Selective Laser Sintering

Our suite of polymer additive manufacturing (Selective Laser Sintering [SLS]) machines include some of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced, meaning we are perfectly placed to meet our customers’ requirements.




Market Leaders in laser-based additive manufacturing technologies, EOS’s system, materials and process parameters are intelligently harmonised to ensure a reliable, high quality of parts. Our suite of EOS laser sintering machines is one of the largest in the UK.

Our 3D printers have the capacity to combine enhanced productivity with exceptional quality, in the shortest lead times possible. The P700 series of polymer AM Machines give us the ability to build large parts up to 700mm X 380mm X 580mm (1000mm when diagonally orientated).

All materials offered on these systems are powder based, meaning we can build very complex geometries with no support structure.

This makes this process ideal for the production of components which cannot be manufactured using traditional technologies such as injection moulding or machining.

We have a range of processes available to finish SLS parts. These include, colouring, painting, plating, adding tappex inserts, and many more custom finishes. Just let our sales team know what you need.

The largest part we can make in one piece is approximately, 700x380x580mm, however, we can make larger parts and weld them back together.

  • Minimum wall thickness of 1mm
  • Minimum hole diameter 2mm
  • Maximum wall thickness of 5mm-10mm (hollowing required on thicker parts)
  • Try where possible to avoid large flat panels
  • Avoid draft angles (draft angles= layer steps in part)
  • For moving/ intersecting parts, ensure clearance of at least 0.3mm (subject to geometry)

Nylon 12 is suitable for the majority of prototyping and production parts made using SLS technology. Our other nylons have specific applications for toughness or flame-retardant properties, but when those are not required, nylon 12 is recommended.
