APWORKS Picks Farsoon’s FS422M-H-4 L-PBF AM System for 3D Metal Parts Production

TAUFKIRCHEN and STUTTGART, Germany, Jan 2, 2024 – After careful and thorough evaluation, APWORKS made the strategic decision to procure a state-of-the-art Laser-Powder-Bed-Fusion (L-PBF) system from Farsoon for additive manufacturing of metal components. The culmination of this decision materialized as the much-anticipated FS422M-H-4 system arrived, marking a momentous occasion akin to the receipt of an impressive holiday gift just before Christmas. This cutting-edge technology promises to propel APWORKS into a new era of advanced manufacturing, enabling the production of intricate metal parts with precision and efficiency. The timely delivery aligns seamlessly with the festive spirit, underscoring the significance of this transaction in shaping the future capabilities of APWORKS in the realm of additive manufacturing.

“We are very excited to take this step with FARSOON. We believe that it will enable us to scale our production of high-quality Scalmalloy parts in the most economical way possible. For the last ten years we have focused on developing applications of Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) which add value for our customers. We design and produce products with the highest performance and quality, supporting customers across a wide range of industries. Our goal has always been to expand the scope of Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) applications, which has generally been limited by the economics of the process. The total cost of ownership coupled with the productivity of the AM systems we use is the biggest factor in defining which applications areas we can add value in. We believe that the Farsoon FS422M-H-4 machine offers us a step change in overall cost of ownership and productivity, enabling us to target applications which were previously not economically attractive. Through this cooperation with Farsoon we intend to further scale the scope of our business, empowering more customers to reap the benefits that this technology has to offer.” said Jon Meyer, CEO of APWORKS GmbH.

The collaborative efforts between FARSOON Europe GmbH and APWORKS GmbH extend beyond the immediate transaction, focusing on long-term innovation, increased production capacity, reliable and sustainable series production, and the optimization of Scalmalloy processing for groundbreaking additive manufacturing applications in the aerospace industry.
