HP Inc. Expands Its 3D Printing Footprint in ChinaJune 28, 2018
HP recently partnered with Guangdong 3D Printing Collaborative Innovation Platform to open a new 3D printing center in China. The Lanwan Intelligence-HP Multi-Jet Fusion Technology Mass Manufacturing Center, located in the town of Dali, will host HP's largest ever deployment of production-grade 3D printers in Asia.
The center, which will be powered by 10 HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D printing systems, will provide production-grade components and prototypes for manufacturers of cars, consumer goods and other products.
"By deploying HP's Multi-Jet Fusion technology in our new digital manufacturing center in China, we can better — and more quickly — deliver cost-effective and production-grade parts to our customers," says Luo Jun, executive director of the China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance and president of Guangdong Lanwan Intelligence Technology.
The International Data Corporation expects global spending on 3D printers, materials, software and services to surge from the $13.2 billion it hit in 2016 to $28.9 billion in 2020.
