3D Printing with SLS Technology

Discover the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printing technology and how you can use it to produce your objects from 1 - 10k parts

What is SLS 3D printing technology?

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) is an additive manufacturing method. It creates parts additively by sintering fine polymer powder particles, to fuse them together locally. Your plastic part will be created layer by layer, according to your 3D model. 

During the 3D printing process, the SLS machine preheats the bulk powder material in the powder bed somewhat below its melting point, to make it easier for the laser to raise the temperature of the selected regions the rest of the way to the melting point.

A roller will apply a layer of polymer powder, then the laser will sinter the powder according to the 3D file and the build platform will lower before applying a new layer of powder…  The process will be repeated until the desired part is created

Why choose SLS 3D printing technology?

Whether you’re producing single objects, small batches, or mass-producing, SLS 3D printing is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to 3D print high quality objects.
