Shenzhen Wenext Technology Co., ltd. (Wenext) and Guangdong Hanbang 3D Tech Co.Ltd (CBD), hosted a strategic cooperation agreement signing ceremony to celebrate an order for 30 HBD-350T mid-size metal L-PBF systems to be installed at Wenext. This agreement will further expand the production capabilities of one of China’s largest AM and on-demand manufacturing service providers.
Mr. Lu Xueyuan, Founder and Chairman of Wenext, Mr. Zhang Shuhao, Deputy General Manager and General Manager of Wenext’s Additive Manufacturing Division, Mr. Liu Jianye, Founder and General Manager of HBD, and Ms. Mao Yi, Managing Director General of Shanghai Hanbang United 3D Tech Co., Ltd., attended the meeting and the signing ceremony. Mr. Zhang Shuhao and Ms. Mao Yi signed the strategic cooperation agreement on behalf of both parties.
In this strategic cooperation, centered on the order of 30 HBD-350T machines, both parties are committed to advancing the digitalization of manufacturing and the production of small batches at large scale. By leveraging and sharing best practices, both parties expect to lead the evolution of the manufacturing industry. Senior leaders of both companies are confident and have high expectations for future cooperation, providing more opportunities and win-win situations for both parties.
Explaining why Wenext chose to cooperate with HBD for this strategic cooperation, Mr. Zhang Shuhao, Deputy General Manager and General Manager of Wenext’s Additive Manufacturing Division, said, “Wenext is a digital manufacturing innovation factory at large scale, with about one thousand non-metal 3D printing equipment, CNC machining centers, sheet metal processing equipment, mold processing equipment and inspection equipment, and it is is a highly information-based digital manufacturing technology enterprise with the development and operation of information-based software platform, online and offline marketing services, innovative design and treatment. In order to meet customer demand for metal 3D printing services, it is necessary to find a company that has the strength and can grow with Wenext.
Wenext qualified HBD as a metal 3D printing company that focuses on equipment and technology and provides a complete set of technical solutions such as equipment, software, materials and printing processes. Equipment such as HBD-350T system has achieved large sales and increasing market share, it is considered mature and stable, especially at the industrial end, for parts such as molds, with stable stitched printing using dual lasers in mold applications, and leading in production efficiency. HBD’s proprietary equipment software, data processing software and intelligent management software functions are deeply integrated, and can be seamlessly connected with Wenext’s proprietary information software platform, to further increase manufacturing efficiency and intelligence.
“HBD and Wenext are both young teams with a passion for the industry and the future, and both companies are in a rapid development stage,” said Ms. Mao Yi, general manager of Shanghai Hanbang United 3D Tech Co., ltd. , “We have seen that Wenext has just closed a quality financing of 55 million dollars, a sign of the recognition of Wenext and this industry by the capital markets. From the equipment side, HBD is committed to helping Wenext quickly realize the continuous upgrading of technology and process equipment, relying on advanced industrial machinery and smart factories for large-scale applications. Both parties will collaborate deeply on the software. HBD has developed equipment operation software, data processing software and intelligent management software, which can seamlessly connect with the information software platform developed by Wenext. This seamless connection will enable lean management and integrate 3D printing with the Internet, to realize the vertical integration of network, control system, management software and data platform. By optimizing manufacturing model management and innovation, we will improve manufacturing efficiency, expand product service capabilities, improve customer value, and create a new ecosystem of 3D printing manufacturing models, models services and applications.
