Farsoon joins ColdMetalFusion Alliance to set new standards for the reliable production of green parts

Farsoon is joining the ColdMetalFusion Alliance to provide industrialgrade SLS machines for high throughput manufacturing operations. The company plans to use its long experience on building up a large portfolio of open industrial 3D printers to set new standards for the reliable production of green parts in sinterbased AM.

The company delivers again on its mission to industrialize additive manufacturing with truly open industrial 3D printers. With this move, Farsoon also expands its metalsolutions portfolio into sinterbased AM, enabling new applications in 3D metal printing to complement its direct metal additive manufacturing (AM) solutions.

Farsoon has brought together some of the most experienced industry specialists in electronics, laser & optics to ensure that the limits of what is possible can be pushed across wavelengths and scanning strategies. With its track record in delivering mission critical customersolutions, as well as its broad knowhow in additive manufacturing, Farsoon plans to make 3D printing of green parts more robust and scalable for manufacturers.

As a specialist in laser sintering, Farsoon joins ColdMetalFusion together with other industry leaders with decades of experience in the fields of sintering, 3D printing and classical industrial manufacturing. Together, the Alliance members provide services, equipment, material, software and knowhow to customers in the metal manufacturing industry.

“With selective laser sintering, we use not only one of the most widely used technologies in polymer 3D printing today, but also open an entirely new submarket within the metalAM landscape. Farsoon uniquely combines both laser and mechanical engineering expertise with customercentric solutions instead of offtheshelf systems. This new application of laser sintering will help to make additive manufacturing series production possible in an economic manner via a lower CAPEX, as companies can use their existing machinery.

And from system requirements to part design, Farsoon understands what it takes to achieve the stability and processrobustness required. We are industrialists by heritage and as such share many values such as trust, reliability and innovation with the other ColdMetalFusion members. This shared culture is one of the reasons why we have decided to join the ColdMetalFusion Alliance.” says Dr. Dirk Simon, Managing Director of Farsoon Europe.

ColdMetalFusion’s vision is to industrialize additive manufacturing through common standards in between sintering and additive manufacturing. ColdMetalFusion members share not only standards, but also a common culture and way of thinking. As “industrialists” with a long history, the members have an exigence of robustness and 24/7 operation of a factory. The joining of Farsoon is a tipping point to accelerate that vision for ColdMetalFusion. Together with other members, Farsoon will encourage this thinking into joint solutions.

On the Formnext exhibition in November in Frankfurt, Germany, ColdMetalFusion members will demonstrate the Alliance’s mission of industrialization. Farsoon will inform customers about its plans for equipment tailored for ColdMetalFusion in hall 11.1, booth D29, while customers can experience ColdMetalFusion in hall 11.1, booth D48.
