2016年11月18日，德国法兰克福 – 华曙高科在全球最高端的增材制造展览会Formnext上发布其最新的尼龙激光烧结PLS（Plastic Laser Sintering）设备403P系列。该设备将大幅提升增材制造生产效率，且工作腔温度可满足加工PA6材料的要求。
“巴斯夫对于华曙高科在领导如何降低尼龙制造成本的同时提升激光烧结技术的性能及工艺方面极为赞赏”， 巴斯夫新兴业务事业部3D打印业务总监Dirk Simon博士解释道，“对于规模用户， 巴斯夫计划将Ultrasint PA6 粉末材料的单价最高优惠20%，以获取更多订单，巴斯夫支持采用此方法加工生产性价比更高的PA6尼龙件”。
Farsoon Technologies committed to reduce high quality PA6 part fabrication costs.
November 18th, 2016 Frankfurt Messe, at Formnext the premier European show for additive manufacturing Farsoon Technologies has released the 403P series PLS (plastic laser sintering) system. This new system features enhanced productivity and a high temperature build chamber capable of processing PA6 material.
Many customers have been satisfied with Farsoon’s laser sintering machines throughout the world, which fully comply with industrial standards in the USA and Europe but with substantially lower investment costs. Moreover, Farsoon has enhanced the performance of their machines to be capable of successfully processing PA6 powder, which require higher and more homogeneous powder bed temperatures and a stable nitrogen atmosphere. These “HT” machines also provide better performance at a lower costs of the fabricated plastic parts. This is the new industry standard in laser sintering of plastic powders, and therefore Farsoon has committed to providing “HT” capability to its high end plastic laser sintering system. The SS403P will be replaced by the high temperature capable HT403P with no additional investment from the customer. This underlines the commitment of Farsoon, together with its partner BASF, to support the industrial 3D-Printing, where customers asks for higher competitiveness.
“BASF is positively impressed by Farsoon taking leadership by reducing costs of plastic part fabrication simultaneously with increasing performance and functionality in laser sintering,” explains Dr. Dirk Simon, 3D-Printing Business Director in BASF New Business GmbH. “Based on improvements with economy of scale, BASF supports this approach for more affordable PA6 parts fabricated by laser sintering with reducing the price of BASF Ultrasint PA6 powder by up to 20% for higher purchase quantities effective immediately.”
By increasing machine and material capability while at the same time reducing investment costs to the customer, Farsoon and BASF together show their commitment to provide a true additive manufacturing solution.
