Product Spotlight: 3DLP9000 UV Light EngineJoel Coffman
With access to 4 million pixel resolution in a DLP® light engine capable of 3D printing down to the 365nm range, researchers and developers using DLi’s 3DLP9000 .9″ WQXGA Light Engine can speed up their work like never before. The 3DLP9000, the first of the 3DLightPro family, is a high efficiency light engine designed specifically with the professional-grade DLP® 3D printer in mind. Centered around the 0.9” WQXGA 2560 x 1600 Type-A DMD, this light engine gives users the largest available build area. This unique light engine is easy to assemble and service while giving innovators access to the entire 3D printing UV spectrum.
The 3DLP9000 was designed with high uniformity and low distortion to help maximize power delivered to the resin. The pixel size projected onto the vat was selected to provide fine resolution while maximizing build area. However, we did build adaptability into the projection lens, giving customers yet another way to differentiate their printer. In addition to the 100µm FOV projection lens currently offered with the 3DLP9000 light engine, users will now have the added choice of a 30µm FOV lens. The 30µm projection lens fits right into the existing 3DLP9000 housing, making it convenient and cost-effective for users with a 100µm projection lens to upgrade their system as well as interchange lens assemblies.
Anticipating that the 3DLP9000 may be used for both R&D and production, we designed two focus modes – a simple, flexible focus mode ideal for R&D and a fixed focus mode that locks in the field of view for easy assembly and field support once in production. For easy assembly and field support, we also designed a symmetrical linear stage to make it easy to set up in either a top-down or bottom-up 3D printing projection orientation.
The 3DLP9000 offers optimal UV efficiency, world-class distortion control and uniformity, focus flexibility, and mounting options to benefit applications with even the most stringent accuracy and precision requirements.
