SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)

SLA (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D Printing services that are accurate, efficient, and cost-effective.

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering )

SLS is an additive manufacturing process that uses a laser-based technology. A computer guided laser beam selectively creates parts by sintering polymer powder particles to bind them together. During the 3D printing process, the SLS machine preheats the powder material that is in the printer bed to just below its melting point and then the laser further raises the temperature of the selected regions to melt and fuse the powder together.

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D Printing Services

In SLS, a laser selectively sinters the particles of a polymer powder, fusing them together and building a part layer-by-layer. The materials used in SLS are thermoplastic polymers that come in a granular form.

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.

SLA 3D Printing Applications

  • Prototypes with good mechanical properties
  • Small parts in limited volumes as end-use parts
  • Spare parts and complicated art forms
  • Lightweight designs
  • Architectural models
  • Low Volume Production
  • Manufacturing prostheses or implants
  • Functional parts can be used for drones, robotics, special machinery, and education.
  • Personalized manufacturing of unique, complex, designs built as one-off products or in small batches

Technical requirements For SLS

Standard Lead time: Minimum 4 working days depending on part size, number of components, and finishing requirements lead time may increase.

Standard Accuracy: ± 0.1%

Layer thickness (resolution): 0.06 mm – 0.15 mm

Minimum Wall thickness: 1mm

Max dimensions: 600mm x 600mm x 600 mm. Large parts can be created by assembling individual parts by interlocking designs or gluing them together.

Surface finishing and Post Processing: Unfinished parts typically have a grainy surface but all kinds of finishes are possible. SLS parts can be sandblasted, smoothed, colored, painted, and coated.
