Laser Sintering Finishing

Parts in days anywhere in the USA.

Regarding laser sintering parts, it’s important to remember that every surface is a canvas waiting to be refined. The level of finishing required for each project will depend on various factors, including the material used, the application of the part, and the post-processing techniques to be used. Each project can stand out whether it requires low to medium-level finishing, such as cleaning or tumbling, or high-level finishing, such as painting or plating. Remember, the level of finishing required will impact both the cost and production time of the project, so take the time to consider every detail carefully.

Choosing the right laser sintering finishing level for your project.

Consider your needs when choosing the right laser sintering finishing level. A higher level is necessary for precision and detail, while a lower level is more suitable for functional projects. The cost and time constraints must also be evaluated, as higher finishing levels will be more expensive and time-consuming. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask one of our Solutions Managers.
