Selective laser sintering (SLS) may be among the oldest 3D printing technologies, but it is still widely preferred for quick and cost-effective prototyping. We offer this solution here at HLH Proto. SLS rapid prototyping uses a low-cost yet reliable technology to make industrial-grade functional prototypes and parts from powdered material such as PA 12 (nylon). And because it’s a mature 3D printing process, we are confident about its repeatability and stability. Plus, it can be an alternative to conventional manufacturing methods that may be too time-consuming and costly for one-off projects.
Making SLS prototyping worth your while
With HLH Proto as your manufacturing partner, you can make the most of SLS rapid prototyping and produce high-quality, cost-effective results each time. Apart from using PA 12, we offer glass-filled nylon for projects requiring superior mechanical properties, resistance to chemicals, wear resistance, and thermal stability. This way, it can cater to projects for demanding engineering and industrial applications. Additionally, we can print with aluminum-filled nylon, PA 11 (polyamide 11), and carbon-fiber-filled nylon.
Versatility for any project
HLH Proto can fulfill various prototyping projects with SLS 3D printing, especially where parts have complex geometries and must be functional. Selective laser sintering builds parts one layer at a time by fusing powdered nylon with a high-powered laser, so it achieves challenging designs effortlessly without requiring support. In addition, we can scale the 3D printing process to make one part or more without compromising turnaround time. SLS 3D-printed parts typically have a porous surface, making them ready for post-processing with coloring or dyeing.
Our equipment and expertise in SLS rapid prototyping allow us to complete projects within three to four days. This way, we can speed up your design iterations and time to market. The HLH Proto team can also deliver end-use parts to increase your throughput.
