Selective Laser Sintering
Efficient Powder-based Technology
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a powder-based technology that uses a C02 laser to sinter each layer together. With a wide variety of plastic powders available, you can easily find a material that will create the end-use part you envisioned.
Because of the abundance in material options, end-use parts that are used in demanding and harsh environments can be produced with reduced tooling costs and faster lead times.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Process
Layer of powdered material is applied to build platform.
Laser is used to solidify a cross-section of powdered material.
Platform is lowered and next layer of powder is applied. Process is repeated.
Unused powder is removed. Finish part is revealed.
Max Size Capabilities
EOS SLS machines are top of the line in the 3D printing industry. This technology can create highly complex geometries with a large build volume. Let us know if you have any questions when designing for SLS.
In SLS, Nylon 12 PA is the most popular base material. It can be added with glass, aluminum, or chopped carbon fiber for more robust parts.
- Nylon 11
- Nylon 12 PA
- Nylon 12 FR, GF, CF, AF
Part geometries, wall thicknesses, and build orientation may have an affect on your part. If you have any questions please contact us.
