Prodways signs a service partnership agreement with LSS

After the launch of its new range of selective laser sintering industrial printers, the « Prodways powered by Farsoon » ProMaker P series, Prodways, a subsidiary of Groupe Gorgé, announces the signature of a partnership agreement with LSS. LSS (Laser Sintering Services) is the specialist European provider of services, maintenance and process improvements for selective laser sintering using polymer powders.

Under this partnership, LSS will contribute its maintenance, application development and R&D skills to the range of « Prodways powered by Farsoon » selective laser sintering industrial printers using polymer powders. LSS will ensure the maintenance of ProMaker P series printers across Europe and will share its R&D and application expertise with that of Hunan Farsoon Tech Ltd and Prodways to develop the range of selective laser sintering printers.

This partnership complements the announcement made in late September of the substantial stake acquired in Varia 3D, based in Texas (United States). Varia 3D, whose founders are recognized experts in selective laser sintering technology for plastic and metal powders, has been brought in to strengthen the Prodways Americas teams. This stake has already enabled Prodways to extend its footprint in the United States.

Drawing on LSS’s expertise, Prodways will now be able to offer a very high level of service on its printer range in Europe.

Philippe Laude, CEO of Prodways Group, said the following:
« Prodways is positioning itself as a key player in selective laser sintering using polymer powders. This tripartite partnership between Prodways, Hunan Farsoon and LSS enables us to offer the best levels of service and maintenance on this new range, and to combine the R&D and application development resources of all three companies to continue to develop the « Prodways powered by Farsoon » range of printers. »
