SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING
What is SLS?
With no need for support structures, this technology is suitable for interlocking parts, moving parts, living hinges and other highly complex designs. Whether you need fully functional prototypes or a series of complex end-use parts, Laser Sintering’s design freedom serves both. Besides, we make production fast and cost-effective for you by maximizing the available build space in each machine.
SLS operation principle is powder sintering with the help of infrared laser in elevated temperature which helps the grains of the powder to consolidate before being bound with the laser beam. In the conventional SLS printer there is a so called “bed” on which the roller spreads a thin layer of powder followed by sintering according to the layers sliced from a 3D model file (e.g. a .stl file (derived from CAD-like designing software).
Nylon 12 (PA12)
ABS plastic and 3D FDM/FFF printers are a very popular combination for many applications.The physical properties of this type of plastic, like its impact resistance, tensile strength and stiffness, and its heat deflection temperature, are real advantages. It can also be used for mechanical purposes, or for its electrical properties.
Glass filled Nylon 12 (PA12)
PLA filament is by far the most popular material used in FDM 3D printing, and there’s a good reason for that. It comes in many shades and styles, making it ideal for a wide range of applications. PLA filament is an easy-to-use and aesthetically pleasing material if you’re looking for vibrant colours or unique blends.
PETG filament is an extra tough 3D print material. This is an extreme high strength filament and can achieve very sturdy and strong prints. It is perfect for large flat surfaces as it has very low shrinkage
