The Universal Selection Source: Plastics & Elastomers

3D Printing

This Channel aims to give technical solutions to optimize your cost and the efficiency of your Rapid Manufacturing and Rapid Prototyping solutions. Rapid prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing processes include selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM), 3-dimensional printing (3DP), and laminated object manufacturing (LOM). Compared to other rapid manufacturing methods, Selective Laser Sintering can produce parts from a relatively wide range of commercially available powder materials, including polymers (nylon, also glass-filled or with other fillers, and polystyrene). While it began as a way to build prototype parts early in the design cycle, Selective Laser Sintering is increasingly being used in limited run manufacturing to produce end-use parts (rapid manufacturing).
