Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

With SLS technology, we provide drone designers and engineers the ability to produce complex geometries and durable parts. SLS offers a wide range of materials suitable for automotive applications, including high-performance plastics and composites. From lightweight components to functional parts with excellent heat resistance, SLS empowers automotive manufacturers to create innovative designs with superior strength and reliability.

Benefits of SLS Printing:

  • Complex Geometries and Design Flexibility: SLS technology allows the creation of intricate geometries, enabling innovative and optimised drone designs.
  • Durability and High-Performance Materials: SLS offers a range of durable, high-performance plastics and composites.
  • Lightweight Components: SLS produces lightweight, robust components, enhancing flight efficiency and battery life.
  • Rapid Prototyping for Iterative Design: SLS enables quick production of functional prototypes, speeding up design improvements and time to market.

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)

Utilising MJF 3D printing technology, Formero offers drone manufacturers the capability to produce high-quality, detailed parts with exceptional precision and repeatability. MJF’s advanced process delivers consistent mechanical properties and smooth surface finishes, making it ideal for both prototyping and production.

Benefits of MJF 3D Printing for Drone Applications:

  • Speed and Efficiency: MJF allows for rapid production of parts, significantly reducing lead times and accelerating the development cycle.
  • Superior Surface Finish: Achieves smooth and detailed surface finishes, reducing the amount of post-processing required and enhancing the aesthetic and functional quality of drone components.
  • Cost-Effective Production: Ideal for both low and high-volume production runs, offering cost savings through efficient material usage and reduced waste.
  • Consistent Mechanical Properties: Produces parts with uniform strength and durability, ensuring reliable performance for critical drone components.
