decrease product development time and cost.
