Farsoon and TIGER Coatings launch TIGITAL 3D-Set 371 thermoset for SLS

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Industrial-grade additive manufacturing machine supplier Farsoon and 3D material solution innovator TIGER finalized the development of thermoset material TIGITAL 3D-Set 371 for plastic laser sintering on Farsoon’s HT252P platform.

A key feature of parts fabricated with these powders is flame retardancy, which is a major requirement for innovation for enabling functional applications. The innovative partnership combines TIGER’s expertise in thermoset material engineering and surface finishing solutions, with Farsoon’s truly open plastic additive manufacturing platform to offer a novel material-machine solution for expanding industrial markets.

Announced in November 2019, TIGER and 3D printing parts manufacturer Ricoh Products UK started a collaborative partnership on materials, processing, and application development to offer end-to-end additive manufacturing services. With intensive joint material development on Farsoon’s ST252P systems at and TIGER, new generation of high performance, flame-retardant thermoset material TIGITAL 3D-Set PPP 371 will be formally introduced to the market by end of November 2020. To celebrate the launch of this new material, Ricoh and TIGER hosted a webinar session offering an overview on the capabilities and advantages of 3D printed thermoset material for end-use parts.

TIGITAL 3D-Set 371 TIGER TIGITAL’s innovative PPP 371 thermoset material solutions for additive manufacturing offers end-use functional parts with extraordinary thermal and mechanical performance, good electronic isolation, superior dimensional stability, and chemical resistance which enable industrial applications and projects amongst automotive, electronics, transportation, and aerospace industries. The low printing temperatures of the material is in line with an environmentally friendly production process. In addition, TIGITAL 3D-Set PPP 371 can be used to produce brilliant, full-colored functional parts with optimal laser sintering quality.

The development cycle of this advanced thermoset material was accelerated by the versatile and open Farsoon HT252P platform. The fast scanning speed of the HT252P enables rapid batch production cycle of testing parts within less than 6 hours. Its compact, platform size (250×250 mm) is an optimal fit for new material development at an economic cost and minimal powder waste. Farsoon’s open platform, which also features a “parameter-editor” included in the software package, offered TIGER the maximum operational flexibility and capability in developing customized parameter combinations during the development process.
