Farsoon Announces Development of Quad-Laser Flight Technology on HT1001P 3D Printing System at TCT Asia


Soon announced the development of quad-laser Flight technology on a large format laser sintering polymer platform. The system, named Flight HT1001P, is currently in beta testing at Farsoon’s R&D facilities in Changsha, China.

According to Farsoon, the system is capable of continuous production capacity, and with an extended build volume of 1000 x 500 x 450mm, it is designed to deliver improved manufacturing speed and yield.

Farsoon has implemented rugged fiber lasers on industrial laser powder bed fusion systems. Following the introduction of the application of High Speed ​​Flight Technology (Flight short for Fiber Light) on Farsoon’s 403P series and high temperature 252P series, Farsoon began to focus on the development of multi -laser on large format platforms maximizing production yield and reducing manufacturing cost per part.

The large build cartridge alongside the 300-watt quad fiber lasers allows the Flight HT1001P to deliver scan speeds of up to 20m/s for each laser according to Farsoon, which the company says is also the best industry productivity for large parts.

Compared to the single laser configuration of the Flight 403P platform, the new system can deliver up to 275% higher production rate according to Farsoon, as well as 5.6 times higher production output than a only CO2 laser device. The company says the CAMS concept’s interchangeable build cartridge and integrated conveyor system means the new system can do two full 225-litre builds in one day.

According to Farsoon, the platform is capable of reaching chamber temperatures of up to 220 degrees Celsius to process high temperature materials such as PA6 for end-use parts.

Farsoon exhibits at TCT Asia 2022 in Shenzhen, China, November 3-5.

At TCT Asia in 2021, Farsoon demonstrated dual laser flight 3D printing technology on its 403P 3D printing system. The company initially launched the Flight technology at TCT Asia 2019.
