Sintratec supports construction of the first Swiss Supersonic Rocket

A Swiss student project is shooting for the stars: As part of the student association for space, the team of project EULER is building the first supersonic rocket of Switzerland. For their construction, the students also make use 3D printing technologies such as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

Shaping the future of mobility with 3D printing

ETHEC city is a Swiss student project that aims to radically change the mobility of tomorrow with the technologies of today. To face the challenges of climate change and sustainability, the team develops an electric motorcycle with an ingenious two-wheel drive that saves energy and improves the range.

3D printing the entire Sintratec S2 volume

Our Technical Lead Engineer Stefan Noser was always fascinated by 3D printed organic shapes. To illustrate the maximum printable volume of our Sintratec S2 system he decided to redesign the build cylinder with a voronoi structure. Watch the video to see how much parts you can produce with just a single print job!

Stay cool during the summer with Selective Laser Sintering

It is burning hot in Europe and we like to keep a cool head with SLS – for instance with these 3D printed Sintratec Beer Cap Openers. We wish you a nice rest of the summer! (Disclaimer: The beverage shown in this clip is purely fictional and not for sale.)

Printable Vacuum Cleaner Nozzle

Sintratec Mechanical Engineer Angelo Bulgheroni designed a printable nozzle for the Sintratec vacuum cleaning solution, thus making depowdering of smaller parts easier than ever. The STL file is available to download for everyone.

Print Your Mind: The reconstruction of an Allosaurus

We had the chance to 3D print the scientific reconstruction of an Allosaurus. The model illustrates the benefits of Selective Laser Sintering particularly well: Not only is this large print extremely detailed, but also consists of just 4 main parts (torso, legs, and tail) which were printed in a single shot on the Sintratec S2.

“PoseidonTap” – a Student Project for the Future

In an interdisciplinary course the team around mechanical engineering student Eric Hayoz developed a multifunctional tap attachment. To be able to construct the prototype in a timely manner, the students also made use of the SLS technology.

Anti Touch Keychain Tool

Designer Stephan Friedrich created an Anti Touch Keychain Tool against the COVID-19 pandemic – we 3D printed it on the Sintratec S2 system and our team uses it daily to open public doors or to type in credit card pins.

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 […]

Supporting medical care during the COVID-19 crisis

Materia Srl from Italy successfully uses the Sintratec S2 3D printing system in the fight against the coronavirus. With 3D-printed adapters, diving masks can be transformed into respiratory devices, thus significantly helping to relieve regional hospitals. Sintratec supports these efforts as far as possible and provides the company with the necessary printing material free of […]
