Sintratec S2 end-use parts 3D printed on the S2
Sintratec trusts in its own technology. This becomes evident when taking a closer look at the latest machine generation: Over 50 end-use parts in the Sintratec S2 are manufactured additively with our technology. Meaning that these components are themselves 3D printed on a Sintratec S2 and then built into a new S2 system, providing functionality and flexibility.
More flexibility for short run production
Selective Laser Sintering (“SLS”) in particular has the advantage that the resulting polymer parts are extremely durable and mechanically resistant. At the same time, SLS is one of the most precise additive technologies which allows objects to be designed with great freedom of form. Therefore, it is not a new concept to include laser sintered components as functional end-use parts into products. The Sintratec Kit, the first Sintratec machine generation and to this day the most affordable SLS option on the market, already includes a custom lens holder that was 3D printed on the machine itself and proved to be a great fit. Regarding the Sintratec S2 it was thus the obvious choice to include the technology again and – like with the system itself – to go a step further.
Over 50 Parts in each System
Rapid production of special components
“With SLS, development cycles are very short and design changes can be implemented within hours.”
