Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Advantage Engineering SLS

SLS enables tool-less manufacturing that produces durable parts that are great for end-use prototyping.

When you choose SLS, you get fast build times and high-density nesting part production for high throughput production to meet your low-volume production needs.

3D printing with SLS includes self-supporting build methodology to efficiently produce parts with complex geometries.

Why Make Parts with SLS?

  • Get strong and functional parts through an efficient process, reducing post-processing steps.
  • Lower cost per part without sacrificing quality, strength, or productivity.
  • High quality parts with exceptional accuracy, resolution, edge definition and surface finish.
