Selective Laser Sintering Equipment Market – Introduction
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a form of Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), in which a base of powder polymer, metal or resin is targeted fully (melting) or partially (sintering) by high-power directional source of heat, like laser. This technique results into the formation of a solid layer of fused powder. Selective laser sintering is a process that is widely in the accelerating additive manufacturing field.
