Solid Ground Curling (SGC)
The solid ground curing Process of the Israeli Firm Cubital employs a UV Lamp and a Light mask for the hardening process.
The process relies on 2 parallel work cycles:
1. In the masking cycle a pattern is developed on a Glass plate with a photo copier system and then after the light process wiped clean.
2. The layer building cycle is a costly build process. The solidifying process surrounds the model with wax. In the first step, a thin layer of hardened polymer is laid on the finished layers. This is exposed through the prepared Mask. Then, the unexposed liquid resin is sucked up, and a layer is complete. To remove the resin around the polymers and to guarantee the liability of the layers, afterwards the complete layer around a certain depth is milled off.
To finish the parts they must be cleaned by dissolving the wax shell by flushing it in a warm solution (for example, with lime extract).
