Who are we?

CIPRES – your service provider for the production of laser sintered nylon parts in color

CIPRES was founded in 2004 by Carlos Prestien, as a manufacturer of laser sintering prototypes. From 2006 CIPRES began with the serial production through Additive production (3D-Printing) and can talk about an economical batch production of laser sintered plastic parts nowadays. We are said to be pioneers of coloring of plastic laser sintered parts and are the leading service provider in this field. By now the focus of CIPRES is a further development of color techniques, color units and solutions for surface finishing.

This Technology…

… doesn’t only offer design freedom with optimized structures and surfaces but also great saving potential for smaller and medium quantities. An industrial standard can only be reached when reproducibility and quality through accuracy, homogeneity, density and stiffness of the material are in balance. This is only possible if the process is mastered completely. Concerning the surface quality: Generally the ready for sale quality is achieved through post processing and finishing of the sintered blanks. Coloring of plastic laser sintered parts is the main key for the production. CIPRES is specialized and is market leader.

Technology visions
