Perfect for prototypes or end-use manufacturing, selective laser sintering (SLS) is the ultimate 3D printing technology for thermoplastic parts.
A testament to their strength, SLS thermoplastic parts are replacing steel in many applications. Made with 3D Systems’ production-grade materials, including nylons and rugged composites, SLS parts are engineered for the extreme.
A wide range of materials is available to answer even the most demanding applications, with material properties including:
- High temperature resistance
- High elongation
- High impact strength
- Flame retardant
- Food grade
- Medical grade
For a material that holds up against the most brutal of environments, look no further than 3D Systems’ DuraForm HST. With a heat deflection temperature of 184°C (363°F) at 0.45 MPa, this fiber-reinforced material also offers high chemical and abrasion resistance, making it a true under-the-hood wonder.
Unlock new levels of productivity and capability in product development for unprecedented efficiency and cost-effectiveness in your manufacturing process.
With SLS, there is no compromise.
