Farsoon launches four new models of its 3D printing machines


CATEGORY: Manufacturers and Distributors BRAND: Farsoon

They focus on the industrial production of parts using plastic or metal powders.

Farsoon already had a very broad portfolio of 3D printing machines. In line with Farsoon's "OPEN FOR INDUSTRY" philosophy, Farsoon promotes the series production of parts using 3D printing. Therefore, Farsoon is now expanding its portfolio with four new models in the European market. This should cover the need for cheaper production of parts and at the same time increasing resolution of the parts’ geometries and improve parts’ quality. 


As with all Farsoon models, the new models are “open systems”, allowing customers to freely choose the materials for their 3D printing, according to the specific needs of various end-uses. Furthermore, the user can freely adapt the process parameters in order to achieve maximum productivity with the required best part qualities. 


The new models were developed at Farsoon's Headquarters in China, taking full account of the interests and special requirements of the European market. Farsoon used the feedback from the broad customer base, mainly from Germany and Italy, in this development. The performance of these new models has been validated in the application center at Farsoon's headquarters and with various customers in China.


Some advantages of these new models are described as follows:



1.) The Farsoon Flight HT403P-2 is Farsoon's fastest laser sintering system. On an area of 400 x 400 mm², two 300 Watt fiber lasers and two scanners with up to 20 m/s cooperate in the production of the plastic parts using the powder bed process. The system is offered with moveable cartridges with build cylinder heights of 450 mm or 540 mm. Farsoon Flight technology (flight = fiber laser light) uses the relatively small diameter of the fiber laser to increase the feature resolution of the manufactured parts.


2.) The Farsoon HT1001P-2 established in the market is Farsoon's largest laser sintering system with a high degree of automation. This system represents Farsoon's Continuous Additive Manufacturing Solution (CAMS), which allows for the automatic change of build cylinders after parts’ manufacture is completed. The plastic powder feed can operate in a closed circuit, using Farsoon’s Powder Management System. The HT1001P-2 systems have been used successfully in Europe since the beginning of 2019. Farsoon is now introducing the Farsoon Flight HT1001P-2 to the European market. This means that the advantages of Farsoon Flight technology can also be used for this production machine: The speed of scanning is significantly increased, the relatively small diameter of the fiber laser can increase the feature resolution of the manufactured parts.



3.) The Farsoon FS271M has been established on the market for 7 years, it enables 3D printing of metal powders using the laser melting process. Farsoon has continuously expanded their machine portfolio, most recently the Farsoon FS273M was launched in November 2021 as the successor to the FS271M.

For larger systems, for 4 years, customers have been using the Farsoon FS421M machine, which can be optionally equipped with one or two lasers. The closed powder circuit and the use of cartridges as build cylinders enable very efficient production of metal parts. This is particularly popular in the automotive industry. With the new Farsoon FS422M-4, the productivity of parts’ production is significantly increased by using 4 lasers on an area of 420 x 420 mm². Farsoon has once again significantly optimized the software for the cooperation of the 4 lasers and scanners, especially for the overlapping area. As with the FS421M, the metal powder can be circulated in a closed loop in the new FS422M-4. Farsoon also fulfills the customer's request for a higher build height, which is 550mm in the FS422M-4. 


4.) Especially in the aerospace and energy industries, there is a request for significantly higher build envelops. Farsoon realizes this with the new Farsoon FS621M-4 with a height of 1100 mm. The build area of 620 x 620 mm² is also important for the desired large part. This makes this machine one of the largest laser melting machines available on the market. The powder handling operates in a closed loop, the powder is fed onto the build area continuously from the top without interrupting the build job. The powder filter systems are also designed in such a way that the filters can be exchanged (if necessary) without interrupting the build jobs.
