Stratasys V650 Flex Stereolithography

Sure to send shockwaves through the industry, Stratasys has announced that they will be bringing an all-new, entirely homegrown, SL (Stereolithography) system to the marketplace.

In case you aren’t aware, the SL process is uniquely different from the FDM and Polyjet processes that have propelled Stratasys the top position in the world of additive manufacturing equipment OEM’s.

The SL process is characterized by using a scanning laser to selectively harden an open vat of photocurable resin one layer at a time. This announcement adds significant context to Stratasys’ acquisition of Solid Concepts Inc. (now Stratasys Direct Manufacturing – SDM) back in 2014 where this new platform was originally conceived. This system has been used in support of and put through its paces by SDM as a printing services organization for several years now. It is finally ready for prime time and ready to replace the industry’s aging fleet of SL products.
