On January 16, the Japanese Golf Design company’s new 3D printing titanium alloy golf club head—“Designer” made its international premiere in Japan , and began taking reservations in China on January 18.
The Designer adopted the metal 3D printing technology , successfully broke through the design limitations, achieved the precise distance and extraordinary fault tolerance of titanium alloy golf club head products, and filed for numerous patents after more than 1600 days of research and development exploration, more than 1000 times of testing, and 19 times of performance optimization. novel developments in the production and design processes.
For the Designer brand, using 3D printing to produce golf club heads with exceptional performance is a creative breakthrough. High-speed club face is designed by Designer using an incredibly robust titanium alloy, and it is mass-produced using Farsoon metal 3D printing technology. It increases the golf club head’s surface strength and reaches previously unheard-of performance while retaining excellent ductility. Overcoming the constraints of design, it is no longer dependent on the conventional rod-head exoskeleton for support. As a result, the intricate structure is formed in a single body, flawlessly displaying the intricate inner cavity structure of the spider web and producing a surface that is stronger, thinner, and more complex.
The golf club’s bottom, inner sides, and crown come together to form a seamless three-dimensional skeleton，which is seamlessly formed by 3D printing technology. The new design enhances aerodynamics and stability by reducing drag and features a 3D complex that allows air to flow through for faster speeds and longer distances. Its ultra-high resistance center of gravity design achieves an extremely high elastic effect, giving the hitter a more sensitive sense of experience and hitting a longer distance.
It is reported that in the field of golf products, the traditional way of producing golf club head blanks needs to go through multiple stages, including design, styling, mold opening, etc. While 3D printing rod head blanks takes only one week, the cycle for developing a new product takes 45 to 70 days; ; The traditional mold production cost is approximately 8500~14000 US dollars, and it is used 8000–10000 times., A cylinder can print 6–8 products when using the Farsoon metal additive manufacturing equipment FS200M . By using this equipment, the production efficiency can be increased by more than 60%.
The market for golf products has gained fresh life thanks to 3D printing technology, which is igniting a new wave. Major brands will compete in the upcoming phase to introduce golf items that benefit from 3D printing, raising the bar for innovation across the board for the sector.
