Farsoon Releases Flight 252 High Temperature 3D Printing Platform

Share this Article

Following the progress of many manufacturers over the years, it is clear that users around the globe are not left wanting for the new technology and new resources required to keep reaching for the stars while innovating. China’s Farsoon Technologies (with headquarters also in the US and Germany) is a dynamic example of this system—within an industry worth billions—continuing to serve customers with new printers, platforms, and materials within the additive manufacturing space.

Now, Farsoon moves further forward with its Flight Technology (initially unveiled at TCT Asia 2019) for the compact Flight 252P platform. Two new plastic powders are also being released, and Farsoon claims they will not only improve performance in parts, but also savings on the bottom line. With over 25 years in the industry, Farsoon is a pioneer in the plastic laser sintering solutions market and its team expects to continue pushing forward in terms of enhancing efficiency in production, performance, and expansion.

Notably, these new products are being announced at TCT Asia 2020, running from July 8-10. This is the “first physical trade show” the Farsoon team will be attending since the COVID-19 viral pandemic forced show cancellations around the world. Visitors will be able to check out the new platform in person now, finding out more about high-temperature printing, reaching from 220°C (HT) to 280°C (ST). Other features of the new system include better thermal control, improved parameters, and temperature-shielded components.

The 252P is smaller, making it suitable for laboratories as well as onsite for small-scale production. This new platform also provides industrial users with the opportunity to use a wider range of materials. In comparison to typical laser sintering systems, Farsoon also promises that the Flight 252P offers more latitude for developers in terms of materials and applications. Comprehensive processing is offered, and along with a smaller laser spot size (and better laser longevity) comes “greatly increased power.”

The new materials offer the following:

  • PA12 based FS3201PA-F powder for Flight Technology – for applications like auto, electronics, and consumer markets, this advanced formula is meant to offer better durability and reusability.
  • FS2300PA-F polyamide powder is meant to offer users better affordability, faster production, as well as “excellent plasticity.”

Farsoon continues to be known for its advances in additive manufacturing, collaborations with other global leaders, and sales of large installations of hardware.  Are you interested in joining the Farsoon early adopter program? If so, contact globalinfo@farsoon.com for more information.
