Selective Laser Sintering

SLS & SLA


FATHOM’s SLS services are ideal for low-volume production. There is no more cost-effective solution for a short run of parts ranging in quantity from a handful to the low hundreds.

FATHOM often integrates SLS into the product development process when complex geometries, lightweightedness, and low-volume repeatability are key factors.

SLS offers an exceptional combination of high-resolution surface finishes and high-grade functional mechanical properties. Complexity comes free with SLS technology, as highly intricate parts are easy to create within the build envelope.

Often used for snap fits and functional assemblies, SLS supports the creation of parts with geometries that are impossible to produce using traditional manufacturing technologies.

Some industries that consistently integrate SLS into product development are aerospace, medical, automotive, and general manufacturing.
