Our Nylon Services
We can cater for any scale project using our SLS Nylon machines, from one off parts to full serial manufacturing. Prices can vary depending on size, quantity, and production times.
SLS Nylon is great for one off parts, taking advantage of design freedom and great material quality.
- Bespoke One Offs
- Display Models
- Study Models
We can produce low volume batches of parts quickly and cost effectively. Pricing is based on the nested volume of parts, so with higher volume comes a lower unit cost. Either send us your files, or use our set priced container volumes.
- Design Assemblies
- Pilot Production Runs
- One of Production
- Repeat Orders
Producing high quantity parts fit for end use products as an alternative to injection moulding. We can partner with you to enhance the design and performance with unique pricing structures and production times.
- No set up costs
- No MOQs
- Just in Time Production
SLS Nylon Containers
Here you can use our unique fixed priced volumes for printing small batches of parts. It makes multiple part orders quicker and more cost effective .
- No Quoting Required.
- Full control on part orientation.
- Manage your own quantities
Raw Nylon SLS typically is white, with a granular finish. Our advanced finishing techniques can help transform parts into something more suitable and valuable to your requirements.
Add colour and value to your products by using our new and advanced dyeing process. With our high quality internal processes we can achieve the most consistent and repeatable colours and surface textures, perfect for production runs and even wearables.
