Sintratec Offers Fully Integrated SLS System
Users benefit from a complete 3D printing system covering the entire processes from printing to post-processing, the company reports.
January 18, 2019
The new 3D printing system “Sintratec S2” from Swiss 3D printer developer Sintratec is built for scalability. The modular compact system for additive manufacturing is a fully integrated selective laser sintering (SLS) system.
The Sintratec S2 solution offers closed-loop workflow. Users benefit from a complete 3D printing system covering the entire processes from printing to post-processing, the company reports. Inserting ready Sintratec Material Units for the next print job takes only a few seconds. A semi-automatic de-powdering system and two additional modules for post-processing (a sand blasting module and a polishing module) are made to ensure fast finishing work.
The Sintratec S2 is scalable according to the user’s needs. Additional modules can be easily integrated. The solution allows running a wide variety of materials on a production line simultaneously. Users can print prototypes and small series.
From a technology perspective, the Swiss engineers have equipped the Sintratec S2 with a variety of features. For example the cylindrical printing area and the ring lamps guarantee a better heat distribution during the printing process, according to Sintratec. Thanks to a 4K camera the printing process can also be monitored in detail. Ergonomics were also considered: The Material Handling Stations allows a comfortable and efficient unpacking of prints and recycling of printing materials. Easy to access, this module was constructed to be operated at the user’s arm level, Sintratec notes
The intelligent powder recycling concept also is made to increase economic efficiency, the company reports.
