Being amongst one of the best providers of Design and Manufacturing Automation solutions in India, since its inception in 2001, BEACON has grown both in its operational base as well as customers across the small, medium and large sectors. With this vast experience, BEACON has now forayed into the 3D printer business partnering with Formlabs.
Formlabs is a 3D printing technology developer and manufacturer. The Somerville, Massachusetts-based company was founded in September 2011 by three MIT Media Lab students. Formlabs manufactures Stereolithography SLA based 3D printers. Formlabs Printers are known to be reliable and affordable 3D printers for Professionals. Formlabs SLA 3D printers are office friendly and can be setup easily on a desktop and hence a great solution for inhouse 3D printing. Formlabs proprietary preform software helps prepare the CAD design and print it on Formlabs printers with just a few clicks. With Advanced Resin materials, Formlabs provides an opportunity to print anything from a small Jewellery to complicated Medical/Anatomical part.
Stereolithography belongs to a family of additive manufacturing technologies known as vat photopolymerization, commonly known as resin 3D printing. These machines are all built around the same principle, using a light source—a laser or projector—to cure liquid resin into hardened plastic. The main physical differentiation lies in the arrangement of the core components, such as the light source, the build platform, and the resin tank.Watch how stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing works.
