SLS 3D printing on the microscale: precision components for electronics and micromachines

In the era of miniaturization, selective laser sintering (SLS) technology is gaining importance as a tool for the production of precision components on a micro scale, especially for the electronics and micromachinery industries. SLS on a microscale allows you to create parts with complex shapes and dimensions that are impossible to achieve using traditional production methods.

The main advantage of SLS on a micro scale is the ability to create complex shapes with high precision. With micron-level resolution, SLS with PA12 allows the production of components with the fine detail that is essential in advanced electronic devices and micromachines. Although the minimum wall thickness recommended by suppliers of SLS-printed components – such as Technology Applied, the largest Polish service company – is 0.8 mm, in reality it is possible to obtain smaller thicknesses, provided that the overall geometry of the part allows it. Before ordering the production of microparts, it is worth consulting with specialists – e.g. mentioned Technology Applied.

In the electronics industry, precision components manufactured with SLS are used in microswitches, connectors and sensor housings. In micromachines, SLS enables the creation of complex components such as microhinges, springs and miniature gears that are crucial to their functioning. The SLS method offers the possibility of rapid prototyping and production, which is particularly important in rapidly developing fields such as electronics. Designers can quickly test and modify their designs, reducing the time and costs associated with product development.

Polyamide PA12 used in SLS technology is characterized by high strength and resistance to environmental conditions, which is important in electronic and micromachine applications. This material ensures durability and reliability of components, even in complex and demanding applications. SLS technology combines precision, design flexibility and material strength, making it an ideal solution for the most advanced and innovative applications.
