Sinterit Lisa X demonstration suite now open
Sinterit have recently launched two new SLS 3D printers. Lisa X became the fastest and biggest compact printer in the company’s range, whilst the NILS 480 is the first industrial-grade model. The Lisa X SLS 3D printer is now with the UK, fully commission for demonstrations and benchmarks, situated in our showroom in Alton, Hants.
The highlights for the new Lisa X include:-
- 30W laser, so more powerful
- Glavo, so much faster
- Rounded corners for ease of cleaning
- Large build volume, up to 330mm part size
- PHS powder handling station
- Improved PA12 material for better part quality
At the same time, reinventing the powder handling system PHS was required. The growing demand for faster SLS 3D printers, the Lisa X and Nils 480 challenged Sinterit to launch a new version of the popular PHS. With the tremendous increase in powder volume that could be printed at once, the postprocessing and powder handling with new, faster PHS.
Additive manufacturing is not just 3D printing, but a process with a lot of important steps including post processing. Especially in SLS technology when you operate with powder that could be reused so the ability to retrieve as much as possible is crucial. The process should be clean and fast.
The current Powder Handling Station offers a new UX. It guides you step by step through the whole post-processing. It is more friendly, especially to those who just switched to SLS technology. The PHS works with the ATEX Vacuum Cleaner and the SLS Sandblaster like it was before, but now you don’t have to plug all of these peripheral devices separately. After those changes, the post processing of a typical printout will last about 15 minutes of the user’s time.
