Prodways P2000 SD and P4000 SD.
Following its recent announcement of a collaboration with Chinese additive manufacturing company, Hunan Farsoon Tech Ltd., Prodways is set to launch its new range of industrial laser sintering systems at formnext powered by TCT in Frankfurt next week.
The new range of ProMaker P series laser 3D printers are the result of an R&D partnership with Farsoon to provide a true alternative to current machines on the market.
A joint R&D effort from teams at Prodways, Norge and Farsoon, the "Prodways powered by Farsoon" range stands out from current standards for its high thermal stability offering optimised mechanical properties, combined with a fully digital, ultra-fast and highly accurate laser scanning system. The integration of these recent technological advances enables Prodways to offer a comprehensive range of solutions guaranteeing high productivity combined with the best levels of precision and quality.
The five machines will be priced between 200.000€ and 450.000€ and available in two families, the ProMaker P2000 series and ProMaker 4000 series.
In a press release, Prodways describes the two families: “The range of ProMaker P2000 series printers provides top industrial performance in a compact format and offers a high-temperature version enabling printing with high-performance materials at temperatures of up to 220°C, thereby opening up the possibility of new industrial applications.”
“The range of ProMaker P4000 series printers offers exclusive industrial production capacity with wide platforms and high productivity to print high-precision parts.”
To complement the new range of printers, Prodways is also launching its first range of PA12 powders for laser sintering offering high-performance mechanical properties for a range of demanding applications. These will include:
- PA12–S 1300 – PA12 type nylon powder ideal for printing complex parts, in particular those used in the aerospace and automotive industries
- PA12-GF 2500 – PA12 type powder, fibreglass-reinforced for parts requiring more rigidity and better resistance to high temperatures
- PA12-CF 6500 – PA12 type powder, carbon-reinforced for greater resistance
- PA12-MF 6150 – PA12 type powder, reinforced with mineral fibres for smooth surfaces and high resistance to heat distortion
Alongside these new materials, Prodways is offering a complete open platform strategy for materials to promote the development of new materials for industrial customers and research institutes.
Visitors will be able to see one of the ProMaker P4000 machines on the Prodways booth at formnext. The event takes place on the 17th-20th November in Hall 3 of the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. Register for your ticket here.
