SLS – Selective laser sintering

Rapid manufacturing for functional checks directly from your CAD data.

The quick way to achieve market-readiness: Our laser sintering process produces highly resilient fullfunction prototypes and mini-series with near-series mechanical properties – and an excellent cost/performance ratio. The result: Three-dimensional functional models for test series and design checks.

The procedure: CAD data provides information to a fine laser spot which constructs the model by means of the layered melting of powder thermoplastics. The great practical advantage: Even overhanging structures without support geometries are possible. Large parts that exceed standard construction space sizes are accurately joined at the end of the process using welding technology. This procedure also enables undercuts and complex geometries.
