Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), often called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), the component is built up in layers in a powder bed using a laser beam that passes over the cross-section of the layer to locally melt the powder. In order to characterize a polymer powder for its suitability for SLS and to determine the possible process window, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is used. Learn how to set up and interpret the measurements!
This festive season of the year is for many the season for baking cookies and biscuits. But then, we have to decide: parchment paper or silicone baking mat? Today, we are answering the question if the two options are safe to use.
Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), often called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), is one of the most used Additive Manufacturing technologies to produce structural plastic parts. In this article, we explain the process principle and materials used in the SLS process.
