The UVCA 3000 provides the final step for post-processing of printed parts. Initial post-processing of printed part includes the following:
- Removing excess material.
- Cleaning with TPM and/or isopropyl alcohol (IPA).
- Removing supports.
- Drying with compressed air.
After initial post-processing is complete and all excess material has been removed, the printed part can then be placed into the UVCA 3000.
Within the chamber, the part is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light for a specified period of time for final curing. The interior of the chamber is equipped with an array of UV bulbs, reflective surfaces, and a turntable that revolves at one revolution per minute. This ensures uniform exposure of all part surfaces to UV light and complete curing of the entire part.
