The pioneering metal additive manufacturing firm Falcontech has announced plans to increase its production numbers. Working with China-based Farsoon, they shall be buying 50 Metal Additive Manufacturing printers that will drive their dream of establishing a mega 3D printing empire.
In the short term, however, they hope to be having a working capacity of 20 printers by December. Currently, the firm has in its possession various Farsoon systems that include FS420M, FS301M ( which was developed in response to needs of industrial end-users), and the FS271M. They also have a customised big format system with a building envelope of 620 x 620 x 1100 mm.
This won’t be the first time the two China Based firms are working together. Farsoon benefited financially from Falcontech in 2019 in the development of its 3D printing technology. That partnership saw the two companies commence work on developing larger machines that will be employed in the aerospace sector.
They have also been working towards enhancing the product specifications for the powders being used in Falcontech’s 3D printing. Ultimately the firm hopes that the additional machines will improve their output and place them in a better position to provide advanced solutions to their clients as well as take on larger projects.
The two firms plan to use their cumulative experiences in the industry to come up with the most robust solutions. By working on the printing specifications, materials used, and the technical designs, they aim at having a prototype that meets the best print standards.
Farsoon has built its operating principles on having open integrity towards the materials they work with. This gives them a leeway when it comes to meeting clients’ needs and in the choice of materials, they can work with. For their work in the aerospace industry, they have designed applications that use titanium alloys, Aluminum alloys, and nickel-based alloys.
The Farsoon systems at Falcontech have delivered quality in terms of end products and have proven to offer unmatched output. As demand from clients grows, the firm is hoping to shorten the wait times while they tackle more orders.
