SHANGHAI, CHINA: BASF SE and Farsoon Technologies, a leading industrial 3D printing solution provider, have signed a strategic agreement to offer customers a new polyamide (PA) based 3D printing material solution in China.

With the launch of BASF Ultrasint PA6 X043 Black, manufacturers can produce components with optimized shapes, reduced weight, and with the ability to withstand tough environments. This high-performance material will create new possibilities for a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive and consumer.

Ultrasint PA6 X043 Black offers high strength, good recyclability and a high heat distortion temperature, at a competitive cost. Combined with Farsoon’s new continuous additive manufacturing solutions (CAMS) – HT1001P, HT252P, ST252P, HT403P – this material can help customers develop high-performance components and significantly increase productivity.

“This new breakthrough in 3D printing materials makes direct manufacturing possible, which further accelerates the industrialization of 3D printing in China. In the future, Farsoon will continue to work closely with BASF to help customers enhance their equipment and material performance while reducing production costs. We aim to offer customers a true additive manufacturing solution,” said Dr Xu Xiao Shu, founder and chairman of Farsoon.

"BASF is dedicated to developing high-performance 3D printing materials like the Ultrasint PA6 series. We provide an open platform by working with our partners, such as Farsoon, to develop competitive 3D printing material solutions to realize future customer needs for mass production," added Michael Tang, senior business development manager of BASF 3D-Printing Asia Pacific.

BASF’s Ultrasint PA6 X043 Black material will be presented at TCT Asia 2018.
