SLs Printing

SLS printing is perfect for many of your rapid prototypes, low- and mid-volume productions, and functional testing.

Even highly advanced SLS printing technology isn’t completely reliable if you’re not working with the right team of manufacturing professionals.

01.
Precise and Efficient
SLS printing uses a variety of materials for printing desired 3 dimensional objects, a precise and efficient method for many applications. 
02.
Fast Turnaround
Projects needing expediency can rely on SLS printing for fast turnaround, even rivaling the speed of SLA manufacturing.
03.
Complex Geometries
With the ability to produce complex geometries, SLS printing creates low-volume parts that would typically require traditional manufacturing methods.

How it Works

SLS printing uses a high-powered laser to fuse small particles of powdered material together into complex and durable 3 dimensional parts.

 

This laser selectively fuses the powdered material by applying heat and pressure, a process also known as “sintering”.

Some basic details of our SLS printing process

In SLS projects, a laser sinters the polymer powder’s particles and fuses them together. We then build a part for every layer. We carefully choose the materials, which are usually thermoplastic polymers.

We preheat the powder with the SLS machine before starting the 3D printing process. However, the temperature is below the melting point. The laser can easily increase the temperature of the chosen parts. While the roller applies the polymer powder, the laser sinters it based on the 3D file. We lower the build platform and apply another layer of powder. We repeat the process until we create the desired part.

How do we provide SLS printing services?

We try to manage our SLS selective laser sintering projects differently and partner closely with our clients. Our dedicated engineers and other professionals work with our clients to understand their goals right from the beginning and talk through the product from prototype to production if necessary. Our project engineers will guide you in selecting the best materials for your prototype ensuring the optimal output!

However, we never compromise quality standards while designing the prototypes of the desired shape. Our team will discuss project delivery requirements, timeline, and cost. Our aim is to maintain transparency in the selective laser sintering printing process.

Created by 3D systems, we use a number of large-frame systems. Our specially designed printers are used for creating resilient parts. In most cases, we use chemical-resistant thermoplastics for the prototypes. You will find high durability because of the use of this material.

Using the SLS 3-dimensional printing technology, we apply laser to deal with raw materials like nylon powder. Our innovative printers enable us to maintain precision. The layer heights ranging from 50 to 200 microns are easily manageable by SLS 3D printers.
