The SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) process is an additive technology which consists in the compaction and transformation, by a laser, of material from powder to solid. Through the sintering of nylon powder, Partec realizes details of good dimensional quality and remarkable mechanical characteristics. For this reason, this type of technology is the ideal solution for projects that need physical properties suitable for the assembling tests: the prototypes made of sintered material are integrated with good elasticity. A sintered model is suitable for various post-process machining, including drilling, threading holes and assembling by hooks (for example snap-fit).
The type of material used in sintering is also suitable for welding: an excellent post-production process to obtain large parts. Partec technicians designs the division of large components for better printing and the gained models could be reassembled with precision. However, through the finishing afetr the realization is possible to hide the joints of these details achieved in cut and welded parts.
