The ProX SLS 1600 from 3D Systems is a solution based on Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), therefore it works with powder plastics, and is particularly suitable for engineering-grade plastics such as Nylon. You will be able to produce tough, durable parts from a range of DuraForm ProX production-grade nylon materials that have been optimized, validated and tested to ensure quality, with uniform 3D mechanical properties on the ProX SLS 1600.
The manufacturer explains that the ProX SLS 1600 provides faster build times than other SLS printers in its price point, high performance nesting and high density capability for a 25% larger build volume capacity, it delivers production quality parts in a fast and efficient process ensuring: high surface finish, highest resolution and edge definition, high accuracy and repeatability, and uniform part properties.
The types of applications suited for this 3D printing solution include 1) Impact and temperature resistant durable parts, 2) Covers, housings, enclosures
and 3) Jigs and fixtures.
