Advanced Laser Materials intros Nylon 11 powder material for laser sintering

Sept. 10, 2020
The material, a Nylon 11 powder without carbon fiber, produces parts with a good surface finish and is easy to machine.

Advanced Laser Materials (ALM; Temple, TX), an EOS company and specialist in materials development for industrial 3D printing and additive manufacturing, has developed material for applications requiring electrostatic discharge (ESD) capabilities, such as electronic products and assembly fixtures for semiconductors.

The material, PA 830-ESD12, is a Nylon 11 powder without carbon fiber. It produces parts with a good surface finish and is easy to machine. This material eliminates static in delicate applications where an overcharge of electricity could interfere in operations. “We’ve created a material that allows for quick scalability, while ensuring parts are completed with a perfect finish and stay easy to machine,” explains Donald Vanelli, President at ALM. 

The Nylon 11 powder is also available through RPS (Aylesbury, England), an industrial 3D printing company specializing in printers, materials, and software. Since October 2010, RPS has been a material distributor partner of ALM. Powder-bed fusion (also known as laser sintering) is an additive manufacturing process that utilizes laser and thermal energy to sinter polymer powder to produce three-dimensional, solid geometries.

The material is currently available for most powder bed-based machines
