“Underlying material innovation of the laser sintering process”, Presented by Ferdi Verboom, 3DPPM

One of the most pressing limitations for the selective laser sintering (SLS®) process is the shortage of available materials. In this process a laser is used to selectively fuse a powder layer together to create a layer of the product. The pallet of materials available consists of only few materials, of which one material makes up over 95% of the market volume. In his research, Ferdi Verboom analyzed the highly successful material poly(amide-12) to uncover the characteristics of a material suitable for the SLS® process. Next to the properties of the sintering powder, he will also discuss the mechanical performance of laser sintered parts compared to conventionally processed parts.
