SLS: Selective Laser Sintering

SLS additive manufacturing uses a laser to bond small grains of plastic, ceramic, glass or other materials such as metals, layer by layer into a 3D dimensional structure.

With SLS 3D Printing Technology we can produce nylon or carbon filled nylon parts that are both strong and accurate. The process employs a high amount of energy to fuse or sinter, composite powders together producing both prototypes and functional end-use components. By nesting multiple models into one build, the surrounding powder acts as a reusable support material, making SLS one of the most cost effective options in 3D Printing.
