From prototypes to cutting-edge shears

At INFACO the next generation hand power tools for agriculture are designed and manufactured. To speed up product development, the French company relies on modern technologies like Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

Bringing production up to speed with SLS

At the ‘Atelier Gorge de Loup’ in Lyon, students undergo hands-on training for technical professions. To respond better to their client’s needs, Denis Brude and his team are also including modern 3D printing equipment like the Sintratec S2 into their workshop.

Building a rear rack for a suspension bike

Development engineer Peter Kümmerli is a true expert when it comes to combining SLS parts with other materials and turning them into real life solutions. In a recent project he constructed a custom rear carrier and side stand for an electric suspension bike.

Advancing glass processing with 3D printing

At LiSEC – a manufacturer of flat glass processing machinery – components, spare parts and prototypes are produced using 3D printing. For one year, the team of Benjamin Kaubeck has also been using a Swiss system to this end: the Sintratec S2.

The “Earth Moc” shoe concept by Daniel Shirley

Performance Footwear Designer Daniel Shirley created the “Earth Moc concept”, a recovery shoe for light hiking. Inspired by intertwining roots and vines, the single material shoe was 3D printed on the Sintratec S2 system  with flexible TPE. In the video, the designer shares his thoughts and challenges.

Taking student rocketry to new heights
