SLS—Selective Laser Sintering

Met-L-Flo 3D Printing Services

Need a custom prototype that allows for functional testing or a sample tank to withstand fuel storage? Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a great choice for low volume production and direct digital manufacturing. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a trademarked process that ASTM F42 defines as Laser Sintering (LS) which falls under the category of Powder Bed Fusion. The Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) process melts a powder resin with a laser to build parts layer by layer. Multiple Nylon powder options allow the durability, flexibility and functionality of the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) process to really shine.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is also a great solution for hollow parts. Unlike other additive processes, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) parts build support free. The powder resin becomes a natural support which is simply shaken out of the interior. Met-L-Flo, Inc. can then coat the interior to create useable tanks and other containers. Selective Laser Sintered (SLS) parts perform well in real world testing, Including FEA, heat and chemical resistance evaluations.
