Selective Laser Sintering is a powder based 3D printing process that provides a foundation for industrial level parts with extreme accuracy and durability.

Print without the burden of support material or geometry limitations. Print with some of the most versatile thermoplastics like nylon 12.

Advantages

Scalability

  • Produce prototypes during design phases
  • Produce 100’s – 1,000’s of parts for production runs

Fast Turn Around

  • Parts in as little as 1 day
  • 100’s – 1,000’s of parts in days
  • Production planning for serial production

Durability

  • Great impact strength
  • High resistance to environment
  • Flexibility with certain geometries

Complexity and Precision

  • Powder based printing allows for ultimate design freedom
  • Complexity does not lead to additional cost like with CNC or Injection Molding
  • Meeting tolerances of +/- .005″ or +/- .002″ per inch

Applications

  • Prototyping
  • Production Parts
  • Jigs and Fixtures
  • Electronic Housings
  • Medical Devices
  • Architecture Models
