SLS Prototypes

sls prototypes

Here at Met-L-Flo, we create Selective Laser Sintering or SLS prototypes. It is an additive manufacturing process which turns your digital designs into 3D objects. SLS prototypes use tiny particles of plastic, glass, metal or ceramic particles that are fused together by heat from the high powered laser, producing your 3D prototype.

SLS is also a great solution for hollow part prototypes. Different from other additive manufacturing processes, SLS builds parts free of support. The particles or powder in fact become the support of the SLS prototype as its construction is being completed. As part of the process, the interior is coated and assists in creating usable tanks and other containers.

For more information on our SLS process and prototyping, call us today at 1-800-MET-L-FLO or simply fill out the form to the right of this page and we will get back to you shortly.

Real World SLS Prototypes

Our SLS prototypes are created and designed to perform in the real world. After your prototype is complete, it is ready for testing for its intended application. SLS also allow you to create end use parts. This makes SLS and ideal process and includes custom prototypes, low-volume production and direct digital manufacturing.

SLS comes with a variety of advantages including:

  • Fast Quote
  • Hollow Prototypes
  • Multiple Finishes Available
  • Special Additive coating for fuel tank applications
  • Ideal for snap fits, living hinges, or high heat applications
  • Multiple filled and unfilled nylon materials available

Affordable SLS Prototypes

At Met-L-Flo, we put a lot of effort into research and development. This helps us streamline our process without compromising the integrity of our prototypes. In doing so this also allows us to give you prototypes at affordable costs.
