Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing process that belongs to the powder bed fusion family. In SLS 3D printing , 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.
SLS technology produces tough and durable parts that excel in high-performance prototyping and end-use applications. SLS uses production-grade nylon materials, resulting in durable, functional parts that last. In fact, SLS printed parts rival other parts produced using traditional manufacturing methods. The robustness of SLS makes this technology great for:
