Farsoon Technologies, headquartered in Changsha, China, has announced that it has joined the ColdMetalFusion Alliance to provide industrial-grade Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machines for high-throughput manufacturing operations. The company plans to use its experience to make the Additive Manufacturing of green parts more robust and scalable.
“With selective laser sintering, we use not only one of the most widely used technologies in polymer 3D printing today, but also open an entirely new sub-market within the metal AM landscape,” stated Dr Dirk Simon, Managing Director of Farsoon Europe. “Farsoon uniquely combines both laser and mechanical engineering expertise with customer-centric solutions instead of off-the-shelf systems. This new application of laser sintering will help to make Additive Manufacturing series production possible in an economic manner via a lower CAPEX, as companies can use their existing machinery.”
“From system requirements to part design, Farsoon understands what it takes to achieve the stability and process-robustness required,” Simon continued. “We are industrialists by heritage and as such share many values such as trust, reliability and innovation with the other ColdMetalFusion members. This shared culture is one of the reasons why we have decided to join the ColdMetalFusion Alliance.”
At Formnext 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany, ColdMetalFusion will present on 11.1, D48, while Farsoon will be at 11.1, D29.
