EOS FORMIGA P100

The technology:

 
 

Successive powder layers are spread on top of each other. After deposition, a computer-controlled CO2 laser beam selectively binds together the powder particles of the corresponding cross section of the product. During laser exposure, the powder temperature rises above the glass transition point after which adjacent particles flow together.

Applications:

  • Fully functional prototypes with mechanical properties comparable to those of injection moulded PA12 parts
  • Series of small components as a cost-effective alternative to injection moulding
  • Production of unique, complex, personalized designs built as once-only products or in small batches.

Some good reasons to choose Laser Sintering:

  • Durable and functional large and complex parts
  • Direct production of low volume projects
  • Design freedom (no support structure necessary)
  • Wide range of finishing degrees and additionally can be sealed watertight
