Farsoon Technologies, headquartered in Hunan, China, has announced the first step of a new Continuous Additive Manufacturing Solution (CAMS) concept. Developed to address the growing movement of the additive industry into industrial-scale manufacturing and future models of production such as Industry 4.0, CAMS aims to offer continuous Additive Manufacturing through vertical scalability and modularisation.
According to Farsoon, the planned end-result is a system which is capable of integration into any industrial manufacturing facility. “As an industrial-focused AM company, Farsoon is committed to shifting the mindset of what Additive Manufacturing can become,” stated Dr Xu Xiaoshu, Farsoon’s Founder and Chairman.
While the company’s first CAMS system, the FS1000P, will be for plastic-based Additive Manufacturing only, the CAMS concept will also be applied to industrial-scale metal Additive Manufacturing.
The initial FS1000P is targeted to be the largest plastic powder bed system on the market with a 1000 x 500 x 500 mm build volume, and will offer continuous batch production capabilities and fully digital multi-laser and scanner systems. Farsoon stated that it plans to release the details of a large-platform metal CAMS system in the near future.
