SLS prototyping for complex models and end-use parts

Selective Laser Sintering

JR Prototypes uses Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) equipment to create complex models and parts.

Key benefits of our SLS prototyping:

  • Creates highly detailed models
  • Produces multi-piece, integrated structures
  • Makes flexible parts with live hinges
  • Produces lightweight end-use parts
  • Offers build sizes up to 13" x 15" x 18"
    • tolerances of +/- .005 for the first inch and +/-.003 for each additional inch

How Does SLS Prototyping Work?

SLS prototyping uses a high-power laser to fuse powdered plastic into a desired shape. A cross-section of a 3-D digital description is scanned, the powder bed is lowered, and the process is repeated until the part is completed.
