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

With up to 16W 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.

OPTIONS:

  • HELIOS S
    The S stands for “Superpeak,” meaning the already high performance is increased even more. While the standard version achieves 12W peak power in the image plane, HELIOS S reaches up to 16W. This value is essential when it comes to working with resins, which demand high power or exposure to large areas. Even at a pixel size of 160um, the peak intensity reaches over 15mW/cm2.

  • 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. 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.
