The arrival of fine detail resolution (FDR) technology makes it possible to achieve a remarkable balance in polymer additive manufacturing (AM). Using FDR, you can build durable parts with the high level of detail resolution typically associated with stereolithography (SLA) at the industrial production volume and pace of selective laser sintering (SLS).
Ensure your AM series production leads to parts as complex and detailed as your prototypes with FDR's cutting-edge system, and meet the demands of your most challenging industrial 3D printing applications.
Polymers vary widely on the spectrum of sustainability. Some are recyclable or otherwise material-efficient; others are much less so. PA 11 belongs in the former category. It's made entirely from castor beans, which grow on marginal lands not suitable for food crops, and it can be recycled. Also, while you wouldn't want to eat castor beans, the PA 11 made from them is biocompatible, making it useful for the medical field as well as products that come in contact with food.
By contrast, the photopolymer resins in SLA and DLP are toxic and require careful disposal procedures. During production, the resins produce unpleasant fumes and require you to wear gloves when handling them.
