System Solutions for 3-D Printing

PA Powder for Selective Laser Sintering

BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, Farsoon Hi-tech Co. Ltd., Hunan, China, a manufacturer of selective laser sintering and melting, and Laser-Sinter-Service GmbH (LSS), Holzwickede, Germany,a supplier of support and field service for additive manufacturing (AM) equipment are cooperating to develop integral solutions for materials, printers, technology and service for 3-D printing that can be tailored to meet individual customer needs.

In this cooperation, BASF has developed a polyamide-6 powder for laser sintering processes which can be jointly adapted with partners and customers for specific applications. Objects made of this innovative material are distinguished by higher strength and heat stability than objects made of the previously used polyamide-12.

"We offer an open platform where customers are free to use materials of any manufacturer," explains Guido Elbrecht, Managing Director at LSS. "Furthermore our collaboration with BASF and Farsoon is open for potential customers to jointly develop solutions for functional applications where materials, equipment and processing are aligned." LSS supports its customers with consulting, engineering and services for additive manufacturing solutions. With its expertise LSS ensures the successful implementation and production of customer applications using BASF’s new PA6 materials on Farsoon's 3-D printers.
