China’s largest Additive Manufacturing service bureau, Shenzhen Wenext Technology Co, Ltd (Wenext), headquartered in Shenzhen, China, has signed an agreement with Guangdong Hanbang 3D Tech Co, Ltd (HBD), Zhongshan, to deepen cooperation and establish a long-term, comprehensive strategic partnership. As part of the agreement, Wenext has ordered thirty new HBD-350T metal Additive Manufacturing machines from HBD.
Wenext was launched in 2015 and has grown into a multi-process service bureau with around a thousand polymer AM machines as well as CNC machining centres, sheet metal equipment, injection moulding systems, vacuum casting and inspection equipment. The company turned to HBD in order to meet customer demand for metal AM services.
In this strategic cooperation, both parties are committed to advancing the digitisation of manufacturing and the large-scale production of small batches. Both companies believe that the cooperation will expand opportunities and serve as a win-win for both parties and manufacturing as a whole.
Mao Yi, General Manager of HBD, said that HBD aims to help Wenext upgrade process technology and equipment. One such step already taken is that HBD has developed software for overseeing operation, data processing and intelligent management, which can connect with Wenext’s internal information software platform. This vertical integration is anticipated to improve manufacturing efficiency, further expanding Wenext’s product service capabilities.
