This additive manufacturing technique incorporates the use of a high powered laser. The laser fuses small particles of plastic, metal, ceramic or glass powders into a 3-dimensional mass. Selective laser sintering machines use a CAD file to generate the properties of the object, then selectively fuse the powdered material by scanning cross-sections generated by the CAD data. After each section is scanned the bed of the machine is lowered to apply the next layer. This method of additive manufacturing allows for a wide range of materials as well. Polymers such as nylon, polystrene, steel, titanium, and alloy mixtures can all be used to create the prototype.
Compared to other rapid manufacturing methods, SLS can produce parts from a relatively wide range of commercially available powder materials, including:
polymers (nylon, also glass-filled or with other fillers, and polystyrene)
metals (steel, titanium, alloy mixtures, and composites)
The physical process can be full melting, partial melting, or liquid-phase sintering, and depending on the material, up to 100% density can be achieved with material properties comparable to those from conventional manufacturing methods. In many cases large numbers of parts can be packed within the powder bed, allowing very high productivity.
