    Printers for industrial and professional environments

    3D SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) printing is the most advanced technology at an industrial level. It consists of sintering powder material layer by layer and selectively using a high-power laser for this. The use of powder materials with a very low granulation, together with the high precision of the laser, make it reach very high resolutions.

    SLS printers are mainly focused on the professional and industrial sector. These are printers of high quality, reliability and precision, designed for intensive use. Its main advantage is the possibility of manufacturing completely solid parts with complex shapes without using supports. Depending on the type of material used, there are two types: SLS plastic and metal printers.

    SLS plastic printing

    Plastic SLS printers mainly use polyamide powder, a material widely used at an industrial level due to its good mechanical properties and durability. In addition to polyamide, they can also print with elastic materials such as TPE and TPU. They are mainly distinguished in that they use lower power lasers and shorter wavelengths.

    Plastic SLS printers are ideal equipment for the manufacture of spare parts and tools, components, functional parts, prototypes and short series of products.

    SLS metal printing

    Metal SLS 3D printers are the most advanced industrial 3D printers. They stand out for the use of high power lasers capable of sintering steel, aluminum or titanium powders, among others. The ability to produce components with a high geometric complexity or hollow parts with a very low weight / volume ratio, make it the most widely used 3D printing technology in the aerospace and aeronautical sector.

    In addition, the ability to manufacture complex parts quickly and accurately, as well as to produce porous structures, has made an important gap in the medical sector, especially in the manufacture of prostheses and medical implants.
