This July, Sinterit, a leading manufacturer of desktop SLS 3D printers (Lisa, Lisa PRO), has begun operations at its newly-launched 3D Printing Center. The company states that the center has been launched, not to compete with other renowned 3D printing centers, but to expand their services to address an increasing number of queries from customers interested in SLS parts and 3D printers.

Explaining this latest move, Sinterit CEO Maxime Polesello said, “In Sinterit we observe that more and more companies are looking into SLS 3D printing technology. Small SLS is still an emerging branch of additive manufacturing with not too many players. Until now companies or individuals who would like to test this advanced technology had two options: to send files to one of the service centers or to directly send these to the printer manufacturer. We are just making the second option more convenient and user-centric.”

The company’s service center website states, “We decided to start a service center to give access to this amazing 3D printing technology to those who, for some reasons, can’t buy a 3D printer at the moment. And for those wanting to test the SLS solution in a long distance use, before deciding to buy.”

The company identified that in supporting the evaluation and purchase of their industrial SLS 3D printers, obtaining a free sample or printing a benchmark part using the OEM’s 3D printers was a key factor in influencing a customers’ purchase decision.

Earlier in March this year, after five year since launch, the company moved into new headquarters and a much larger production facility outside the city, in the industrial zone of Krakow, to manage capacity expansion and business growth. With the new facility, Sinterit’s production capacity has tripled. The firm now provides a range of materials, and an end-to-end cost-effective SLS solution (including sandblasting machines, cyclone separator, vacuum cleaner and other peripherals). Its latest update regarding the optimization of their PA12 powder claims a 26% refresh ratio, the lowest yet in the industry and possibly the next milestone for competition. In SLS, lower powder refresh ratio’s directly impact ROI, and the lower the ratio, the better the ROI and the more cost-efficient the process is.

With its cost-effective, industrial quality desktop SLS printers, its end-to-end services, and improvements in material usage, Sinterit has achieved significant advances in lowering the cost of SLS 3D printing in all three, equipment, service and materials. In April this year, in addition to ensuring its systems are compatible with Industry 4.0 standards, the company, as have several other 3D printing OEMs, contributed to the pandemic mitigation effort by printing 4000 face shields (and face shield connectors) at its facilities in Poland, and collaborated with PrintPlace and Maggy (a wearable to support social distancing) to develop wearable devices.
