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.

Taking student rocketry to new heights

With their hybrid rocket, student project PICCARD reaches an altitude of over 6 kilometers and sets a new world record. For the construction of their winning rocket, the team relied on various 3D printing technologies such as Selective Laser Sintering.

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.

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.

Meeting the Pioneer of Additive Design

He sets chairs, tables and chandeliers in motion. Robotics, design and architecture are closely interwoven in his prototypes, studies and products. Stephan Henrich uses additive manufacturing as a pioneering design tool for furniture, objects and installations.

SLS supports research on hybrid materials

The Hybrid Materials Laboratory at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) is developing new composite materials. In addition to a wide range of production and analytical equipment, the Ticino researchers also make use of a Sintratec Kit.

3D Prints for Skateboards or Quadcopters

The HTL Dornbirn places importance on modern additive manufacturing methods not only in terms of understanding but also of applying. In order that the students are ready for their career start and technologically up to date, the Austrian vocational school uses Sintratec technology.
