About Laser Sintering

Laser sintering, also known as selective laser sintering, is an industrial 3D printing technology. This process involves using a high-powered laser to fuse powdered thermoplastics precisely. Our laser sintering team can produce prototypes or parts within three to five days. The parts are then cleaned of excess powder and are ready to be used or can be further refined for a higher level of finishing. 

One of the most significant benefits of laser sintering is its ability to create complex geometric shapes easily. The automated vapor smoothing ensures that the production parts are strong, heat-resistant, air-tight, and water-tight, and easy to replicate. Nylon is the primary material used in selective laser sintering, which allows for the creation of flexible end-use parts and living hinges. It can also be dyed in various colors.

Laser sintering technology can benefit industries such as aerospace and defense, automotive, consumer products, medical and dental, and many more.
