Chinese 3D printing company Farsoon Technologies is expanding into a new national market through a distribution partnership with Japan 3D Printer Co. Ltd. The Tokyo-based company, a supplier of industrial additive manufacturing solutions, will now sell Farsoon’s SLS 3D printers on the Japanese market.
To kick start the partnership, Japan 3D Printer Co. Ltd will install Farsoon’s high-temperature HT403P 3D printer at its Demo Center, where customers will be able to see the industrial SLS technology first hand. According to the distribution firm, the Japanese market has eagerly adopted fused filament fabrication technologies and is ripe for other industrial 3D printing solutions such as SLS.
“By working closely with industrial customers and taking their manufacturing pain points, we strive to bringing the latest 3D printing technology that can best suit Japanese market,” said Kitagawa Shihaku, CEO and founder of Japan 3D Printer Co., Ltd. “FDM has been a major 3D printing technology in Japan for the past years; however, with the rapidly growing engineering demands, we have been keep looking for new plastic additive technologies for manufacture high-performance functional parts.
