Stereolithography

STEREOLITHOGRAPHY
HIGH DEFINITION PROTOTYPES

Thanks to our 10 stereolithography machines, we are able to create a particularly accurate prototype or model working from a 3D CAD file. We are specialists in decorative elements (paint finish), precision parts and also very large scale objects with two systems with a capacity of 1500x750x550mm.

We use the very best resins to date, the Xtreme resin (grey) and Xtreme white. We are also able to produce clear pieces (Clearvue).

And we can also produce biocompatible pieces. Indeed the WaterShed XC resin has been given USP Class VI grading.

APPLICATIONS OF STEREOLITHOGRAPHY

This technique is part of 3D printing by adding material. Also computer-assisted, it consists first of all in creating a digitized or 3D model of the part to be manufactured. This sketch, with all the details, is then transferred to the matrix of the stereolithography apparatus which will then be responsible for producing the 3D printing of the object. This process is widespread in the industrial field. This allows for prototyping within very tight deadlines. Now, the use of the process is no longer limited to the prototyping framework. Indeed, ready-made parts can also be produced. It is necessary to underline the great precision of the apparatuses used for this type of realization. The complexity and size of the model to be printed no longer becomes a problem. In the automotive industry, for example, the technique allows the manufacture of a dashboard in one piece.

Erpro, First partner

Since 2001, we have been using exclusives with the new 3D stereolithography machines

2001

Erpro, first purchaser of the Viper SI2 / 3D Systems in the world (2001)

On our Viper SI2, in HR (High Resolution) mode, we produce pieces of a quality unequalled to date (layers of 0.05 mm, details smaller than 0.1 mm). – The best resolution possible with stereolithography technology. – The best detailed, fine, small pieces. Sandra Seitz, Head of Products Europe, 3D Systems.

2007

Erpro, first service provider in Europe to purchase the VIPER PRO (2007)

“As a pioneer in rapid prototyping and digital manufacturing services (…) we are delighted Erpro is to be the first service provider in Europe to invest in this system,” declared Joël Delanoue, Director of 3D Systems France.

2014

In June 2014, we announced as a world exclusive our purchase of a new 3D Systems “ProX 950” 3D printer with dimensions of 1500x750x550mm.

“We are delighted to see our new technology adopted so quickly by clients as professional as ERPRO and Sprint Plastique,” said Pascal Rizzon, Sales Director EMEA Production & Professional 3D Systems.
