Farsoon 403P series is a powerful and versatile platform for plastic laser sintering.
Farsoon 403P Series is said to be a powerful and versatile platform for plastic laser sintering. Featuring an industrial-scale build cylinder of 400 × 400 × 450 mm (15.7 × 15.7 × 17.7 in) dimension, the 403P series is suited for efficient manufacturing of large sized parts or series production of smaller parts for reduced cost.
The 403P platform is offered in multiple configurations featuring a range of speed and temperature capabilities, including our latest Flight Technology for scalability of throughput and high-resolution details as small as 0.23 mm. Temperature shielding, laser power and thermal controls enable high-temperature configuration up to 220℃ for processing industrial materials, such as PA6, for direct-use applications.
Heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar has found numerous uses for additive manufacturing in its operations. Here are just a few applications the company has found.
Reduce cost, reduce weight—to the extent that additive manufacturing can do these things, it represents a promising method for making aircraft parts. While important constraints currently prevent additive manufacturing from seeing more widespread use in aircraft production, these constraints might not be what you think. Here is a look at additive manufacturing within Boeing.
Arizona Home Floors considered buying a mold to produce a plastic version of its DustRam product. But when a prototype proved durable enough to withstand working conditions, the production strategy shifted to 3D printing.
