The Ricoh AM S5500P has a modelling area of 550 mm (W) × 550 mm (D) × 500 mm (H) and employs an additive manufacturing method known as SLS.

Using this technique, a powdered material is irradiated with the laser for sintering. In addition to the polymer powder materials mainly used with the SLS method, such as PA11 and PA12, universally applicable materials PA6 and PP can also be used. The unit can fabricate different kinds of parts at the same time, as well as large parts all at once.
