Tyco Electronics, a unit of Tyco International Ltd. and a supplier of electrical connection devices under the trade name AMP, has been using stereolithography for more than a decade. However, an AMP connector design requirement, which had previously gone unfulfilled for years, was the production of stereolithography parts containing living hinges. Hours of experimentation, coupled with the ProtoFunctional™ characteristics deliverable with the DSM Somos® 8100 resin Series, has reportedly enabled the company to achieve stereolithography success.
