Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
The SLS process uses a bed of powdered material which is fused a layer at a time by a high power, CO2 laser. The laser ‘draws’ a single layer cross-section of the required part on the surface of the powder bed, accurately creating the part layer and joining it to the layer below.
When each layer has been completed the powder bed lowers and the process is repeated, one layer at a time until the required object is complete. During construction, an object being built by SLS is supported by the surrounding powder – it is possible therefore to build very complex geometries without any need for interfering support structure. In this way the SLS process allows previously impossible shapes to be built.
We have hand picked class leading materials including the very best Carbon Fibre reinforced material. More details can be found here: Graphite-am.co.uk
