Equipment - EOS Formiga P100 for Selective Laser Sintering

The EOS Formiga P100 is used for laser sintering of polymers. It is used to support fundamental research and characterisation of new materials.

The P390 has a heated chamber which is filled with a thin layer of polymeric powdered materials (typically semi-crystalline polymers). Parts are created without a support structure.

The polymeric powder is selectively melted into layers by a 30 W CO2 laser with a wavelength of 10.6µm.
