Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Ultra-Strong Tooling and End-use Parts with Isotropic Mechanical Properties

Selective Laser Sintering technology offers fully functional prototypes with strong mechanical properties and good thermal resistance.

Parts produced with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology can rival injection-molded and machined plastic parts, with excellent mechanical properties and chemical resistance. SLS is an extremely versatile method that can work for a huge variety of materials, from very stiff to flexible. Because there’s no need for support structures, SLS printing is a good choice for producing very complex geometries.

SLS is commonly used for functional prototypes, tooling, fixtures, design evaluation models, small manufacturing runs, and product testing. SLS parts have been flight-certified and are being used today in civil and military aircraft around the world.

Advantages of SLS technology include:

  • Wide variety of materials with different strengths and durometers
  • Batch production of nested parts is an extremely efficient process
  • Complex geometries with very small detail and no supports
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Excellent strength and stiffness
  • Can be smoothed, bonded, colored, painted and metallized
  • Very delicate parts with thin narrow features can be produced
