Guangdong Hanbang 3D Tech Co., Ltd. (HBD) has officially broken ground on its facility at Shanghai Lingang Industrial Park, China. The first phase of HBD’s 3D Printing Equipment Base Construction Project is expected to focus on the research & development of large, medium and small-scale Additive Manufacturing equipment in military aerospace, medical, green energy, and industrial precision mould fields, among others.

To start the ceremony, speeches were given by Liu Jianye, chairman of Hanbang Technology; Gao Qi, senior vice president of CITIC Securities; Wang Chengyon, vice president of Guangdong University of Technology-HBD Joint R&D Center for Metal Additive Manufacturing Technology; Wang Yingjun, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the chief consultant of HBD; and Xu Ningjun, secretary of the party committee of the town of Nantou.

“In the past three years of the epidemic, HBD has seized the opportunity and the momentum, and achieved excellent results in the field of metal 3D printing, with continuous product upgrades, continuous expansion of scale, and continuous enhancement of comprehensive competitiveness,” Gao Qi stated in his speech. “I hope HBD will take this opportunity to continue to become stronger and bigger, actively promote the high-quality development of the metal Additive Manufacturing industry, and contribute to the localisation process of high-end manufacturing.”

Wang Yingjun added, “The foundation of the metal 3D printing equipment industrialisation base project marks that HBD has entered a new historical stage, and it is hoped that HBD will take this as an opportunity to vigorously promote the application of Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) technology in many fields, realise precision digital medicine, help the innovation of active and passive high-end medical device products, make positive contributions to the national health, actively promote the upgrading of China’s traditional industrial system, and play an important role in the scientific development of China’s manufacturing industry.”

Following the speeches, the groundbreaking moment itself took place, with leaders and guests holding golden shovels to represent hope.
