Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing technology used in prototyping applications for parts with complex geometry, like hinges, joints and snap fits. Using your CAD data, we can deliver high-quality DuraForm® ProX® PA Plastic parts to you in a shorter amount of time than traditional prototyping methods.

 

How SLS Works

The printing process begins with your 3D CAD file which our machine mathematically slices into 2D cross-sections. Our machine then builds your three dimensional parts by scanning those cross-sections and using a laser to selectively sinter heated plastic powder, fusing the powder particles together layer by layer according to the design until finished. Since parts are produced in a bed of powder, multiple parts can be produced at once.
