Prodensia (ICON)

To produce mechanical parts using Selective Laser Sintering of polymers, the porosity and anisotropy of such parts still has to be improved.

By optimizing process technology (monitoring, hardware and post-processing technology) this project aims at increasing density to a level that parts are reached with comparable mechanical properties as injection molded parts.
