Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Farsoon Technologies, a leading supplier of plastic laser sintering and metal laser melting systems, is reporting doubled revenue growth in the Chinese market during the first three quarters of 2020, compared to the same period of time in the previous year. The company expects significant growth through the end of the year.

In the latter half of 2019, with the rapid raising industrial additive manufacturing applications in China, Farsoon made significant progress with increasing sales orders in major industries such as aerospace, manufacturing, and molding. All these contributed to revenues in the first three quarters of 2020 as well.

To date, multiple FS621M systems have been installed at various Chinese large-scale manufacturing customers; and the FS421M has recorded cumulative sales of over 30 systems globally. Earlier this month, one of Farsoon’s key industry partners, Falcontech, a leading manufacturing service provider in the metal additive market, received its 20th Farsoon metal system, of which 19 are large-format Farsoon FS621M and FS421M systems – well on the way to their target of 50 machines for Falcontech’s proposed Super AM Factory expansion plan.

Farsoon’s flagship plastic production platform 403P also saw increasing multiple-machine orders in both China and the international markets. Advantages including high-productivity, ease of use, open configurations and economics have helped customers to achieve high-volume, industrial-scale plastic AM production. WeNext, a key production and prototyping customer, currently has a total of 11 Farsoon 403P and Flight 403P in operation at their new AM facility.
