Prodways has developed MOVINGLight technology which, when combined with its PLASTCure Rigid 10500 material, can print molds in a few hours with high precision and native pixels of 42 microns. According to the manufacturer, this technology allows for a faster printing speed than conventional stereolithography or multijet through the polymerization of the manufacturing surface by a moving DLP.
The material’s rigidity allows production of molds that are simple to polish and adjust and resistant to pressure. Its ceramic load gives printed molds the temperature resistance to limit thermal aging effects. The printed molds also allow the injection of very high-precision parts—up to several hundred parts, depending on the geometries of the parts and the material used.
