On-Demand SLS 3D Printing
SLS technology is among the most trusted and popular additive manufacturing choices for engineers. With higher productivity, wide material selection, and low-cost production, SLS is an industrial 3d printing method. KARV Automation is a leading on-demand manufacturing company that offers full-fledged SLS services to meet your every product goal.
What is SLS 3D Printing Technology?
Compared to other technologies like SLA, FDM, SLS additive manufacturing doesn’t require any support structure. Instead, the powder acts as a self-supporting component that makes it possible for engineers to create complex geometries in a shorter turnaround.
Why Choose SLS 3D Printing Technology?
Design FlexibilityAn SLS 3d printer doesn’t require any support structure, and it makes it easier for engineers to draft a more flexible design. Be it moving parts or interlocking mechanisms, the design freedom of SLS is unmatchable to many other methods.

SLS in 3d printing is ideal for creating high-performance functional and durable prototypes and end-use parts. SLS 3d printer’s lasers offer much faster speeds and are more accurate than the layer deposition mechanism. Thus, it allows engineers to build complex parts in a shorter turnaround time productively.
Industry-Grade Quality MaterialsSLS technology supports high-quality durable materials like PEBA 2301, Nylon PA3200 that offer superior strength and resistance to extreme temperatures. It’s ideal for both creating prototypes and mass manufacturing end products.
What is Selective Laser Sintering Used For?
- For creating durable prototype and production parts
- Ideal for functional proof-of-concept
- Aerospace parts and ducting
- For creating jigs and fixtures
- For casting patterns
SLS 3D Printing Materials
- Flexible PEBA 2301 Plastics
- Glass Filled Nylon PA3200
- PA 11
How SLS 3D Printing Works
Designing CAD FileThe process starts with creating a product design. Once the design is ready, it’s exported into a 3d CAD file either in STL or OBJ. Next, the 3d file goes into slicing software to slice the design and make it readable to the 3d printer.
Printing ProcessThe SLS printer scatters the material powder in a thin layer, and the printer preheats the powder near its melting temperature. Next, the printer’s laser fuses the powder particles to form a solid base, and the platform gets lower to build a new layer. This process continues until the design is completed.

Post-ProcessingAs this process doesn’t require structural support, the post-processing becomes faster, and the materials can also be reused.
Why Choose SLS?
Support-Free FunctioningSLS 3d printing doesn’t require additional support to execute printing jobs regardless of geometric complexities.
Mass ProductionThis technology can print hundreds and even thousands of parts in a single print job, making it more efficient for multiple industries.
