Swiss 3D printer manufacturer Sintratec signed L.corporation as a distributor for South Korea. Sintratec’s compact SLS 3D printers are now being sold in the world’s 8th largest market for 3D printing.
Among others, the 3D printing specialist from Seongnam, Korea, that operates through its 3Developer brand, has been successfully distributing FDM and SLA machines from Formlabs and Ultimaker for several years. With the Sintratec Kit and the Sintratec S1, L.corporation is now introducing SLS machines into its product portfolio for the first time and intends to develop the SLS market in South Korea from the bottom up.
“The SLS market in South Korea is still underdeveloped compared to the FDM and SLA markets. In the industrial sector, the SLS market is dominated by EOS. However, the demand for 3D printers in the Korean industry is still below its potential as the necessary skills are lacking. Sintratec’s entry-level models are exactly what they need”, says Junwhan Lim, CEO of L.corporation.
Sintratec’s current offer includes compact laser sintering systems which process high-quality polymers. Sintratec’s laser sintering technology allows the production of complex and freeform objects which meet demanding part resolution, robustness and temperature standards. Several hundreds of professional Sintratec machines are in operation around the world in various industries, universities and research institutes.
“Our compact SLS systems are perfect for the cost-effective entry into SLS technology. The machines are easy to handle, run on regular power and do not require inert gas. With the Sintratec Kit, the self-assembly also familiarizes the user with the complete machine and the SLS technology. And the best part is that the quality of the sintered components is comparable to large, expensive SLS machines”, explains Christian von Burg, CTO at Sintratec.
