RP Platform, a London-based company providing workflow automation software for industrial 3D printing, has released a new white paper that examines the changing role of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology within additive manufacturing. The white paper takes an in-depth look at how SLS has evolved from being a rapid prototyping tool to becoming a viable and effective means of production.
Useful reference tools include a comprehensive summary of industrial SLS machines and materials and how users can get the most out of them; a detailed guide to effective post-processing; instruction on how to choose the best 3D printing software for specific needs and the role of SLS technology in the wider production cycle.
“A huge part of our mission at RP Platform is making the information AM specialists need to deliver the very best for their customers as accessible as possible,” says Keyvan Karimi, Founder and CEO of RP Platform. “This has been one of the key drivers behind the evolution of our software, but we still wanted to do more. We wanted our latest white paper to be an invaluable reference work for anyone working with SLS technology, whether they’re exploring it for the first time, or are already seasoned experts.”
SLS is one of the most widely used technologies in additive manufacturing for developing both prototypes and end-use parts. As the commercialization of AM technology grows, the advantages of SLS as an effective tool for production are becoming increasingly apparent. RP Platform’s white paper covers all stages of the production process, giving you all you need to know about how you can optimise SLS technology for your printing needs. “We’re already planning our next white papers, which will also be available directly through our website,” Karimi continues. “Our hope is that this growing library of quality reference material will encourage companies using AM to explore new technologies and look for new ways to enhance their operations.”
