Selective laser sintering (SLS) machines are capable of using a variety of materials, so they can be useful in a variety of metalcasting facilities.
SLS machines also can produce many parts simultaneously, so facilities that anticipate producing higher numbers of one type of prototype may want to go this route.
Specific applications for the SLS 6000 in the rubber and tire industry include quality inspection and production control; dimensional thickness and cross-sectional profiles of on-and-off line extruded products such as tire treads and sidewalls; on-line thickness of green rubber and calendered rubber sheets; splice width measurement and overlap; tire behavior versus speed; finished tire bulge and dent monitoring in sidewall inspection; endurance capability; measuring tire deflection versus load; measuring round-out: etc.
API, for example, uses both SLA and SLS machines to produce functional prototypes.
SLS differs from powder metallurgy in that it does not require dies to press the powder into the part's shape before sintering.
