SLS 3D Printing

SLS

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces highly accurate and durable parts that are capable of being used directly in end-use, low-volume production.

Benefits

  • Use of the lasted technology for the highest level of resolution.
  • Nylon has a great strength and flexibility based on design.
  • Rapid turnaround, SLS parts can be completed as soon as next day.
  • SLS can make as little as one unit or be used for small production runs of up to thousands.
  • Intricate geometries can be made without additional cost to print.

Materials

  • Nylon: PA 2200
DMLS 3D Printer

DMLS

Direct Metal Laser Sintering uses metal powders and high watt lasers to create complex parts fast and accurate.

Benefits

  • With no tooling required parts can be built in days rather than weeks or months.
  • DMLS parts are strong, durable, and heat-resistant.
  • Production quality parts can be made.
  • It is possible with DMLS to design internal features and passages that could not be cast or otherwise machined.

Materials

  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless Steel 316L
FDM 3D Printer

FDM

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is a technology used for modeling, prototyping, and production applications.

Benefits

  • Large builds sizes parts can be as large as 36’’ x 24’’ x 36’’
  • FDM printed parts are available in a variety of plastics that can have properties that to be resistant to a variety of elements
  • FDM can be done in a variety of colors

Materials

  • PPSF
  • Ultem
  • ABS
  • ASA
  • PPSF
  • ULTEM9085
Polyjet 3D Printing

Polyjet

PolyJet 3D Printers jet layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray.  PolyJet printing also offers a variety of material finishes such as rubber-like, soft-touch, or even clear parts.

Benefits

  • PolyJet 3D can build different part geometries
  • Create smooth, detailed prototypes that convey final-product aesthetics.
  • Produce accurate molds, jigs, fixtures and other manufacturing tools.
  • Achieve complex shapes, intricate details and delicate features.

Materials

  • Polypro-Like Photopolymer
  • Rigid Photopolymer
  • Rubber-Like Photo polymer

SLA 3D Printing

SLA

Sterolithography (SLA) uses a vat of resin and ultraviolet laser beams to build high resolution parts.

Benefits

  • High resolution parts with fine features.
  • Smooth Finishes.
  • High XY resolution.

Materials

  • White
  • Poly Carbonate Like
  • Poly Carbonate Like with extra sanding
DMLS 3D Printing

Binder Jet

Binder Jetting is where liquid binding agent is selectively deposited to join powder particles.

Benefits

  • Functional metal parts for much less than traditional manufacturing methods.
  • Even less expensive than DMLS process.
  • Can produce end use parts

Materials

  • Stainless steel :
  • Sheet: 420 Stainless Steel
