Oqton, a software provider helping manufacturers increase innovation and efficiency by intelligently automating production, has entered a partnership with Farsoon Technologies, a global manufacturer and supplier of industrial-level polymer and metal LPBF systems. The combination of the technology leadership and expertise of these two organizations is intended to enable a complete manufacturing workflow – from design through to production – within a single software solution.

Oqton’s AM software portfolio – comprising 3DXpert, Amphyon, and Manufacturing OS – addresses the entire workflow. This includes leveraging 3DXpert for design optimization and toolpath planning, Amphyon for process simulation to improve print strategies, and its AI-powered Manufacturing OS platform running order optimization and scheduling, monitoring, and management.

As we move forward, we intend to deepen our technical collaboration, further helping our customers achieve their desired results with improved productivity.”
