Farsoon and Airbus sign a deal on R&D for polymer AM

Farsoon Technologies and Airbus (Beijing) Engineering Centre Co., LTD (ABEC) sign a collaboration contract establishing a joint research and development program for polymer additive manufacturing in civil aviation. This marks Airbus, a global industry – leader in the aerospace sector, first collaboration with a Chinese company in the polymer AM field.

Based on this collaboration, Airbus and Farsoon will combine and share their collective expertise to research and development a high-performance polymer material for civil aircraft on Farsoon’s AM systems. Furthermore, Farsoon will fine tune and optimize processing parameters for the new material on Farsoon’s open platform systems, which offers users full access to processing parameters; while Airbus will be validating the properties and performance according to the needs of civil aviation requirements. Thanks to Farsoon’s “Open for Industry” company philosophy, collaborations with companies such as Airbus will have the freedom to explore future innovation, expanding industrial application for the AM industry.
