SLS – Selective Laser Sintering is the 3D printing technology being the greatest of all available solutions, incremental production capacity.

The SLS method enables to print a few 3D parts, models or ready products simultaneously.

Lack of necessity to use the supports make that the printed models do not require later processing and can be used as the final product after 3D printing.

Due to this advantage, designers and engineers may project the models of complicated geometry without the need of special adjusting of the model to 3D printing process.

The process of 3D printing in the SLS technology relies on the selective etching of cross section of the produced model in the layer of polyamide powder carried by the device. This process is repeated until the height of 3D printing refers to the height of printed object.

After the accomplished process of the additive printing, material not being burnt by the laser is used by the industrial vacuum cleaner and the produced parts are cleaned manually. Unburned material is recovered and after mixing it, in the appropriate amounts, with the material not being processed thermally, it can be used again, therefore SLS technology is considered as highly economical.

Summing up, the pros of technology include:

  • The possibility of creating the complicated geometry of objects.
  • Creating the objects of the functional materials.
  • The possibility of small-volume production of a few objects at the same time.
  • Ecological.
  • Pace.
  • High quality of produced objects.
  • The possibility of high details printing.

FDM – Fused Deposition Modelling is one of the most popular and more recognizable technologies of 3D printing.

It owes its popularity mainly to the possibility of observing the object creating process on the device working platform.

In this technology, model is created by the layers of melted material being put one after another by the nozzle, which is delivered to the device as the strand on the roll.

The process of 3D printing in case of devices of FDM type requires the use of supporting material in places where the tilt angle of object exceeds the possibility of non-supporting material lying.

The used supportive material can be sundered or panned which allows to achieve complicated geometry of objects.

The pros of technology include:

Usage of materials being commonly used in the injection moulding, high repetitiveness of created parts and uncomplicated post-production processes. The parts can be successfully used as the functional applications of devices and installations.

Summing up, the pros of technology include:

  • Functional materials.
  • Working chamber of 254mmx254mmx305mm.
  • Panned supporting material.
  • Fast realization time within 3-5 working days.

Polyjet Technology depends on hardening of the photosensitive photopolymer with the UV beam. In Polyjet technology, the liquid photopolymer injected on the model through the nozzle and then hardened with the UV light.

This way enables us to use multiple materials simultaneously and mix materials of the same properties.

As the effect, due to Polyjet technology we can achieve complicated geometries applying the supportive panned material, as well as the rigid and flexible or even transparent elements.

It is the perfect method of prototyping, which we may use to print as the whole the products keeping their appropriate hardness values of material even if they vary in different elements of the same model.

Moreover, the Polyjet technology is very precise and the hardened photopolymer is much smoother than the models produced with other methods.

Summing up, the pros of technology include:

  • High precision of models. Precision in z-axis equals even 0,017mm.
  • Working chamber of size of 490mmx390mmx200mm.
  • Panned supporting materials.
  • The possibility of mixing materials to obtain specific parameters in the produced parts.
  • Excellent in prototyping.
  • Quick realization time within 3-5 working days.
