Trends of the global startups market show that the era of virtual ventures is in the downturn. Now it is time for advanced manufacturing. With that in mind, business owners are looking for reliable and inexpensive tools for prototyping.
Technologies of additive manufacturing known as 3D printing (3DP) are considered to be the future of rapid prototyping, small and even big production lines for industry. There are several technologies distinguished by the phenomena they are based on and materials they are utilising. Reading this article you will learn how SLS 3D printing works and what are the differences between the main 3D printing technologies.
We’re very, very glad to tell you that the readers of 3D Printing Industry nominated our latest printer, Sinterit Lisa Pro for the 3DPI awards 2019 in the category “Desktop non-FFF 3D printer of the year”.
Although positioning the models in the Sinterit Studio is rather not a very complicated process, some of our clients make it an art. Recently, we’ve got some feedback from our German customer Stefan Radau and we were so impressed that we just had to share these images.
We're sharing the recording of our live webinar: How to prepare a perfect design for SLS technology. Konrad Kobus, a mechanical engineer, working in the Research and Development Department at Sinterit, will give you several hints about designing and preparing your models for SLS desktop 3D printer. This knowledge will help you get the most out of this advanced technology.
Sinterit launches the new type of powder for small SLS 3D printers - TPE. It is the first thermoplastic elastomer in the company's offer. TPE shows advantages that are typical for both plastic materials and rubbery materials. On the one hand, it is elastic, with an elongation at break of 196[%], which is a few times more than tested within PA group of materials. But on the other hand, it can be covered with the sealer which makes it watertight and airtight. And this is an entirely new feature.
According to Worldwide Semiannual 3D Printing Spending Guide by IDC “3D printers and materials will account for roughly two-thirds of the worldwide AM spending total, reaching $6.9 billion and $6.7 billion respectively in 2021. Services spending will reach $5.5 billion in 2021. “With this numbers in mind, let’s sum up Formnext 2018, the most significant industry show for additive manufacturing professionals. This year edition was the biggest ever with 632 exhibitors from 32 countries and 26 919 visitors. Sinterit, the manufacturer of SLS 3D printers, was one of them. Paraphrasing the Sinatra song “My kind of town”, we would like to say “Our kind of show”.
