Farsoon and Airbus to foster the development of polymer AM solution for civil aircraft
Aicraft specialist Airbus enters a partnership agreement with Farsoon to explore new solutions for high-performance polymer materials on Farsoon’s AM systems.
As part of this collaboration, Farsoon will optimize processing parameters for new materials while Airbus will take in charge the validation of properties and performance according to the needs of civil aviation requirements.
This announcement follows a recent partnership signed with Ultimaker to produce functional tools for aircrafts. Airbus is a true proponent of additive manufacturing and knows how to exploit every technology to serve its production needs. The aircraft specialist has already exploited various manufacturers’ technologies : 3D Systems, Stratasys and has even managed to send its own 3D Printer in the space.
“We are very excited to start this R&D collaboration with Airbus. As a leading industrial AM solution provider, Farsoon has been pushing towards the transition of AM applications from prototyping to manufacturing.” said Dr. Xu Xiaoshu. “We believe AM technology will be increasingly used in aerospace & aviation manufacturing. In the future, by joining hands with Airbus, Farsoon will be able to contribute to the full workflow for AM production in civil aviation.”
“It is the first time for Airbus to cooperate with Chinese company in polymer AM industry. Airbus has been keep toned with the development of the AM technology, and we are impressed by Farsoon’s capability of innovation and industrial focus.” commented Michel Tran Van: “Airbus is looking for more than the performance of new material. We need to keep in mind what industrializing AM needs, including workflows development, cost management, industrial manufacturing capabilities and speed. With the same goal of industrialization, I look forward to the R&D results of this collaboration, and I believe we will carry out more cooperation in the future.”
