Chinese 3D printing company Farsoon Technologies has just announced that it will, as of now, be offering its direct-to-consumer metal additive manufacturing solutions to the North American market through its new branch, Farsoon Americas.

Founded in 2009 as Hunan Farsoon High-tech Co., Ltd, Farsoon had staked its place within the metal additive manufacturing field, largely through its laser sintering 3D printing systems. The company’s founder, Dr. Xu Xiaoshu, helped pioneer laser sintering technology, and with over a decade of experience in the field, has been crucial to the advancement of SLS 3D printing.

Farsoon Americas, which will further expand the scope of the Chinese 3D printing company, will be headed by one Bob Evans, who is described by the company as “an industry veteran with knowledge and experience that covers the full spectrum of technologies, materials, and industrial applications.” Evans will be based in the U.S. in order to introduce and promote sales for Farsoon Technologies on the North American continent. Specifically, Evans and the Farsoon Americas team will be pushing the company’s line of metal additive manufacturing systems, which have gained a reputation globally.

Evans expressed excitement about the upcoming opportunity, saying: “I am excited to be a part of Farsoon and to bring their products to the American market. Farsoon is able to deliver a superior product at a price that competitors can’t match—I know the American market is hungry for it. From the beginning, I was impressed by Farsoon’s metal machines…to be able to offer systems of this caliber for [under $400,000] is going to make Farsoon a power player.”

Farsoon Technologies, which has developed a number of metal and plastic additive manufacturing systems, also recently partnered with Germany-based Laser Sintering Service (LSS). The new partnership, which was announced at industrial 3D printing expo formnext 2016, established LSS as Farsoon’s European distributor, service support, and its European Research and Development Center. Farsoon Technologies also debuted its newest 403P series plastic laser sintering system, specially designed to process PA6 material, at formnext.

Other recent Farsoon partners include Sinopec Baling Petrochemical Company, with whom Farsoon is working on developing new and innovative additive manufacturing materials, and Prodways, whose Promaker P series of industrial 3D printers was developed with Farsoon.
