SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING (SLS) 2017-03-02T11:52:52+00:00

Hunting for parts produced in material you can actually use?  SLS could be your answer.  Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a layer-by-layer additive 3D printing process using powdered nylon.  This material is fused in slices by a high-powered laser to form functional end-use parts.  Nylon is a flexible and strong production material so end-use parts tend to be parts with flex features, hinges, snaps, clips and/or are exposed to high or low temperatures or caustic chemicals.  SLS parts can be used for production.

PROCESS LIMITATIONS:

  • Slightly longer lead times
  • Rougher surface finish
  • Lower tolerance / less precise build
