We run 18 SLA machines across Europe
10 in the UK (1 x 3D Systems ProX800, 3 x 3D Systems 7000, 3 x 3D Systems 500, and 3 x 3D Systems 350
5 in France (1 x 3D Systems IPro 8000, 2 x ProX800, and 2 x 3D Systems 3500)
2 in Poland (1 x 3D Systems 7000 and 1 x 3D systems 350)
1 in Spain (1 x 3D Systems 500)
This allows us to build parts using the most suitable machine and location(s), if the size of your project requires it.
SLA rapid prototypes are delivered typically within 2-5 days from the supply of customers' design data.
Realistically finished prototypes
Our in house finishing teams offer customers a range of surface finishes, along with a paint and texturing service, so that your prototypes look as real as possible.

Latest developments in stereolithography resins
At ARRK we keep an ear close to the ground for the latest developments in resins and our experts have selected a range to cover most applications.
What's more, we’re frequently asked by suppliers to beta test resins, allowing us to see some of the new materials that may be coming to the market.
The widest choice of resins around
We currently offer 5 different SLA resins to allow us to help you find the material that best suits your needs.
Some of the resins we currently offer include:
This grey looking material provides excellent durability. It's the toughest SLA material in our range.
Near Water Clear Resin
Durable, strong, water resistant and semi-transparent material. This material is also an ABS simulant type material. Suitable for quickcast prototypes for producing metal castings.
Polypropylene Simulant Resin
Flexible parts with high impact strength. This resin is ideal for snap-fit parts or where impact strength is all important.
