New material available at Sculpteo: Discover Ultracur3D® EPD 1006
Posted By Lucie Gaget on Dec 23, 2020 |
To end 2020 on a nice note, we’ve decided to offer you one last good news: a new resin material is now available for your next 3D printing projects!
New material: Ultracur3D® EPD 1006
Ultracur3D® EPD 1006 is a resin material for 3D printing, powered by Photocentric technology and part of the new Engineering Plastic Daylight (EPD) photopolymer product line. This resin is a daylight reactive urethane photopolymer material.
Suitable for production, perfectly adapted for the creation of big parts, and offering the possibility to manufacture detailed objects, this resin material has numerous advantages. Indeed, Ultracur3D® EPD 1006 offers the possibility to manufacture high-quality parts for demanding applications and industries, at a competitive price. The high toughness and flexibility will meet the needs of customers willing to print prototyping, engineering, and large-scale parts.
3D printed Ultracur3D® EPD 1006 parts are black and manufactured using Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) technology, a 3D printing technique particularly adapted to mass-production.
What is LCD technology?
Resin 3D printing, known as vat polymerization, is represented by three technologies: SLA (Stereolithography), DLP (Digital Light Processing), LCD (Liquid Crystal Display).
Regarding the LCD technology process, a UV light coming from an array of LEDs shining through an LCD flashes complete layers at the resin tank. A screen is used to mask the entire image, only revealing the current layer for curing. LCD 3D printing is a cost-effective resin manufacturing technique to get big and detailed functional parts. This 3D printing technology focuses on mass manufacturing and large component 3D printing for resin materials.
