Farsoon Technologies, Changsha, China, has announced the launch of a sixteen-laser metal Additive Manufacturing machine. The FS1521M is a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machine with a build chamber diameter of 1530 mm and height of 850 mm.
Farsoon Technologies, Changsha, China, has announced the launch of a sixteen-laser metal Additive Manufacturing machine. The FS1521M is a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machine with a build chamber diameter of 1530 mm and height of 850 mm. A variant, the FS1521M-U, increases that height to 1650 mm, well suited for those looking to produce large parts for oil & gas and aerospace applications.
The FS1521M and FS1521M-U are also available with square build cartridge configurations, with the larger FS1521M-U model having a build volume of 3,862 litres, reported to be one of the largest PBF-LB machines on the market.
Each of the sixteen fibre lasers is rated at 500 W and, due to the new calibration algorithms, each laser’s operation and overlap can be precisely controlled to ensure uniform mechanical properties throughout the build area. The advanced multi-laser scanning strategies offers optional modes towards efficiency, quality, or balanced performance for different manufacturing needs.
The FS1521M series has a high build rate of up to 400 cm³/h (for example, 3.27kg/hr in Inconel) and features innovative gas flow design, ensuring stable, real-time particle removal throughout the large platform. Parallel permanent filtration systems allow uninterrupted operations for longer build times.
The contactless, closed-loop powder handling system includes powder supply, recycling and sieving conducted under a fully inert gas-protected system for operational safety. Thanks to its modular and redundant powder container design, the system offers continuous feeding and collection of overflow powder, streamlining the powder management process.
Farsoon confirmed that multiple FS1521M systems have already been installed at the sites of manufacturing customers in China.
