Farsoon Launches FS811M 12-Laser, Large-Format LPBF Metal 3D Printer

SHANGHAI, China, May 9, 2024 – TCT Asia – Farsoon is excited to introduce to global market the FS811M metal powder bed fusion series platform with ultimate build volume featuring up to 12 fiber lasers. The FS811M series boasts a build volume of 840 x 840 mm² with Z height 960mm for high volume manufacturing capability. The FS811M platform can be equipped with robust 6, 8, 10 or 12 x 500-watt fiber lasers.

“Being the latest additional to Farsoon’s metal 3D printer portfolio, the FS811M grew out of a co-innovation project with our key industry customers operating multiple FS621M systems”, says Wenyu Guo, Vice-director of Farsoon metal product line management, “We’ve spent the past 2 years developing and optimizing the FS811M platform for specific application projects. Starting 1 year ago we start to see the rapidly expanding large-format Metal 3D printing application in aerospace, oil & gas, energy and automotive sectors, the industry customers are drawing greater requirements for manufacturing efficiency, reliability, and larger build size than FS621M. This is when we decide to fully commercialize the FS811M platform to scale up metal series production.”

True Production Tool

With an XY build platform size of 840 × 840mm and vertical axis of 960mm, the FS811M features an ultimate build volume of 677 Liters – one of the largest on metal laser powder bed fusion market. The outstanding Z height opens many new manufacturing possibilities in large-scale industrial applications favor larger Z axis aerospace & aviation, oil & gas and more. Equipped with up to 12 robust fiber lasers, high-speed galvo system boosts high production yield up to 300cm3/h. The advanced multi-laser scanning strategy enables high efficiency distribution, and calibration accuracy in overlapping area for uniformed mechanical properties of a single over-sized object, or volume-production parts throughout the large build platform.

Quality + Reliability

The FS811M platform features many innovative designs bringing your manufacturing dreams into quality parts. The all-new multi-layer gas flow with advanced wind-wall design ensuring real-time particle removal throughout the whole oversized chamber. The excellent air tightness design of FS811M build chamber enables extreme oxygen content, and low inert gas consumption during the build process, ensuring the part quality consistency while reduce operational costs. The powerful permanent filtration system allows uninterrupted, reliable process for extreme build times.

Operation Ease

The FS811M build chamber is equipped with both front and rear doors for ease of operation and maintenance. Once the build is completed, the part cylinder can be transferred to powder breakout station and part extract station via an integrated conveyor system. The breakout station is fully enclosed and can be accessed through glove boxes on all 4 sides, allowing multiple operators for powder removal and detail cleaning under safe inert atmosphere.

The FS811M powder handling system shares a common modular powder container design for loading, recycling and sieving under inert gas protection offering continuous powder supply to the build job and the ability to easily monitor powder quality. Like all Farsoon systems, the FS811M is a truly open platform offers the user flexibility to tailor process parameters for industrial applications and cost-competitive metal additive manufacturing.

Farsoon will present FS811M 10-laser system at Hall 7.1 Booth 7H05, TCT Asia 2024, which take place from May 7th to 9th in Shanghai, China. Customers who interested in large-format, series metal AM production solutions are welcome to view the system in person! European and North American customers are welcome to join us later at Rapid. Tech 3D 2024 Booth 2-305 in Erfurt, Germany, or Rapid + TCT 2024 Booth 2600 in Los Angeles for more information.
