“Our goal has always been to expand the scope of metal AM applications, which has generally been limited by the economics of the process. The total cost of ownership coupled with the productivity of the AM systems we use is the biggest factor in defining which applications areas we can add value in,” said Jon Meyer, CEO of APWORKS GmbH,” added Meyer.
“We believe that the Farsoon FS422M-H-4 machine offers us a step change in overall cost of ownership and productivity, enabling us to target applications which were previously not economically attractive. Through this cooperation with Farsoon we intend to further scale the scope of our business, empowering more customers to reap the benefits that this technology has to offer,” Meyer continued.
The collaborative efforts between Farsoon Europe GmbH and APWORKS GmbH extend beyond the immediate transaction, focusing on long-term innovation, increased production capacity, reliable and sustainable series production, and the optimisation of Scalmalloy processing. These advancements aim to pioneer new AM applications in the aerospace industry.
