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 custom production 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.

Case Studies:



DURAFORM EX  || Tough, impact-resistant plastic prototypes or end-use parts requiring
molded-part performance and capable of withstanding harsh environments. (Spec sheet)

DURAFORM FR1200 || A flame-retardant nylon 12 material with high accuracy and excellent surface finish. Ideally suited for direct 3D production in transportation and consumer goods applications where reliable fire retardancy and reduced smoke and toxicity are required. (Spec sheet)

DURAFORM GF || Accurate and repeatable parts that excels in load bearing applications at higher temperatures. (Spec sheet)

DURAFORM HST || A fiber-reinforced material with an ideal mix of stiffness, strength and high temperature resistance. (Spec sheet)  

DURAFORM PA || Nicely balanced mechanical properties and processability with excellent surface resolution and feature detail. (Spec sheet
