Sinterit Lisa 2 Expands Build Volume, Material Options for Desktop SLS
The desktop selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printer features an expanded, nitrogen-filled build chamber to support larger parts in more materials.
Sinterit introduces the Sinterit Lisa 2, an selective laser sintering (SLS) desktop 3D printer larger than its previous Lisa 1 model. The 3D printer is capable of manufacturing high-precision, complex parts ranging to 32 cm (12.6"), without the need for supports.
A nitrogen build chamber supports the use of a greater range of materials, including strong and chemical-resistant plastics such as Nylon PA12 and Flexa Black, a TPU material for rubber-like applications. With the Lisa 2, the company is also introducing Flexa Grey with better flexibility and PA11 with chemical and temperature resistance.
Hardware enhancements support more reliable printing, while the Sinterit Studio 2018 software offers maximized automation and better user experience for all processes, the company says.
Used with the Sinterit Sandblaster and Sieve, the Lisa 2 can be an end-to-end system for product development and production. The printer is suitable for prototypes and functional parts in industries such as automotive, electronics, robotics, plastics and medical. Applications include turbines, pipes, electrical housings, tool handles, seals and more.
Boyce Technologies was already a leader in manufacturing communications devices, but 3D printing and a partnership with BigRep have helped it remain competitive—first through prototyping, and now in production.
