The most powerful UV Light Engine for Additive Manufacturing

Designed to increase the throughput of DLP 3D-printing, Helios combines In-Vision's new proprietary high-power illumination module with high-performance optics.

With up to 12W of output power, Helios will contribute to more cost-effective prints, enable applications based on new materials, and qualify additive manufacturing further for serial production.

New modular design for easier operations

HELIOS is fully built in sub-assemblies for highest accessibility. Replacing the LED of your light engine has never been easier.

Helios DUO & Helios TRIO make it possible to work with up to three different wavelengths in one device

With Helios Duo and Helios Trio, it is possible to work with up to three multiple wavelengths from 365 to 405 nanometers. In future, there will also be illumination modules with 460 nanometers available. The customer is free to choose between the configurations, with a choice of lenses for pixel sizes from 2 to 162um. The system is water-cooled with a fully encapsulated light path. Robust in design, it can cope with rough production environments where dust and vapours are very hard on optical systems.
