Laser sintering is a generative, layer-based construction process. The model is constructed via local sintering or melting of layers of powdered material using focused laser radiation. This means that any three-dimensional geometries can be created in 3D printing. With the elastic, neoprene-like material rubber, we at 1zu1 can push the boundaries of what is feasible for you using the SLS process with 3D printing . This greater flexibility provides numerous advantages.

Material

A powdered starting material is fused layer by layer with the aid of a laser to form a three-dimensional geometry. Depending on the exposure power, the elasticity and thus the Shore hardness can be controlled. Subsequent infiltration gives the components their appropriate properties and the selected color.

SHORE hardness, named after Albert Ferdinand Shore, is a measure used primarily for elastomers and rubber-elastic polymers. It is directly related to the penetration depth and is thus a measure of the material hardness. The elasticity additionally depends on the geometry of the plastic part .

Systems

Currently 10 SLS systems are available for plastic parts using different materials. We are continuously investing in new machine technology. On all machines, we can achieve construction layers of a maximum of 100 µm and a wall thickness of up to 0.45 mm. As a result, previously visible layers increasingly disappear; clean and smooth side walls are created, and fine or large parts can be produced with even greater precision. We work with all materials on a daily basis. Our standard lead time is 3 days. Larger dimensions or quantities on request.
