Farsoon Europe, the Stuttgart-based subsidiary of Chinese 3D printer manufacturer Farsoon Technologies, has signed a development agreement with Rapid Manufacturing AG, a Swiss plastic 3D printing service provider, for the beta testing of Farsoon’s new Flight technology.

Farsoon has therefore installed its Flight-HT403P laser sintering 3D printer at Rapid Manufacturing’s facility, which has been tested and optimized for the production of plastic components.

“We are evolving our company in huge steps,” stated Alain Stebler, CEO of Rapid Manufacturing AG.

“WE ARE CONVINCED THAT WITH THE ALREADY 10-YEAR-OLD FARSOON, WE HAVE FOUND A RELIABLE PARTNER WHO HELPS US TO OFFER HIGH-QUALITY PARTS AT EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE PRICES.”

Farsoon’s Flight technology was first introduced in February 2019. It is an additive manufacturing process designed to enhance the productivity of plastic laser sintering. Also known as Fiber Light Technology, the process replaces standard CO₂ laser technology with powerful fiber lasers instead. Fiber lasers are said to provide increased laser longevity and energy absorption which expands the range of processable materials for Farsoon’s systems.

Power - Density - Fiber - Lasers - Powder

The higher power density from fiber lasers allows the powder to be fully sintered in a shorter amount of time as well.“With flight technology we have greatly enhanced the capabilities of high-speed laser sintering to meet the needs of high-volume production,” commented Dr. Xu Xiaoshu at the time, Founder and Chairman of Farsoon Technologies.

Version - Farsoon - HT403P - Printer - System

The Flight-enabled version of Farsoon’s existing HT403P 3D printer utilizes the system’s 400 x 400 x 540 mm³ build cylinder volume. However, it replaces the 100W CO₂ laser with a 500W fiber laser, which is able to transform black polyamide powder into plastic parts at speed. The Flight-HT403P is...
