Mono3 DLP Printer

Instrumentation | Synthesis and Formulation

Mono3 is a light-driven printer that uses three different LEDs 459, 520, 617 nm to convert liquid resin into solid objects. Mono3 uses a Digital Light Processing (DLP) chip to project a patterned light that selectively exposes and hardens the resin. This technology allows for the entire layer to be exposed at once, allowing for fast build speeds independent of object complexity.
