Stereolithography chosen for model making
Kemo reports stereolithography models will better satisfy its customers' needs for complex, direct manufacturing of consumer electronics, medical appliances and all types of engineering prototypes
3D Systems Corp. has installed its first iPro SLA Precision Center in Benelux at Kemo B.V., a global engineering company that produces high-quality prototypes and functional models.
Kemo has purchased a new iPro 8000 SLA Center to complement its CNC machining services when complex components are needed. The iPro 8000 is a high-productivity system that quickly builds parts with superior surface smoothness, feature resolution, edge definition and tolerances, rivaling the accuracy of CNC-machined parts.
"Until now, we relied on CNC machining and vacuum-casting for our model-making," said Marc Kemkens, Kemo's General Manager. "We are very impressed with the accuracy of 3D Systems' iPro Systems and the advanced properties of the company's Accura Materials and believe that stereolithography models will better satisfy our customers' needs for complex, direct manufacturing of consumer electronics, medical appliances and all types of engineering prototypes. It is exciting to be the first company in Benelux to offer iPro parts."
Kemo is running Accura 60 Plastic for transparent models and tough Accura Xtreme Plastic for ABS-like components in its new iPro 8000 SLA Center.
"We are pleased to deliver our next-generation Stereolithography technology to Kemo, an innovative company with an impressive list of international clients," said Greg Elfering, 3D Systems' European Vice President for Sales and Marketing. "We are thrilled that this CNC model-shop has invested in our cutting-edge Direct Manufacturing solutions to take its modeling business into a whole new level of quality, accuracy, speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness."
