Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a powder-based 3D printing technology that uses a laser to fuse material layers into a final part. After the laser traces a cross-section of the CAD design(s) onto a material layer, the build platform lowers and another layer is fused on top. The build platform continues to lower until every layer is built and the part is complete.
SLS technology produces tough and durable parts that excel in high-performance prototyping and end-use applications. SLS uses production-grade nylon materials, resulting in durable, functional parts that last. In fact, SLS printed parts rival other parts produced using traditional manufacturing methods. The robustness of SLS makes this technology great for:
Best-in-class part quality, fast build times, automated production tools and a 20% lower total cost of operation over similar printers
Broad range of production-grade nylon 11, nylon 12 and reinforced materials
Automated 3D part nesting
High-throughput of medium-sized parts (up to 330mm long)
Production-grade nylon parts production
Produce housings, machinery components, complex end-use parts, functional assemblies, jigs and fixtures
