Sinterit is a famous business in additive manufacturing which is directly linked to the numerous advantages associated with SLS 3D printing. We are delighted to present an overview of the latest machine, which is full of innovation since the very beginning.

The Sinterit NILS480 3D printing device is believed to transform the field within its domain. NILS is a reference to New Industrial Laser Sintering and it describes the essential aspects that the device is based upon. It is described as a Top 3D Shop, and we suggest that you take a look at the launch of the New Sinterit industrial line.

About Sinterit

Sinterit is among the biggest Polish makers of SLS 3D printers and specialized products. It was founded in 2014 and has, since it has been able to continue to impress the world of additive manufacturing by its top-quality performance SLS solutions. The principal purpose of the company is to help professionals in the field of creativity by offering them high-quality affordable, simple-to-use tools to help simplify their manufacturing.

The most significant achievement of Sinterit is the enhancement of SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technology, which makes the power of a laser to sinter powders of polymer to form solid objects, without needing support structures. This method is highly efficient and offers an array of possibilities because of the diverse environments and the variety of materials. In addition, Sinterit offers the whole printing system , which includes post-processing and powder management tools, as well as software specifically made specifically for it, along with a range of powders as well as an extensive range of services. It is clear that these areas are completely covered by the NILS The 480.


First industrial-grade printer produced through Sinterit, the NILS 480 was designed to improve SLS 3D printing more efficiently and , consequently, be more profitable. Contrary to previous desktop printers which comprised the compact line of printers, this one is the first to take SLS technology to the next level.

NILS 480 is designated for effectiveness, efficiency, and performance which are crucial to all companies in the industrial industry. To accomplish this it is equipped with an enormous capacity for production as well as features that guarantee continuous operation and self-contained functioning. Its features set it apart from other machines.

Sinterit has established itself as a top-quality manufacturer due to its small SLS 3D Printers line. Despite the many differences the printers are able to excel in dealing with issues that are outside of industrial printing , such as business and education. Check out the table below to see the specs of NILS the 480 compared to other printers from Sinterit.

What's in the box?

The printer comes with specially designed tools and equipment to make printing and processing more effective and comfortable. Along with the printer, the basic set of equipment includes:

  • I box
  • Trowel
  • Tools for managing powder
  • Security tools for personal use
  • Post-processing tools
  • Kit for maintaining
  • USB drive with Sinterit Studio software
  • Power cable
  • User manuals

For some items, package content may change. If you have questions, you can contact us.

To enhance the overall efficiency and experience for users, Sinterit provides additional equipment which can be purchased in sets or separately. We'll get into the topic later.

Smart features

Sinterit tends to preserve the benefits that its products provide. In this case, the version NILS 480 is no exception. The model continues to adhere to its traditions in the field of industrial production.

Additionally, this NILS 480 boasts new technologies that make it an excellent instrument to boost productivity.

Unprecedented speed of printing

It is worth noting that the Sinterit device is super speedy printing at 10- 14 millimeters/hour. This is a significant improvement for anyone who used previous Sinterit models. This way most prints can be produced within 24 hours. But the entire bed may take up to 30 hours to finish.

This speed is possible by using the galvo laser which is brand new. In contrast that of the XY laser used for the tiny portion of the galvo laser doesn't move when printing. The beam is directed towards various mirrors that are able to direct it in different directions through changing its design.

In reducing the time spent printing, and also a less frequent refresh, the percentage of powder could be decreased to around 22 percent.

With the full collection of high-end peripherals that are available from Sinterit All additional steps can be accomplished within less than an hour.

Industrial size

The NILS 480 makes a big difference in the dimensions of the build. The model image below shows how many printouts could be printed by the printer within a single print session.

The chamber built in this way allows you to print large parts together, including shoe covers, the enclosure that houses electronic devices, automotive prototyping, arm orthosis and much more. The most efficient packing is ensured through the auto-nesting feature that is built into Sinterit Studio. Sinterit Studio software.

Automated operation

It is the NILS.480. Sinterit offers two brand new systems that are essential to the printing capabilities of the printer. They are known in the form of Automatic Powder Dispensing System (APDS) and Continuous Printing System (CPS).

APDS allows the work process using powder to an level of automation only available to the most powerful machines. The powder that's discarded from the overflow bins is then transported in a continuous manner into the dispenser. Thanks to the tank built in, it does not require refilling prior to every printing job. Furthermore, APDS allows lowering the cost of printing.

CPS is able to manage an independent continuous printing process that is non-stop. Once the images are (2 days) the printer's bed releases cakes from the cool container and starts making a new printout. There isn't any further intervention from anyone that is required. The system drastically reduces interruptions to the device.

The capabilities allow you to design an all-in-one printer solution for manufacturing centers, or service providers. Other applications require a huge amount of prints per day.

Quick Return on investment

Alongside the low maintenance , the printer also comes with the most expensive printing costs. This is a combination of the material cost and refresh rate as well as the time to shut down the machine, its printing process, and the price of buying the printer. This is the reason why the NILS 480 is a winner in these areas. The combination of all the advantages makes it a printer with excellent ROI.

Based on the prices offered by the suppliers, you may be able to purchase the machine within 40 days following the beginning of production.
