The Modular Material Processing Solution (MMPS) cuts down powder handling time by 50% and reduces the direct contact to powder – saving our customers both time and money. The system is flexible, easy to clean, features a compact design and offers high speed and safety alike. All while maintaining an easily understandable user interface.

Take your first step to automate your laser sintering process

The MMPS makes powder handling easy.

The vacuum conveying system is completely “made by LSS” and packed with all our expertise of handling laser sintering machines for over 15 years. The MMPS system offers our customers the technology needed to feed laser sintering machines fast, efficiently and savely.

Thanks to the innovative modular design, the MMPS is individually adaptable to the customers‘ and machine‘s needs. The system is flexible, easy to clean, features a compact design and offers high speed and safety alike. All while maintaining an easily understandable user interface.

Controller Module

The controller module is the brain of the MMPS system. It always keeps an eye on filling levels, mixing ratios, humidity and temperature. Its userfriendly design facilitates an easy monitoring of the whole process.

MMPS Material

Material Module

The material module has a capacity of 200L. The revolutionary „Vibrasystem“ ensures a complete emptying of the system and makes sure that there is no powder wasted.

Blending Module

The blending module can mix up to three materials. The exact blending ratio is adjustable to always fit the needs. A precise weight control, through multi load cell system, and the complete mixing, thanks to the batch-mix process, are two main advantages of this module.

Technical questions

What are the installation conditions for the MMPS?

With any SLS machines or equipment the main factors to consider are: temperature, humidity, space needed, distance to flammable objects and people working in the area around the machine. For detailed information, please consult the corresponding brochure or contact us.

Are the RAPTOR series and the MMPS System compatible?

Yes, the MMPS system has been designed to perfectly match the Industrial Additive Manufacturing capabilities of the RAPTOR series. Our goal is to create open platform systems that can be used with both existing and new equipment.

Is the MMPS compatible with non-LSS SLS machines?

Yes, it is possible to connect the MMPS system to other standard SLS machines currently on the market. We are happy to check if the MMPS is an option for your existing SLS machine. Just contact us.

Can the mixing ratio be adapted?

Yes, the controller module is the brain of the system. With it, you can monitor the whole process and adjust mixing ratios and weights.
