Caligma 200 - Hot Lithography

With its patented Hot Lithography technology, Cubicure’s Caligma 200 production plant enables the easy and professional processing of high performance photopolymers. The core of this technology is a specifically developed heating and coating mechanism which can process resins and pastes of the highest viscosity (at processing temperatures up to 120°C) with highest reliability and precision. Machine design focused on the combination of flexibility of usable materials and the greatest possible process safety.

Precisely defined and controlled process parameters for Cubicure’s standard materials as well as the finest adaptability for new developments or material combinations make the Caligma 200 an unrivaled additive tool for research and development tasks. Furthermore, it enables the economic production of small and medium batch sizes of polymer parts and composites.

Cubicure ThermoBlast – for operating temperatures up to 300°C | Revolutionary high-temperature material for Additive Manufacturing

ThermoBlast is Cubicure’s third material and shows high stiffness, very good flame resistance compared to standard SLA materials and extremely high heat deflection temperature. Cubicure ThermoBlast is the first 3D-printable material, which can withstand operating temperatures up to 300°C. With this material, a wide range of new applications arises for additive manufacturing.

At formnext trade fair 2018 Cubicure presented the brand-new polymer ThermoBlast. Since 2017 Cubicure offers the specially developed and patented 3D printing system ‘Caligma 200’ and associated materials. In addition to high-performance photopolymers ‘Evolution’ for functional prototypes and ‘Precision’ for precision applications, Cubicure has for the first time succeeded in developing a high-temperature material for additive manufacturing, which can withstand operating temperatures of up to 300°C: ThermoBlast, a high-strength photopolymer with an extremely high heat deflection temperature.
Moreover, its high flame resistance compared to SLA standards not only opens additional fields of applications – such as in the electronics industry - but further qualifies ThermoBlast for additive manufactured injection molds or automotive parts as well as for its use in aerospace and food industry applications.

“Either used for tooling or in extreme process conditions, Cubicure ThermoBlast is a game changer in the usability of 3D-printed parts”, Dr. Robert Gmeiner, CEO of Cubicure GmbH, says and continues: “For SLA, the transition from both acrylate and methacrylate dominated material systems towards performance chemistry is now being enabled. This offers tremendous possibilities for Hot Lithography-based parts.”

Material for Hot Lithography
ThermoBlast’s high viscosity is solely processable with the unique and patented Hot Lithography technology provided by Cubicure. Hot Lithography (HL) is an additive manufacturing technique Cubicure developed for the processing of poorly flowable material systems. A laser-based SLA process was combined with a special, newly developed and heatable coating system. This technology for the first time enables the processing of technical relevant polymers with highest precision, significantly enlarging the chemical capabilities in resin development compared to traditional stereolithographic systems.

Cubicure GmbH was founded in March 2015 as a spin-off of TU Wien by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Stampfl (Institute of Material Science and Technology) and Dr. Robert Gmeiner. The company deals with the additive manufacturing of high performance polymers for industrial applications. Cubicure’s patented Hot Lithography technology enables the usage of high-molecular chemical substances for a high precision 3D-printing process. The technology’s core is a specially developed and patented heating and coating mechanism which is capable of processing resins and pastes of highest viscosity at operating temperatures up to 120°C. Cubicure develops photopolymers with thermoplast-like properties. Since 2017 Cubicure offers a newly developed and patented 3D-printer and associated materials.

About us

Company details

In most cases, lithography-based 3D-printed polymer parts have not yet taken the step into industrial applications and productions. This is due to the poor material properties of the available photopolymers. Due to their molecule structure and high crosslinking density, they are brittle and lose their stiffness at elevated temperatures.
Cubicure offers high performance photopolymers and an additive manufacturing process to overcome this dilemma.
