Start by removing the cake with the IO box so it can be smoothly moved from the printer area and put on the Multi PHS to depowder the prints. After removing the unsintered powder from the print, turn on the Multi PHS to begin collecting the powder. The sifting and refreshing process take place in the Multi PHS. You only need to fill in the powder chamber with the refresh powder; Multi PHS will mix it for you. After refreshing, move the container with refreshed powder out to reuse it for the next print.
Contact with the powder was limited at each stage of the process.
The IO Box (added to the printer) helps move the print cake out carefully and slowly, limiting the powder mess. Once you have a print cake on the Multi PHS space cleaning the print, the unsintered powder goes down so you don’t have to move the powder to another place.
The suction hose and powder wiper (attached to the Multi PHS) help you clean up after the depowering stage.
To limit the spread of powder, use the funnel when adding fresh powder from the container to sifted, unsintered material. The funnel is available in our Dedicated Powder Tools set.
There are several new features added to Multi PHS:
You can unplug the sieve from the Multi PHS, slide it outside on the guides and use as a separate sifting unit. It’s a useful feature if you print from rarely used material, and don’t want to clean the whole workstation just for it. You can clean the printout separately (eg. on folding tray) and then sieve the remaining powder for further use.
No, you can post-process printouts without the workstation. Your decision to purchase depends primarily on your specific printing requirements.If you plan on printing a large number of parts or using multiple types of SLS powders during the printer’s lifetime, it’s advisable to consider purchasing the Multi PHS. It saves your time, effort, material, and consequently, money.
Up to 98%, on average it can be closer to 95%.
Cleaning time can range from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the used material.
Yes, the use of Multi PHS is completely safe. The main risk factors like vapors, airborne dust, ignition, and explosion are thoroughly tested to ensure they are contained within safety guidelines. In addition, Multi PHS is ATEX attested as a part of the Performance set.
The main reason Somfy reached out for the SLS technology from Sinterit was productivity. Printing many pieces in one batch was a game-changer
When we look at Lisa’s line of printers, or Sinterit at general compared to other companies, the two major things that we liked were the materials, that are open source, so we are not locked into one brand, the materials that may have supply chain issues or just very high pricing because of some unique material. We are able to look around the market and use a material that works best for the part.
Another thing was how good the customer service has been. We were quite happy with all the support we received for Lisa Pro. When we were looking for a bigger printer we had a good experience, with no complaints, so it was a very painless upgrade for us for Lisa X
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.
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.
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.
