SLS ProX 500 DuraForm ProX Brace

Economically manufacture injection molding-grade plastic parts for demanding end-use and functional prototyping applications. The ProX SLS 500 takes the original SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technology to the manufacturing floor. This production system produces ready-to-use functional parts and complete assemblies for a variety of uses in aerospace, automotive, patient-specific medical devices, production tooling and manufacturing applications – without time- and cost- intensive tooling or CNC programming.

Unmatched part quality with uniform properties

In tandem with DuraForm ProX plastic material, the ProX SLS 500 produces a part quality previously unknown for SLS. DuraForm ProX plastic materials have been optimized, validated and tested to ensure uniform part properties, high resolution, edge definition and smooth surface finish. Our customers compare it to injection-molding part quality.

Manufacturing economics

Of every kilogram of material used in a build on the ProX SLS 500, up to 95% (950 grams) is turned into parts. This excellent recyclability and efficiency results in comparably lower part costs. With its automated production tools, powder handling and recycling functions, and mobile production controls, this production printer allow you to streamline your workflow and accelerate your time to part. Production rates are up to 7 times faster than comparable technologies.
