Shaping Things To Come...


The AAROFLEX Solid Imager

[The Machine]AAROFLEX, Inc. is the manufacturer of the AAROFLEX Solid Imager(TM), a machine which creates three-dimensional physical models representing Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) files. The AAROFLEX Solid Imager utilizes a revolutionary rapid prototyping and freeform fabrication process based on patented stereolithography technology developed by DuPont. This innovative method allows fabrication of solid or thin, hollow-wall constructions with intricate detail, at a fraction of the time and cost of conventional model-making methods.

AAROFLEX Solid Models

Models which have historically taken days or weeks to construct through traditional subtractive modeling methods can be fabricated in mere hours utilizing the AAROFLEX system, allowing designers, production directors and marketing personnel the ability to review the functionality, manufacturability and marketability of a product within days of the initial design. This enabling technology revolutionizes manufacturing by shortening design and development cycles, enhancing design quality and accuracy and reducing development costs.

ACCUSCAN (TM) Scanning System

The AAROFLEX Solid Imager (TM) has the following new features that make it the fastest, most accurate and efficient rapid prototyping system on the market. These new features are:

AccuScan (TM) scanning system - The new, faster, more accurate raster scan mode on the AccuScan(TM) system scans the entire surface from one end to the other. This allows parts with complicated geometries to be drawn smoothly without stepping and dry joints.

SmartScan (TM) - The newest feature on the AccuScan(TM) scanning system, SmartScan scans the area of the geometry being drawn, not the total width of the vat. This feature reduces the scanning time according to the exposed surface area of the part on the platform, as opposed to having to scan the entire area of the platform.

The Solid Imager is the first stereolithography system to offer a scanner that is not only capable of the fast and efficient raster scan, but is also capable of calculating the geometry of a part and selectively scanning the surface area of the part slice it solidifies. The increased speed and efficiency achieved by these features widen the gap betweent he Solid Imager capabilities and that of its competitors.

AROFLEX, Inc. is offering service bureaus the opportunity to sample the capabilities of what we believe to be the largest, fastest, most accurate and efficient rapid prototyping system in the world - the AAROFLEX Solid Imager. This is a demonstration of advanced technology and a superior product at less cost.

AAROFLEX will provide rapid prototyping services below current market price to service bureaus interested in the capabilities of the AAROFLEX Solid Imager and the DuPont resins. This allows service bureaus interested in purchasing the AAROFLEX Solid Imager to sample the technology at a low cost. Service bureaus are invited to use AAROFLEX's services to manufacture parts in the event of a crunch period at a price that will allow them to add a percentage and make a profit. Price protection will be provided to service bureaus who own and use an AAROFLEX machine.

Service bureaus may receive a 25% cash discount for parts fabricated by AAROFLEX on the AAROFLEX Solid Imager or receive a credit of 40% of the amount paid on service invoices towards the purchase of an AAROFLEX Solid Imager. There are several AAROFLEX Solid Imagers currently awaiting delivery. Purchasers of the AAROFLEX Solid Imager will be given priority in our build schedule over potential buyers.

AAROFLEX can provide these discounts and continue to reap an attractive profit on rapid prototyping services due to the faster, more accurate ACCUSCAN scanning system, and reduced build and finishing time. Additionally, the positive applicator blade system helps reduce down time caused by "dry-wipes" thereby producing a more efficient machine.

Parts built on the AAROFLEX Solid Imager are satisfaction guaranteed. If a part built on the Solid Imager is not adequate, it may be returned, along with a written statement of the cause of dissatisfaction, within 10 days for a full refund.
