M. Holland Company, a leading distributor of thermoplastic resins and 3D printing materials, announced that its 3D Printing division has partnered with Advanced Laser Materials (ALM) and EOS North America to distribute SLS materials.

The agreement marks M. Holland’s first venture in the selective laser sintering (SLS) space. It will allow the company to better support OEMs and injection moulders using SLS and businesses interested in adopting this technology.

Powder bed-based SLS is a rapidly expanding technology for businesses to implement for production applications. The process is fast, efficient and accurate, offering highly repeatable results that can produce large batches of parts and fine features. When first introduced, SLS polymer printing was primarily based on nylon material, but today many more applications require this technology. In addition to nylon, SLS materials include polyamide (PA), polyetherketoneketone (PEKK), polypropylene (PP), thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and more.

The North American distribution agreement includes powdered polymer SLS materials for 3D printing, several additive manufacturing materials compatible with a wide variety of 3D printers, access to standard polymer materials from EOS and custom solutions developed by the ALM engineering team.

According to Haleyanne Freedman, market manager, 3D Printing at M. Holland, “Our partnership with ALM was a natural fit. Offering SLS materials and solutions is important to broaden options for our clients and ALM’s consultative approach complements the way we do business. ALM delivers strong customized material offerings focused on application and technical requirements, which equips us with an expanded suite of solutions and technical information to solve tough application problems for injection moulders.”

Darin Chartier, VP Life Cycle Solutions, at EOS North America commented, “At ALM, our passion is creating the best powder-based materials for additive manufacturing to meet the unique specifications of our clients and allowing them to get creative with their applications. Through our agreement with M. Holland’s 3D Printing group, we are collectively broadening what is possible through selective laser sintering 3D printing technology — reaching new markets and helping drive new applications.”

This partnership strengthens M. Holland’s ever-growing 3D Printing portfolio, which also features offerings from suppliers including BraskemBASFHenkel and more.
