Farsoon Technologies, headquartered in Changsha, Hunan, China, has introduced the FS273M metal Additive Manufacturing machine – the next generation of its FS271M – to the global market for commercial orders.

The FS273M, a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) AM machine, is designed to address productivity, cost efficiency, and industrial workflow in metal AM and features a build envelope of 275 x 275 x 355 mm. The machine features many updates that hope to enable streamlined metal production workflow with a wide range of industrial metal materials.

The advanced dual-laser scanning strategy and calibration algorithm offer build volume rate said to be improved by up to two times, compared to the single-laser configuration. The enhanced communication signal control and the new re-coater design reputedly enables robust operational speeds and stable powder delivery throughout the whole manufacturing process.

Additionally, the FS273M features an integrated, long-lasting filtration system which allows for extended operation time for longer builds and reducing the cost of filter changes. Features such as preheated base-plate, robust recoating operations, removable overflow containers, and a powder supply sufficient for a full build enable the ease of operation and good serviceability.

“Farsoon’s latest FS273M is the next generation of our medium-sized metal system FS271M, which was first introduced to market in 2015,” stated Don Xu, Director of Farsoon Global business Group and Managing Director of Farsoon Americas Corp. “We’ve spent the past six years optimising the productivity, performance of the machine through continuous collaboration with our industrial partners; meanwhile keep pushing the true industrialisation of metal AM by reducing customers’ cost of operation, especially for tight margin industries like moulds & tooling.”
