Recap 2018: New machines and cutting-edge technologies

This year has been exceptionally exciting for us. As 2018 ends, we are happy to look back to a year filled with innovation, technology and growth.

We launched our very own laser sintering machine line: the RAPTOR series. While we still provide our expert service on all kinds of machines, this has brought us to become a real machine manufacturer. We took all of our expertise to create the one of a kind 84X-Q machine, the first laser sintering system offering a four-laser/scanner-platform ever. It increases productivity and speed – allowing decreased costs per part. Learn more about this innovative solution here.

Big news was the presentation of the all-new ThermoMeltTM technology. This Airbus patented process enables the efficient use of high-performance polymers in laser sintering. Find out more here. In ARKEMA, we found our perfect partner to further use the ThermoMeltTM technology in the field of E&E using the Kepstan® PEKK material (Read all about it).

One big issue in laser sintering that we wanted to solve was the powder handling process. Our own MMPS (Modular Material Processing Solution) system cuts down the powder handling time and the direct contact to the material to make the efficient feeding of various laser sintering machines possible. All while maintaining an easy-to-use interface and a modularity that facilitates the customization of the system to the clients’ needs.

“2018 has been THE year for LSS. The overwhelming feedback we have received for our developments proofs we took the right decisions and for 2019 we are full of anticipation to see the advantages our solutions will bring for our customers.”, Guido Elbrecht, CEO LSS, concludes.

We also grew as a company and welcomed new colleagues to our team; sponsored the DHBW Engineering Formula Student team in their quest to building their racecar and were present at the main 3D printing industry events in Germany (Formnext, 3D Valley Conference and Additive Manufacturing Forum).

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you as our client, supplier, newsletter reader or follower for this great year. We are happy to see that you are just as excited about our innovations as we are and we are looking forward to doing business with you in the coming year.


We wish you, your team and your family happy holidays, merry Christmas and a successful start into 2019!
