Hennef, September 2017 – After nine months of development, the company DruckWege, located in Hennef, released their own UV-sensitive resin. The resin formula has been adjusted to DLP and UV/LCD light sources and allows extremely fast curing processes, taking less than 6 seconds to cure 150 micrometer layers. Based on these results, DruckWege joins the few third party manufacturers who have developed resins of this nature.
The Type D resin has been developed by DruckWege while partnering up with a local company who draw on generations of expertise in resin for more than 35 years.
Currently, DruckWege offers various colors ranging from blue, green, black, red and white, as well as a transparent. In addition, the resins are delivered in an environmental friendly recyclable aluminum container offering sufficient protection for transport and superior storage.
Summed up, some of the main characteristics of the resin are:
- cures fast on around 5s / Layer
- creates sharp and clear surfaces
- high rigidity as demanded in industrial applications
- leaves the model with low shrinkage
- is VOC free
- made in Germany
Working in cooperation with the Technical University of Cologne, further studies were conducted in material analytics to determine the resin properties in detail.
„Our resins are more than capable of competing with other products. Our technical data sheets offer full transparency with regards to chemical composition and technical properties of the resins, “ said Isis Cisneros, project lead at DruckWege.
The level of detail of the data sheets has been in focus and in above the level of those of competitors. In it, light spectrum has been particularly fine tunes so that the customer can match their specific equipment to the properties of the resin.
By now, some first reviews have been published by several users already. At the moment, DruckWege is setting up reseller cooperations worldwide and recently announced the first reseller for DruckWege products in the US, Monoprinter in Allston (USA).
Throughout 2017 and projected into 2018, a brand new series of resins are planned: a castable resin, a resin for laser-assisted illumination, as well as for fast curing resins in the range of daylight spectrums, similar to process with LCD light sources.
