The Prodways Hotline is exclusively reserved for users of Prodways ProMaker printers who need technical assistance.
Do you need technical assistance for your ProMaker printer?
With over 10 years of experience in selective laser sintering associated with state-of-the-art equipment, we can help you best exploit the benefits of polyamide powder “sintering”. The prototypes obtained offer excellent mechanical and thermal characteristics. This technology is ideal for your assembly or functional validations. The parts can be used plain or with a paint finish.
We advise you on different materials adapted to each of your needs:
Natural polyamide – PA2200
Natural Biomed Polyamide
PA2200 following a specific process
Polyamide filled with glass beads
Your parts are made by stacking layers of CO² laser-melted polymer. This process is used to manufacture extremely complex geometries. In a pre-heated chamber, a powder with a polyamide base (nylon) is deposited on a manufacturing platform. An infra-red laser beam melts the powder specifically in the areas corresponding to the part. Upon solidifying again, the upper layer fuses to the lower layer, therefore gradually forming the part. The major advantage of this technology is the fact that manufacturing supports are not required, leaving room for your creativity. Shapes are practically limitless with this process.
This process does not require drying in an oven afterwards.
