Oerlikon and Farsoon Technologies Partner to Accelerate AM Adoption in China

Oerlikon, a leading global technology and engineering Group, signed a long-term collaboration agreement with Farsoon Technologies to supply qualified Oerlikon AM metal powders for Farsoon AM systems. The purpose of the collaboration is to increase the adoption of AM in China by providing customers with a combined solution of system hardware and fully certified metal powders.

 The agreement between Oerlikon and Farsoon can establish a new business model for the China AM market. Oerlikon will be the global partner for Farsoon as a preferred and primary metal powder supplier. Farsoon will be qualifying MetcoAdd powders, tailored for AM processes, to Farsoon AM systems. This will enable customers purchasing Farsoon AM systems to receive Oerlikon AM powders at the same time. Farsoon is committed to creating an open platform system for all metal AM systems, which will give end users the freedom to innovate and expand boundaries of the AM technology.

“For new technologies, such as AM, partnerships and the development of new business models are key to unlocking their potential. Working together with Farsoon, a fast growing AM machine manufacturer with a well-established presence in China, can set a new standard in the AM industry to bring integrated quality products and services to customers.”

Florian Mauerer, Head Business Unit AM, Oerlikon.

 The two parties will further collaborate on research and development projects to optimize the process performance for applications, especially for the China market. Furthermore, Oerlikon will work with Farsoon to develop customized alloys for their AM systems in order to accelerate the adoption of AM in industries such as aerospace, power generation, tooling and automotive.
Dr. Xiaoshu Xu, founder of Farsoon added: “We look forward to working with a company known for its excellence and quality in the metal powder industry. Partnering with Oerlikon as one of our preferred material suppliers can guarantee our customers a high level of material quality for their current and future applications.”
