Farsoon unveils the FS273M metal system—the next generation of FS271M—which offers single- or dual-laser options for commercial orders. Farsoon’s FS273M is designated to address productivity, cost-efficiency, and industrial workflow in metal additive manufacturing. With an industrial-sized 275×275×355mm build envelope, the FS273M is a production tool of larger volume parts with a wide range of industrial metal materials.
“Farsoon’s latest FS273M is the next generation of our medium-sized metal system FS271M, which was first introduced to market in 2015,” says Don Xu, director of Farsoon Global business Group and managing director of Farsoon Americas Corp. “We’ve spent the past 6 years optimizing the productivity, performance of the machine through continuous collaboration with our industrial partners; meanwhile keep pushing the true industrialization of the metal additive manufacturing by reducing customers' cost of operation, especially for tight margin industries like molds and tooling.”
The new FS273M has advanced dual-laser scanning strategy and calibration algorithms that offer improved build volume rate compared to single-laser configuration, the company reports. The enhanced communication signal control and the new re-coater design enables robust operational speeds and stable powder delivery throughout the whole manufacturing process.
The FS273M features an integrated, long-lasting filtration system that allows for extended operation time for longer builds and reduces the cost of filter changes. Features such as preheated base-plate, robust recoating operations, removable overflow containers and a powder supply sufficient for a full build ensure the ease of operation and good serviceability.
