Applications & Case Studies
CU Boulder uses SLA cars to drive education
Mechanical engineering students at the University of Colorado at Boulder are treated each year to a generous donation from Spectrum Plastics Group- a guest lecture introducing them to Additive Manufacturing, and a sponsorship that gives each one of them first-hand SLA experience, as they design and produce their own custom RC car bodies.
Building better Phantoms - Varian SLA Application
Spectrum Plastics Group was featured in a story by DSM Somos about another successful application of their WaterShed SLA resin. Varian Inc. develops calibration systems for MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) devices, and found a unique and successful solution using SLA models.
Spring Manufacturing Using Ultem
When presented with the challenge of creating the first molded LeeP spring, many competing companies walked away from this, while others were hesitant to commit on quality or delivery. Mr. Yee reflects, “Spectrum Plastics Group exceeded our expectations on just about every front… their ability to take our concept and develop extremely difficult prototype tools and then mold highly engineered plastics was unlike any company we have worked with.
