3D printing polymers are a key component in the SLS printing method. The powders typically used in this industry are PA11, PA12, and TPU powders. Sieving 3D printing polymers into a specific size range is an integral part of the 3D printing process. These powders are often sticky and need to have fines removed at sizes as low as 50 micron. Failing to remove these fines will result in poor builds and low-structural integrity parts being made. Screening 3D printing polymers is a process that Elcan has helped countless companies improve upon in our contract manufacturing facility and we can likely help you too!
