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 […]

Stop the Spread of Germs!

Door handles are among the most contagious places in a building. To help against the current spread of COVID-19, Materialise designed and published a hands-free door opener for the public – and we decided to 3D print it for our office on the Sintratec S2!

Sintratec S2 – the ideal response to special market needs

Morad, a leading distributor of aluminum and glass systems, is one of the first companies in Poland to implement the Sintratec S2 into their production. The modular SLS system is used to develop new products for the construction industry and to respond quickly to unconventional customer needs.

Sintratec now also represented in the Benelux region

Sintratec is strengthening its presence in Western Europe. Thanks to the new partnership with the industrial specialist Bender AM from the Netherlands, the Swiss manufacturer of compact SLS systems is now well represented in the Benelux region.
