A.What is Selective Laser Sintering (SLS Prototyping)?
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a 3D Printing technology used for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing of 3D parts with complex shapes and geometries.
A wide of range of part sizes is possible with SLS, with a choice of finishing and turnaround options available to suit most requirements.
B.When to Use SLS Rapid Prototyping?
The SLS process can be used to produce parts that closely mimic the properties of finished parts, particularly where high degrees of accuracy are required.
This high level of accuracy makes SLS an ideal choice for all stages of the production process from concept model through to presentation and testing models.
SLS prototype parts are built in successive layers on a base plate in the SLS machine, each of which is then laser fused and shaped to produce a 3D printed part with a range of properties.
The complex shapes achievable via this process means that SLS prototyping is applicable across a range of industry sectors. As well as prototype parts, SLS can also be used to manufacture production parts for use in working models and finished products.
