From Sintratec: Morad, a leading distributor of aluminum and glass systems, is one of the first companies in Poland to implement the Sintratec S2 into their production. The modular SLS system is used to develop new products for the construction industry and to respond quickly to unconventional customer needs.
Radiate Engineering & Design GmbH, a start-up, is a composites development service provider that helps companies from the medical technology, sports and leisure, and aviation industries to optimize their value creation and supply chains. The service focuses on the development and implementation of market-ready disruptive solutions in the field of fiber composites.
In the past, producing ingenious grippers involved a great deal of effort. But now, the laser sintering process perfected by Sintratec has suddenly opened the door to completely new solutions and previously undreamed-of possibilities. SLS technology allows the creation of complex objects with an almost unlimited variety of shapes – objects that can also withstand mechanical stress and which are stable over the long term.
The Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Belgrade is home to the first and only 3D laboratory of its kind in Serbia. In the so called “Pharm3D” lab the pharmacists investigate 3D printing of pharmaceuticals with the help of a Sintratec Kit.
A question we often get asked is “How strong are SLS printed parts?”.
One option is to have your Sintratec Kit prints parts out of a nylon (PA12) powder, which is fused together by a laser. This method raises questions of strength, because the printed part is not a solid chunk of nylon. On the flip side, sintered nylon is surprisingly tough and holds detailed features well.
The Sintratec Kit is a compact but mighty desktop SLS printer that can be packed full of parts for printing. Since each layer takes about the same time, whether it's 1 part or 64 parts, it is more effective to utilize as much of the volume as possible. This means you can load up the build chamber to print overnight and it will be ready for cleanup and running the next day.
Many people look at the Sintratec Kit and believe the build volume is too small for their application. It’s true that the recommended 90 x 90 x 110 mm build volume would be too small to print many kinds of tall parts. However, there are still ways to print large parts on the Sintratec Kit!
FabRx is a spin-out company from the University College London that focuses on 3D printing for pharmaceutical uses - and the first group to investigate Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) to make medicine.
Sintratec engineer (and aeromodelling enthusiast) Andi has been working on a 3D printed Racing Drone for quite some time. In this first video he gives insights about the design and building process that lead to his final model. Stay tuned for the follow-up clip when we take the drone to the test outdoors!
