Formlabs Fuse 1

The hugely respected desktop 3D printer manufacturer, Formlabs, has launched a Selected Laser Sintering (SLS) system. Reaching levels acceptable for industrial applications, this benchtop printer has incorporated every easy-to-use hardware and software option available to give the user a highly efficient SLS 3D printer.

Printing in Formlabs’ own Nylon 12 powder unique to the Fuse 1, users can expect parts exhibiting fine detail along with high environmental stability and strength. Ideal features for functional prototypes and parts with complex geometries.

Key Features

  • A 30% material refresh rate means you can print with up to 70% recycled powder, indefinitely. Fuse Sift’s sieve filters out particles to be remixed with new powder and reused in future prints.
  • A negative air pressure system within the FUSE Sift keeps powder inside while enabling open access and easy cleanup.
  • Fuse Sift will dispense and mix used and new powder automatically so you can reduce waste and control your powder supply.
  • Reduce downtime by transferring modular build chambers and powder cartridges between the Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift for a nonstop, cyclical workflow.
  • The Fuse Sift includes a set of finishing tools to help you clean excess powder from parts with ease.

Powder recovery

After the part is built, recovery of the powder is by vacuum extraction in the Fuse Sift recovery station. This unit is separate to the printer and ensures maximum safety in the environment containing the powder. The required operational level of the anti-static dissipative vacuum is NFPA 652 – Class II Division 2. Using accessories such as the hose, the vacuum can also be used to clean the build chamber and sifter mesh as well as keeping the general area clear of loose powder.

Powder cartridge

For near continuous use, it is possible to transfer the powder cartridges and build chambers between the Fuse 1 3D Printer and the Fuse Sift recovery station. Powder from the Fuse Sift can be recycled into the Fuse 1 hopper, with the powder cartridge doubling-up as a mixing containing to combine the new and recycled powder.
