Advancements SLA 3D printing means more demand and machines for Ogle

113 0

UK-based Ogle Models & Prototypes has purchased a second RPS Neo 800 machine to help improve turnaround times for larger models and prototypes within tighter timescales.

This 3D printer will allow Ogle’s specialist team to introduce a second clear material to the varied and high-end list of materials they already use for their Stereolithography (SLA) work.

The Neo 800 has a bed size of 800 x 800 x 600mm, which means larger parts can be made while retaining accuracy.
Ogle’s Managing Director Len Martin said: “We felt adding another large-frame 3D printing machine would help improve our turnaround times for larger models and prototypes within tighter timescales.”

“With the latest improvements in SLA technology including vastly improved materials with greater accuracy and durability, we firmly believe that, for us, the SLA process still offers the ultimate 3D printed prototype solution, which is why we have decided to further invest in the technology compared to the other 3D technologies which we continue to run in house.
