Powder Sintering is the translation of the English name Selective Laser Sintering, whose acronym is SLS. With this powder sintering or laser sintering technology, plastic powder particles are agglomerated by heat and the presence of a laser. A laser is then used to sinter the polyamide powder into a thin layer. The part is manufactured in successive layers of 0.10 mm when the process is repeated.
The SLS process produces functional plastic parts with isotropic mechanical properties, which can be used for detailed prototyping or low-volume production of functional parts.
The printing dimensions of our largest machine enable us to print parts up to 350 x 300 x 420 mm.
These advantages make it ideal for
For the Powder Sintering process, please allow 2 to 6 working days, depending on the size and finish of your project. For mini series (up to a few hundred pieces, please contact us for lead times).
For the design of your parts, plan for a minimum wall thickness of 0.8 mm.
