    SLS 3D Printing Technology

    In the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printing technique, a laser at the top scans over the powder lying on the printing area and engraves the cross-sectional image of the object there. When a layer is completed, the powder moves downwards and the blade covers the surface again. The manufacturing process is completed by creating forms layer by layer.

    Selective Laser Sintering technology manufactures products using polymer material. Polyamide 12(PA 12), a nylon derivative, is used as the material. You can get your relatively low-cost parts with strong mechanical properties manufactured for your detailed prototyping or low-volume end-use needs. It is a cost-effective technology, particularly for low-volume mass manufacturing models. We can help you get your functional prototypes in a short time.

    SLS 3D Printing Materials
    • It is the material and technology with the best mechanical properties in terms of strength, rigidity, and strength.
    • It is a suitable material in terms of its price/performance.
    • Thanks to its fast and flexible manufacturing capacity, it is ideal for all prototype and final application areas.
    • It has higher tensile strength and melting temperature compared to the PA12 material.
    • It can be preferred as an alternative to the PA12 material according to its usage area in the projects.
    • It is a more robust and rigid material compared to the PA12 material.
    • It has a harder and more rigid structure.
    Finishing Options

    Different finishing options can be preferred according to the place and situation where the machined piece will be used. Some processes can be applied to make the model smoother, brighter, matte or corrosion-resistant. Some of these processes are listed below.

    Original Surface

    It is delivered as obtained from the machine. The supports and surface burrs are removed. Depending on the technology, traces of layers can be observed.

    Painting (All)

    The painting process in the desired RAL code is performed as obtained from the machine. Surface layer lines are not removed. The desired color tone is provided.

    Post-processing + Painting (All)

    A smooth final product is obtained by post-processing pieces in all technologies. Painting in the desired RAL code is applied. The matte or glossy surfaces can be preferred.

    Advantages & Application Areas of SLS

    Low-cost plastic composites that may contain some metal content may be used in the parts manufactured using SLS 3D printing technology. They can also be used as functional prototypes or end-use parts for testing your injection molding designs that will be used in future manufacturing.

    This additive manufacturing technique allows you easily manufacture your parts that require high temperature and chemical resistance, flexibility, and dimensional stability. Thanks to such strength properties and high dimensional consistency, SLS is used in a wide range of applications, particularly from the aerospace and medical industries to architectural models. It is one of the most cost-effective technologies among the 3D printing technologies that can be used for manufacturing parts in higher numbers of parts.
