World of thermoplastic manufacturing

The New World of Thermoplastic Manufacturing

Perfect for prototypes or end-use manufacturing, selective laser sintering (SLS) is the ultimate 3D printing technology for thermoplastic parts.

A testament to their strength, SLS thermoplastic parts are replacing steel in many applications. Made with 3D Systems’ production-grade materials, including nylons and rugged composites, SLS parts are engineered for the extreme.

A wide range of materials is available to answer even the most demanding applications, with material properties including:

  • Stiff/rigid
  • Flexible/durable
  • Elastomeric/rubber-like
  • High temperature resistance
  • High elongation
  • High impact strength
  • Flame retardant
  • Food grade
  • Medical grade

For a material that holds up against the most brutal of environments, look no further than 3D Systems’ DuraForm HST. With a heat deflection temperature of 184°C (363°F) at 0.45 MPa, this fiber-reinforced material also offers high chemical and abrasion resistance, making it a true under-the-hood wonder. 

Unlock new levels of productivity and capability in product development for unprecedented efficiency and cost-effectiveness in your manufacturing process.  

With SLS, there is no compromise.
