While the manufacturer Nexa3D is perhaps best known for its resin 3D printers – whether office or industrial machines – it has also developed a solution for industrial production that uses selective laser sintering (SLS). The QLS 820 is an SLS 3D printer that is compatible with a wide variety of plastics including but not limited to PA12, PA11, polypropylene or even glass fiber filled composites.
Features of the QLS 820 3D Printer
This SLS solution is equipped with 4 lasers and a print volume of 350 x 350 x 400 mm. In terms of speed of the machine, Nexa3D claims that it has a throughput that is 4 times higher than other competing machines on the market, allowing any user to improve their productivity. The 3D printer has a removable manufacturing unit and an automated post-processing solution. This will allow industry professionals to mass produce plastic parts.
The QLS 820 also features an open-source platform to expand the range of compatible materials – it can handle processing temperatures up to 240°C. Finally, the 3D printer is equipped with a modular material processing station (MMPS) that allows you to adapt your operations according to your needs. You can thus better manage the mixing of powders, their recovery or their sieving. It will be ideal for designing parts in the automotive, consumer goods, aerospace or medical industries.
