The term ‘additive manufacturing’ includes a broad range of different technologies. We’ve summarized the potential benefits of additive manufacturing, the specific benefits of DLP technology versus other additive manufacturing technologies and ultimately the unique added value atum3D products offer compared to other DLP machines. With atum3D, you’re able to reap the full benefits of the additive manufacturing potential.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Additive manufacturing refers to a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build up a part in layers by depositing material. The strengths of additive manufacturing lie in those areas where conventional manufacturing reaches its limitations.

Compared to traditional methods, additive manufacturing offers significant benefits.


Efficiency

  • Create complex parts without impact on efficiency/cost
  • Create many different parts without impact on efficiency/cost
  • Little waste
  • Accurate production planning
  • Low investment (no molds)
  • Short time from development to production

Flexibility

  • Design determines production
  • Easy modification & redesign potential for product customization

Specifications

  • Complex structures
  • Lighter solid parts with semi-hollow interior

DIGITAL LIGHT PROCESSING

Digital Light Processing (DLP) is an additive manufacturing process based on photopolymer resins.

The resins react with light and cure to form a solid in a very precise way to speedily produce accurate parts.

Key benefits

  • Resolution
  • Flexibility
  • Material use efficiency
  • Cost efficiency
  • Material properties
  • Fusion between layers
