Pilot SD

A New Dimension in Stereolithography 3D Printing

  • Cost-effective ownership throughout entire life cycle.
  • Freedom to collaborate and innovate: open design for materials and machine access.
  • Printed parts demonstrate excellent sidewall quality and fine detail, contributing to lower post-finishing requirements.

System Features

  • Scanning speed of up to 12 m/s.
  • Closed loop control regulates platform movement, laser power, resin level, resin temperature, and vacuum pressure to ensure accuracy and stability.
  • Automatic control of surface level and processing parameters.
  • Granite recoater rim for enhanced stability.
  • Layer Thickness as low as 0.002 in (0.05 mm) for excellent surface quality.
  • Ethernet Connectivity.
  • Plunger-style leveling.
  • Pump-fed auto refill capability.

  • Components from top international brands – Spectra-Physics, SCANLAB, and Panasonic.
  • Full freedom of choice in materials: equipment uses any 355 nm SL material.
  • Three level of access (Operator, Engineer, Expert) controlled by user.

Versatile Application Range – High Accuracy – Excellent Surface Aesthetics
