One is known as one of the top companies that develops and commercializes SLS 3D printing machines, the other is one of the largest 3D printing companies that develops materials for several AM technologies. Together, they will work on the development of new materials and hardware, and explore industrial applications that can be achieved using SLS 3D printing. These companies are Sinterit and Forward AM.
According to Sinterit, this collaboration is due to the growth of SLS 3D printing technology, especially the compact segment. The compact segment was a missing link between costly, but professional SLS technology, and less precise technologies available for small and medium-sized companies, Sinterit said.
While the Polish manufacturer was investing extra miles to build that segment, it also developed a 3D printer for industrial applications: NILS 480. With a printing volume of 200 x 200 x 330 mm, the SLS 3D printer is designed for companies that are looking for ROI and flexibility.
A cooperation that focuses on plug&play system solutions
“A prerequisite for a large increase in the potential of this technology is new applications that can be opened by materials. In cooperation with BASF Forward AM materials, Sinterit will introduce work-ready materials with the Lisa and NILS lines”, says Konrad Głowacki, Sinterit cofounder responsible for Product Management.
The cooperation with a key player in the compact SLS segment is the implementation of Forward AM’s long-term strategy related to drive the industrialization of Additive Manufacturing.Forward AM invests in research and development, as well as in business development of the industrial and functional application of 3D printing. Together with numerous specialist industry partners, new materials, integrated system solutions and service offers are developed continually.
“Entering the partnership with Sinterit allows us to make our high-performance materials even more accessible. The combination of Sinterit’s hardware and our SLS powders will enable customers to realize new industrial applications in reliable high quality. This step contributes to the continuous industrialization of Additive Manufacturing”, says Stefan Josupeit, Head of Business Line Powder Bed Fusion, BASF 3D Printing Solutions.
