YOUR RAPID PROTOTYPING MANUFACTURERS IN CHINA
WayKen provides multi-faceted rapid prototyping services, including stereo lithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS). We are experts of rapid prototyping China. By applying the latest digital technology, our staff of highly-experienced specialists is capable of meeting the most stringent demands in terms of time. There are many benefits for SLA Prototyping and SLS Prototyping especially if you know how to develop your product design to take advantage of them, saving cost and enjoying the precision in prototype parts. These Print Rapid prototype parts can help verify a design, express an idea issues early in the development process and feedback directly on design fix, leading to further investment in the product before it goes to market. At WayKen, we know the time significance for any business; we prototype maker strive to meet all specified times to deliver products in the highest standard to our clients worldwide at affordable prices. We would love any opportunity and challenge to assist all the prototype model making.
RAPID PROTOTYPING OVERVIEW
SLA Prototyping/SLS Prototyping also known as solid freeform fabrication is an additive layering process. A three-dimensional computer model of a part is sliced into layers by the computer program, each slice is fed to a processor in turning laser directs in X and Y axis directions, mean time controlling the beam output power, and cure or sinter through either UV laser (SLA) or CO2 laser (SLS). After the slice is completed the system’s build mechanism vertically repositions incrementally (Z vector), usually between 0.1mm per layer. This process is repeated until the vertical height of the part is completed. Build time can range from one hour to many hours depending upon the part volume and height.
SELECTING THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY – SLA & SLS
•SLA is a UV curable epoxy resin base system. Its only material epoxy resin is practical limits to fast prototyping and manufacturing applications. Normally, parts that produce from SLA are use as master models and transfer to urethane castings using silicone rubber molds (SRM) to do the parts copy.
•SLS materials are suited for direct functional applications where performance demands robust resistance to chemical, heat, wear, abrasion, flexibility, and internal/external surface pressures.
