Quickparts Offers Next-Day Manufacturing Service for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 18, 2007 -- Quickparts®, the leading provider of custom-manufactured plastic and metal parts, announced today its Next-Day Manufacturing Service for SLS Rapid Prototypes. Quickparts customers can now place online orders for next-day manufacturing of SLS rapid prototypes until 4pm ET.

"Product designers come to Quickparts because our quick turnaround for prototypes can't be matched. Reducing our lead times and expanding our prototyping capacity are crucial drivers to meeting our customers' prototyping needs," said Patrick Hunter, Vice President of Sales at Quickparts. "Next-day SLS manufacturing is offered in Nylon or Glass Filled Nylon material with a natural finish."

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) uses a laser to sinter powder-based materials together, layer-by-layer, to form a solid model. The system consists of a laser, part chamber, and control system.

The part chamber consists of a build platform, powder cartridge, and leveling roller. A thin layer of build material is spread across the platform where the laser traces a two-dimensional cross section of the part sintering the material together. The platform then descends a layer thickness and the leveling roller pushes material from the powder cartridge across the build platform, where the next cross section is sintered to the previous. This continues until the part is completed.

SLS is ideal for durable, functional parts with a variety of applications and is capable of producing snap fits and living hinges. It is a good choice for high-heat and chemically resistant applications.

Ordering next-day SLS prototypes is quick and easy with Quickparts' patent-pending QuickQuote® process, which provides instant price quotes and buying online 24X7.

With Quickparts' QuickQuote technology, users simply upload a 3D CAD (computer-aided design) model, select a manufacturing process -- in this case SLS -- and a custom quote will be created in seconds!
