Paragon Installs Explorer Laser

December 2009

Paragon is the first customer of RP Support to install a Spectra Physics Explorer laser, providing a major step forward in reliability and longevity for their SLA250®. The Explorer is a high performance, compact and robust laser platform and this fully integrated, pre-assembled combination of a small and powerful laser head provides an upgrade that represents a cost effective solution to Paragon as well as allowing them access to the full range of stereolithography materials to be utilised on this SLA® platform.

The Explorer laser upgrade is a fully integrated product. It includes electronics to turn the laser off at the end of a build and optical components to correctly focus the beam at the resin surface. The ability to produce up to 300mW enables this laser to be used in a single or a dual machine configuration.

Paragon is using DSM Somos® ProtoGen™ 18920 resin which has the look and feel of a grey engineering type plastic. It provides considerable processing latitude and is ideal for medical, electronic, aerospace and automotive market applications.
