3D resin printing

What is resin technology with Kanèsis 100% biobased resins suitable for?

Jewelery | Jewelery (objects can be made with meltable resins) | Dental sector
Model making | Realization of very small objects

3D resin printing is based on a different process in the final phase of the product: after placing the material layer by layer, hardening occurs through exposure to ultraviolet light. This type of printing therefore uses photosensitive liquid resin and exists in three variants: SLAor stereolithography, DLP and LCD. The main difference between the three technologies concerns the way in which the product is illuminated and fixed at the end of production.

SLA is used above all for hobby and solidifies the printed resin by illuminating it with a UV light. In the case of DLP printing, a projector is used that projects the object to be printed on a pixelated canvas, so that the area indicated by the display is illuminated and fixed layer by layer. LCD technology, on the other hand, uses an LCD screen as a source of UV light to illuminate the printed object.

Kanèsis owns resin printers that useSLA technology.

Resin 3D printing allows for higher production accuracy, with more complex shapes and also to create transparent models. The resins on the market are of different types, but most are toxic and emit fumes that require a dedicated and well-ventilated room for production. This is why Kanèsis uses only 100% Biobased resins, both to protect our young people in production and to protect the environment.

For this reason, resin 3D printers are more expensive and are also used for medicine, dentistry, scientific uses, product design and art.
