India’s leading 3D Printing and additive manufacturing group, Imaginarium, launched Fuse 1 from Formlabs for the first time in India on 18th July during IMTEX held at the International Exhibition Centre Bangalore, organized by the Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA).
Fuse 1 is the world’s first benchtop high-performance Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printer that enables engineers, designers and manufacturers at all levels to rethink product development, hybrid manufacturing, and end-use production. The Fuse 1 brings powerful Surface Armor technology, a 30% powder refresh rate and the new versatile Nylon 12 powder to deliver a simplified industrial 3D Printing workflow at a fraction of the cost of traditional industrial SLS Printers. It is designed for minimal upkeep and has a full-colour touchscreen interface that guides the user through every step of Printing and maintenance. From print setup to powder recovery, the easy-to-use hardware and software are designed to maximize the firm’s efficiency at every process step. Additionally, Formlabs has introduced Fuse Sift, a post-processing system for the Fuse 1, and Nylon 12 Powder, Formlabs’ first powder material for Fuse 1, to provide users with a straightforward end-to-end SLS workflow.
SLS technology is one of the most trusted technology for strong, functional prototypes and end-use parts. However, the high cost and complexity of the process made it difficult to be used by clients all over. With the introduction of Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift, high-performance SLS would finally be within reach for all as it is not only affordable but also easy to use.
Mr Samkitt Shah, Business Head, Imaginarium Solutions, said, “We are glad to be the ones launching Fuse 1. The reduced equipment cost and efficient powder recycling make Fuse 1 the smartest choice for industrial quality SLS 3D Printing. Designed for non-stop throughput, Fuse 1 provides reliable and consistent Printing every time.”
On the auspicious occasion of the Fuse 1 launch, Formlabs Indian Channel Sales Manager Vishwanath Sridhar Harpanahalli stated Imaginarium as their value-added partner owing to the experience-rich team. He mentioned that before stepping into the world of 3D Printing, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration, and Imaginarium is apt for it. Right from suggesting to the clients the best powder or resins for their applications to helping them choose the right 3D Printing technology to Printing and also the post-sales support. Imaginarium is Formlabs certified, and the team members are well-trained to provide support to clients and assist them with all the technical know-how. He also said that Formlabs has a mission to make 3D Printing affordable and easy to use so anyone can make anything. The Fuse 1 3D Printer perfectly fits into the mission statement.
