Market Definition: Global Selective Laser Sintering Equipment Market
The selective laser sintering equipment is an additive manufacturing technology which is equipped with laser to sinter powdered plastic material into a 3D model based in solid structure. It uses a high-energy laser beam to fuse particle granules directly into complex. It is a thermal energy which selectively fuses region of a powder bed. The two important common powder beds are plastic bed- commonly known as SLS and metal based- commonly known as DMLS (Direct metal laser sintering). Moreover, selective laser sintering equipment is used in 3D printing technologies which enhances and prevents the design from collapsing during production, manufacturing for aerospace hardware, electronics, packaging, connectors and homeland security.
In 2015, 3D Systems and Philips Corporation launched a 3D design to print product for U.S. General Service administration, which is beneficial for inventory controls, cloud based manufacturing services and sustainability.
In 2016, EOS GmbH launched a direct metal laser sintering which is highly applicable in industrial systems and power generation technologies.
