Oqton, Ghent, Belgium, has entered into a partnership with Farsoon Technologies, headquartered in Changsha, China, to provide a complete manufacturing workflow – from design through production – within a single software solution.

Oqton’s AM software portfolio, comprising 3DXpert, Amphyon, and Manufacturing OS, addresses the entire workflow. This includes leveraging 3DXpert for design optimisation and toolpath planning, Amphyon for process simulation to improve print strategies, and its AI-powered Manufacturing OS platform running order optimisation and scheduling, monitoring, and management.

Farsoon’s industrial Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machines feature a wide range of build envelope sizes and production capabilities. Bringing together Oqton’s software and Farsoon’s AM machines is expected to provide an integrated solution designed to enable a more streamlined workflow, including scheduling and planning for the workforce, machines, and material across multiple production lines.

“We’re excited to officially recognise Farsoon as a trusted partner amongst a host of forward-thinking industry leaders,” stated Toby Wang, vice president, Oqton. “We are impressed with the commercial and technical success enabled by their 3D printing technology. As we move forward, we intend to deepen our technical collaboration, further helping our customers achieve their desired results with improved productivity.”

Wenyu Guo, director of metal product line, Farsoon, added, “The partnership with Oqton will offer real value to our customers from additive data design and preparation to production management. With Farsoon’s core strategy of ‘Open for Industry’, we are excited about the advanced design and engineering possibilities with the integration of Oqton’s additive software solutions.”
