Selective Laser Sintering

Laser sintering is a popular and versatile 3D printing technology thanks to its high precision, design freedom, and wide range of production-grade materials. Suitable for all stages of the production lifecycle, from prototyping to small series or custom manufacturing, laser-sintered parts need no support structures, making it possible to produce even the most complex geometries.
