SLA Technology

3D Printing

The removal of stereolithography (SLA) resins is messy and cumbersome, often creating a bottleneck in the 3D printing manufacturing process. Better Engineering has developed both water-based and solvent-based processes to safely and effectively remove SLA resins without damaging delicate substrates. Our innovative technology ensures consistency, increased throughput, and great productivity.
