Using Selective Laser Sintering for Healthcare Applications

The latest newsletter from Access Laser discusses applications of the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) method of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for the healthcare industry. SLS uses a bed of small plastic, glass or ceramic particles and a laser to fuse those beads together into layers of solid material forming 3-dimensional objects. This process is an ideal … Continue reading
