SLS Printing Services

Exceptional selective laser sintering results

What is SLS Printing?

The use of SLS 3D Printing allows MNL to automatically build functional parts, casting patterns and tooling inserts from your 3D CAD data. Our HiQ Sinterstation system (SLS 3D Printing machine) represents the future of Instant Manufacturing Technology. SLS or Selective Laser Sintering directly produces end-use plastic or metal parts, tooling inserts, or casting patterns from your 3D CAD data files. Eliminate the need for machining, tooling, casting or other secondary processes — saving you time and money.

“SLS Rapid Prototyping for functional high-strength components – without the need for tooling”

SLS 3D Printing Applications

  • Nylon: Superior Finish Innov’PA 1550
  • Test your first off rapid prototype without the fear of breakage
  • Acts like moulded components, strong and durable
  • Excellent for fit and function. Ideal for clip features, hinges and snap-fit connections
  • Build more complex structures than SLA as no supports are required
  • High chemical resistance. High-Temperature resistance
  • Durable patterns for sand casting
  • Superior surface, straight from machine, compared to … Duraform PA, GF, EX or EOS PA2200, or PA320

SLS Rapid Prototyping Benefits

  • Built from successive layers, SLS prototype parts are laser fused to produce a 3D product with an exceptional range of properties
  • High strength and rigidity
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Functional, high-quality plastic parts
  • Stable over long periods of time
  • Moveable parts abrasion resistance
  • High resolution and selectivity
  • High chemical resistance
  • Food contact compliant
  • Medical application appropriate
  • Please get in touch for details of compliance with regulatory requirements.

SLS Models and Projects
