Proto Labs is proud to introduce PolyJet technology to their 3D printing capabilities. PolyJet technology is used to provide designers and engineers with the ability to manufacture elastomeric and overmolded prototypes without investing in tooling. This technology can create 3D-printed parts comprising both elastomeric and rigid materials, as well as multiple colors.
The Polyjet machine works by jetting out droplets of liquid photopolymers onto a build platform where they are immediately cured, thereby, building the parts layer-by-layer. Material selections for parts include multiple Shore A hardnesses of tear-resistant Agilus 30 for increased durability. PolyJet parts exhibit smooth surface finishes, can support complex geometries with flexible features, and are ready without the need for additional finishing once the building process is complete and support structures are removed.
