Applications of Selective Laser Sintering 3D Printing

Selective Laser Sintering is one of the main 3D printing technologies used and has dominated rapid prototyping and low number manufacturing for decades.

It is known for the process of using polymer powders and a high power laser cured layer by layer to form a 3D printed object. SLS is popular for its capability to produce a strong functional parts with complex geometries without the need of any support. It provides a high level of accuracy without doing any post-processing.

Now let's take a look on its different application:

1. Automotive and mechanical

The variety of materials and versatility of SLS makes it a perfect technology both for producing prototypes and final parts.
2. Electronics

Selective Laser Sintering is widely used in electronics industry. Thanks to the choice of materials, as in the example below, it can be used for stiff and elastic elements.

3. Medicine

The freedom of shape and no need of using support structures makes SLS a perfect choice for medical applications, such as pre-surgical training model or prototyping medical devices.

4. Fashion and art

There are six materials in Sinterit’s offer and we are constantly working to extend the offer. You can choose from powders soft almost like fabric through wearable TPE to hard and stiff materials such as PA12 Smooth or PA11 Onyx.


Now, you can think of how Selective Laser Sintering can help you and your business. You’re now able to decide what material and what application you would use this technology.
