Being familiar with how selective laser sintering shortens lead times can help you get outstanding results. Does SLS easily meet requirements without later steps? Yes! However, the project should be managed by an expert like ARRK Asia.
The expertise and ability of ARRK Asia’s team can make the most of the advantages of Selective Laser Sintering for developing prototypes. Their expertise has already made an impact in multiple industries and companies.
Reduce manufacturing lead times with Selective Laser Sintering
Quicker Design Iteration
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) enables quick turnaround of design changes and improves the speed to market for product development. With SLS 3D Printing, manufacturers can quickly create physical parts, reducing prototyping and design iterations, and shortening lead times.
Reduced Raw Material Waste
As a 3D Printing technique with no physical support structures needed—allowing complete geometries to be printed—SLS can cut down raw material waste and the time necessary to clear up production. This helps customers save money while also reducing their environmental impact.
Easier Manufacturing Process
With increased speed and less waste comes an easier manufacturing process. One that allows companies to produce functional parts faster during the entire process. As a result, overall costs are reduced, and energy efficiency is increased since fewer resources are required for industrial production.
Excluding the machining process can shorten production times
Streamlined Tooling Production
Injection Molding or sheet metal punching require tooling, which adds more costs to the whole process; however, SLS 3D Printing solutions can give our customers optimized delivery time. The advantage is that they don’t need to make multiple components.
Laser Sintering Speeds up Design Process
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) can dramatically reduce lead times by allowing parts to be produced directly from a CAD file without a machining or casting process. This makes it easy to prototype and iterate designs quickly before committing to high-volume productions.
A few more SLS benefits
Improved Budget Planning
Since SLS allows shortening manufacturing lead times, companies can better plan in terms of budget. Helping a smooth administrative flow due to increasing certainty over their manufacturing costs throughout product life cycle stages, such as paperwork filing, production processing, delivery tracking, etc. Also, according to their timelines, they have time to solve issues without fear of exceedance or inflation due to unexpected delays or misjudgment of expected turnaround times with conventional production methods.
Increased Productivity Levels
Diminished lead times from one production stage directly leads to shorter prototyping cycles, often allowing customers to minimize overhead costs. In addition, this allows for a higher volume of continuous productive output, optimizing their return rate efficiently.
