Best ROI
on the SLS market
With the speed, build size and automated work the NILS brings, you achieve superior ROI in an industrial SLS printer – in as little as 40 days.

NILS 480 main features

  • Printout quality
  • SLS printout benefits
  • Open-system 3rd-party materials can be used and the 32 printing parameters can be modified

  • Open environment
  • Wide material range
Continuous Printing System
With this solution, fill the powder once and print two full beds or a few lower print beds. All of this without repeating the print preparation process and powder filling. How does the NILS do this? The previous bed automatically ejects, lifting a full cake to the cooling box. The printing bed comes back and another print automatically begins.
Easy operation
With automated systems, an effective ecosystem with post-processing, and easy material change, you can be sure the printing experience will be smooth and simple.

Automatic Powder Dispensing System
Just fill the container with powder and let the printer manage the rest of the process. This is possible thanks to the special closed powder circuit, which circulates the powder and automates the powder dispensing. No manual work with powder is required until you receive the final print cake. 
32 open printing parameters
Each of our materials has an optimized profile that allows you to gain the best quality and personalization. When you’re ready to modify or make your own profile for changing printout properties, the NILS’ 32 parameters can be adjusted.

It was the best choice for me to fulfill all requirements: possibility to print complex structures, price, speed, reliability.

Sinterit LISA is the most accessible means to produce precise constraint-free solutions to modern problems. The technology does what it says on the tin and the team at Sinterit is dedicated to working with their customers to achieve their objectives.

Peter Benthues
H. Gautzsch Firmengruppe

For a company at the beginning of an investigation, support from, and discussion with the technology experts is extremely beneficial. The LISA is one of the few economically feasible solutions in the first stages of any AM Strategy. At lower volumes, it is a perfect solution.

The FFF and SLA parts are a good choice to get a physical impression of the designs and to assemble rough prototypes. But when it comes to producing reliable prototypes to be verified in our fatigue tests or to send functional samples to our customers for validation, SLS is the only acceptable choice.

The print quality of the Lisa PRO is impressive.

Sean Higgins
Nabson Inc.

In order to keep up with our production demand, we have been operating the Lisa PRO almost 7 days a week for the past couple of months, without incident, and produced over 1500 sleeves.

NILS 480 Brochure

What is an Open SLS 3D printer?

The temperature distribution is crucial in the Selective Laser Sintering printing process.

The 22 heating elements spread across four heating zones enable you to strictly control the temperature variations inside the printer. The resulting array of options for modifying and adjusting parameters allows you to optimize the printing process for developed materials, test new research methodologies, and receive top-quality printouts.

FAQ

How does the automated print cake removal work and does it automatically start the next build?

After the printing is finished, the cake leaves the cooling box, and then is cut off. This starts another process inside the machine.

Does the Sinterit Studio have a nesting feature?

Yes, Sinterit Studio has a built-in nesting feature.

Will the NILS 480 be manufactured and assembled in Poland?

Yes, the NILS 480 will be manufactured & assembled in Poland

Does the machine run on single-phase or three-phase power?

The machine runs on single-phase

          Pricing

          Below there are approximate costs for some example models.
          Be aware that the quotation assumes that there is only one piece printed. In SLS technology, the cost per part will be much lower with a higher number of elements printed at once.
