The light-based UV curing process offers reduced production time compared to heat-based curing pro- cesses. The platform is said to deliver Six Sigma repeatability (Cpk > 2) across all materials, and data on Figure 4 Production show part-print speeds ranging to 100 mm/hr. The Figure 4 platform uses a process that 3D Systems describes as "high-speed digital molding," providing manufacturers the accuracy, reli- ability, repeatability and uptime of traditional molding but producing parts without the costs and time-consuming aspects of tooling. 3D Systems, West, Level 3 & Annex, Booth 431608 imts.com September 10-15, 2018 / Chicago, IL
