Selective Laser Sintering

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.

The process is ideal for creating prototypes or 1 off custom parts. Particularly when you need tough and geometrically complex components.

Ideal for hinges, snaps, clips and/or parts exposed to high temperatures or caustic chemicals.

Parts from SLS printing can be used for production.

PROCESS LIMITATIONS:

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


MATERIALS:

NYLON 12 || NATURAL
GLASS-FILLED NYLON || NATURAL
FLAME-RETARDANT || NATURAL
CARBON-FILLED NYLON || BLACK
ALUMINUM-FILLED NYLON || GREY
PEKK HIGH-TEMP || BLACK


“I was wowed by your parts. Gave us a true assessment of our design both in wet and dry scenarios. Look forward to seeing pre-production parts.” — Cathy Hamill, Design Engineer – Newcastle, NSW
