APPLICATION RANGE

  • Considering the specified of the      procedure, the main application range is the working area of conceptual      design.

  • Used for large bulky models as      sandcasting patterns.

ADVANTAGES

  • Variety of organic and inorganic      materials can be used such as paper, plastic, ceramic, composite, etc.

  • The costs are relatively low.

  • The process is much faster than      competitive techniques.

  • The process produces virtually no      internal stress and associated undesirable deformation.

  • LOM Slice possesses the robust      capacity of dealing with imperfect STL files, created with      discontinuities, in which the surfaces of STL objects are not closed      completely.

  • Best suited for building large      parts, as if the machine with the largest workspace on the market today.

DISADVANTAGES

  • The stability of the objects is      limited by the bonding strength of the glued layers.

  • As the procedure is not well      suited for manufacturing parts with thin walls in the z-direction, the application      range is approximately restricted to complex parts.

  • Hollow parts, like bottles, can      not be built.

AVAILABLE SYSTEMS

  • Helisys,      USA: LOM 1015, 2030.
