Farsoon Technologies, headquartered in Changsha, Hunan, China, reports that, as of the end of June 2021, the total number of installed Farsoon Additive Manufacturing machines at customer sites has surpassed 500. Farsoon’s line of AM machines, first introduced in 2015, has benefitted from the rising civil aerospace industry and reports an even split between its installed base of metal and polymer machines.

“We are seeing an increasing demand of large volume functional parts fabrication, especially in aerospace and automotive industries, using specialised materials in order to achieve designated performance tolerances, mechanical properties and reliability under a variety of operational conditions,” stated Don Xu, Director of Farsoon’s Global Business Group.

“In order to address customers’ pain points around size, productivity and quality, Farsoon has been introducing the multi-lasers, large-format metal systems FS421M, FS621M, as well as the latest FS721M to the market,” he continued. “As of today, Farsoon has installed more than eighty large-format metal systems (build platform >400mm) in the aerospace and automotive industries.”

In the first half of 2021, Farsoon’s global team expanded from 300 to 400, with significant growth in technology and development, technical support and manufacturing.
