Small-scale production of complicated components and prototypes

With the SLS technique, spatial structures made of powdered plastic using laser beams can be manufactured through sintering in one processing step. Compared to other 3D printing processes, SLS has distinct benefits with regard to the quality and mechanical strength of the components as well as the reproducibility, says Röchling.The company is focussing on small-scale production of components, which could not be realised with the technologies available so far, such as CNC machining or injection moulding. In addition, Röchling offers the production of prototypes. This enables adaptations to the design or functional tests to be performed relatively inexpensively.
