July 8th, 2020 – TCT Asia – Farsoon Technologies – Since first introducing Flight Technology and its application on Farsoon’s medium frame 403P system during TCT Asia 2019, Farsoon has continued its development momentum by implementing Flight technology on the high-temperature 252P platform. In addition two new plastic powder materials are being announced for Flight technology providing enhanced part features as well as improved cost-performance ratios.
“With a background over 25 years in developing additive systems and material powder, Farsoon is one of the few companies in the market that can harness integrated plastic laser sintering solutions.” says Dr. Xu Xiaoshu, Chairman of Farsoon Technologies. “During the further development and beta-testing, we are convinced by the great potential brought about by establishing a comprehensive machine-material framework for Flight Technology that will accelerate the next steps of additive of productivity, performance and details to an expanding markets and application field.”
High Temperature Capable Machine Platform
The Flight 252P series offers two configurations capable of achieving processing chamber temperatures from up to 220°C (HT) to 280°C (ST). Enhanced thermal controls, temperature shielded components, and enhanced parameters offer customers the ability to process high performance polymer materials.
Powerful & Compact Platform for Material Development
Application of Flight Technology™ on Farsoon’s high-temperature 252P series results in a powerful, yet versatile plastic AM solution. The compact size of 252P series is well accessible for the research environment as well as small scale production. With increased energy absorption characteristics of Fiber laser, paired with truly open parameters, Flight 252P series is capable of accessing a much wider range of process-able materials and operational flexibility as compared to standard laser sintering systems, which allows for increased freedom for future AM material and application development.
Advanced Material Development for a Wide Range of Innovative applications
The all new PA12 based FS3201PA-F powder for Flight Technology delivers excellent mechanical properties, size accuracy, and high toughness. Our advanced material formula developed Flight Technology processing goes one step beyond for optimal detailing, enhanced durability and high reusability making it well-suited for functional prototyping and direct end-use parts in the automotive, consumer, industrial and electronics markets.

About Flight Technology:
Equipped with an all-new fiber laser in place of a standard CO2 laser founded in standard plastic laser sintering systems, Flight or Fiber Light Technology is capable of delivering a smaller laser spot size with greatly increased power, as well as a more homogenous energy distribution to the powder bed.
With robust processing, Flight Technology is able to achieve full sintering of powder in a significant shorter amount of time, and with improved feature detail compared to other standard plastic laser sintering technologies. Due to the more robust and stable nature of a fiber laser system, Flight Technology™ also provides improved laser longevity which is key when considering ROI for manufacturing applications.
