Sintering HP MJF
Selective laser sintering (SLS)
SLS or Selective laser sintering is an additive manufacturing technique in 3D printing for rapid prototyping. SLS uses a laser as the power source to sinter powdered material, typically nylon or polyamide. SLS sintering can produce complex and highly accurate geometries at relatively low cost. Therefore SLS is often used for both prototyping and small series production in engineering. The SLS process can be used to substitute functional injection moulded parts. Post processing techniques like sanding and painting can make the prototype represent the final product very closely.
SLS produces high performance plastic parts with good mechanical properties and chemical resistance. The new nylon PA11 ensures excellent performance in terms of elasticity and high degree of water resistance.
- Functional testing models
- High performance mechanical components
- First production batches of complex geometrical parts up to 10.000 parts
- Prototypes of high-degree of details
By using the latest 3D technology there are practically limitless possibilities to create prototypes in variety of shapes and sizes. SLS makes it possible to get extreme dimension accuracy and fine detail. It gives designers and concept development teams the ability to produce parts and concept models easily economically.
