The next generation of formula racing

The Formula Student Team FST Lisboa from Portugal makes use of various 3D printing technologies to build next-generation electric and autonomous driving race cars. For their current prototypes, Sintratec has sponsored multiple laser sintered components to the students.

SLS Mask Strap Holder

A medical mask can be painful for the ears, especially when it has to be worn throughout the day in the office or public spaces. That is why we at Sintratec use our own 3D printed mask strap holders, laser sintered with stable PA12 on the Sintratec S2 System.

A laser sintered Orthosis designed by Stephan Henrich

Stephan Henrich has designed a prototype of an orthosis that was subsequently 3D printed on the Sintratec S2 System The part is intended to be worn after a wrist overload or injury when it is still necessary to restrict the mobility of the arm as a protective measure.

Customizing a Mountain Bike with SLS 3D Printing

Sintratec service technician Dario is a passionate mountain bike rider. To optimize his bicycle, he redesigned various components and 3D printed them on the Sintratec S2 system. Once assembled, the parts were successfully put to the test on a downhill trail.

Modifying the Sintratec Blasting Station

Sintratec’s Mechanical Engineer Angelo Bulgheroni designed and 3D printed stable PA12 adapters to mount a suction hose to the Sintratec Blasting Station. Angelo made two different versions and he will explain what they are for and how to mount them to this peripheral system.

Print Your Mind: A wearable Third Hand

To assist him in his daily production work, Sintratec 3D Operator Tomy designed a wearable third hand. 3D printed on the Sintratec S2 System, the part consists of a stable PA12 wrist brace, a flexible TPE strap and various movable tools.

Top 5 Reasons for SLS 3D printing

Have you ever wondered what the key advantages of Selective Laser Sintering are? We produced a video with our top 5 reasons that would make this powder bed technology the ideal choice for your next manufacturing project!

Successful virtual Formnext for Sintratec

In a unique Live-Event Sintratec presents its 3D printing technology closer than ever. From November 10th to the 12th, parts were live printed, depowdered and tested in the in-house experience center of the Swiss start-up. Viewers of the livestream were given an authentic insight into the world of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

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.
