With TCT Asia 2018 kicking off, it’s been a busy week for the 3D printing industry, marked by many new partnerships, materials, and 3D printing technologies. Earlier today, Chinese company DediBot even presented a flying 3D printer!

The latest news comes from Chinese 3D printer developer Farsoon, which has announced a new partnership with UK company Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT). Through the collaboration, AMT will provide Farsoon with post-processing solutions for its plastic and metal-based additive manufacturing systems.

According to Farsoon, AMT’s automated post-processing systems will compliment its own 3D printers by offering users smoothing and de-powdering tools.

“AMT is delighted to enter into this agreement to supply our post-processing technology and solutions to Farsoon Technology,” said Joseph Crabtree, CEO of AMT. “The development of Farsoon’s continuous additive manufacturing is groundbreaking and our involvement in assisting the delivery of this technology is very exciting. Our companies have similar philosophies and approach, making working together a pleasure.”

Farsoon is currently preparing to launch its Continuous Additive Manufacturing Solution (CAMS) 3D printing systems, which promise faster speeds, greater throughput, more cost savings and increased automation. Combined with AMT’s automated post-processing technologies, Farsoon says its CAMS 3D printing tech will have even better production workflow. Farsoon’s existing 3D printers will also benefit from the collaboration.

“We are very excited to be working with AMT to provide an end-to-end solution for additive,” commented Don Xu, Farsoon Technologies Director of Global Business. “We have seen a definite movement both in China as well as globally of the additive industry moving towards manufacturing and coupled with that an increased demand for more streamlined post-processing solutions. AMT’s expertise in this field combined with Farsoon’s expertise in additive create a strong team with truly innovative solutions.”

AMT’s PostPro3D machine is purportedly the first automated smoothing machine for 3D printed parts made from plastic. But it also manufactures and develops other post-processing tech. Last year, it received a grant of £625,000 from Innovate UK to develop a 3D printing post-processing system for 3D printed polymer parts.

At TCT Asia 2018, Farsoon also announced a new polyamide 3D printing material with chemical company BASF: Ultrasint PA6 X043, as well as a new long-term partnership with tech group Oerlikon, which will supply certified metal 3D printing powders for Farsoon additive manufacturing systems. The goal of the collaboration is to accelerate and expand the adoption of metal 3D printing in China.
