SLS Somos problem

We have been having difficulty running the DuPont Somos 201 in our
Sinterstations. The problem seems to appear on mostly tubular parts in
which the edge leading into the roller pulls away from the part bed.
Eventually the part lifts and the build needs to be aborted. DTM has
told us to increase the layer thickness to .008", lower the bed temps,
lower the laser power and slow down the roller but it hasn't resolved
our problems.

I've talked with some companies that have actually abondoned Somos.

If anyone has had success with running Somos and would like to offer
some suggestions it would be appreciated.
