Stereolithography (SLA), Powder Sintering (SLS), Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) !
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
Very high quality parts are manufactured layer by layer (30 µm) in steel, titanium, aluminum, stainless steel or Inconel materials. Possible post operations : polishing, machining, welding, heat treatment, surface treatment etc.
Applications : Parts with complex geometries that would be difficult or even impossible to manufacture with “traditional” manufacturing tools.
Powder Sintering (SLS)
Sintered parts are manufactured by using successive layers of polyamide powder. It is a laser that scans and polymerises the various sections of the part.
Applications : functional prototypes with high thermal and mechanical resistance.
Stereolithography, high resolution 3D printer
Exceptionally fine details and smooth surfaces. High accuracy : 16µm layers, multi-material technology : rigid, rubber-like, transparent, high temperature, biocompatible.
Applications : technical parts with thin walls. Excellent surface quality
