Fast Cycle SLS 3D Printer
QLS 230 is the most affordable open platform selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printer for industrial use. It provides a 24 hour cycle speed using a single 30 Watt CO2 laser to produce prototypes with robust mechanical and thermal properties. In addition to a broad range of high-temp thermoplastic materials, it excels with recycled powders from HP® and EOS.
Open Material Platform
In addition to accepting recycled powder from HP and EOS, the QLS 230 currently has 10 qualified nylon powders, including a range of Polyamides, PP, PBT, TPU, as well as the patented metal powders from headmade materials
QLS 230 is powered by two advanced software suites, Buildware and XYZprint AMSLS. Buildware controls the sintering process while the XYZprint AMSLS allows users to start and monitor jobs remotely.
Cold Metal Fusion Compatible
Cold Metal Fusion by headmade materials is a patented process that combines the advantages of fast cycle sintering with established powder metallurgy processes to create titanium and steel parts. Using a polymer-coated metal powder, the QLS 230 produces 'green' parts in a low temperature processing environment. Parts then go through a secondary debinding and sintering process that burns out any remaining polymer and sinters metal particles together to form final metal components.
