Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) -
Why produce prototypes using SLS technology?
Good mechanical properties. Parts withstand shocks, strain, aggressive liquids, heat
Parts can be obtained quickly (typically 2-3 days)
Rapid Model Production
Large number of machines ensure even large orders will be produced quickly
High quality, production intent components
From one off components to low volume production runs
Ability to build large or small parts
SLS allows customers to have small, large and even volume parts in a relatively short timescales. Even if the component designed is larger than the SLS machine build chamber, parts can be built in sections then joined, bonded and where necessary re-enforced with glass fibre matting to form a complete structure. The model can then be finished and painted to match specified colours or corporate RAL requirements.
The speed in which these parts can be manufactured provide customers with significant time and cost saving, whilst also allowing them to provide various iterations of the same model. The opportunities that this process offers customers to respond quickly to market needs are significant and a key competitive advantage when bringing products to market.
