In March this year, the Nexperia Asia Pacific Additive Technology Headquarters project officially settled in Xianghu, Hangzhou.
In the 1990s, the cross-sea industrial simulation software ANSYS entered China and set up an office in Beijing, which became the predecessor of Anshi Asia-Pacific.
What is industrial simulation? “You can understand it as replacing physical entities with computer computing power.” Fu Liqun, assistant to general manager of Anshi Asia Pacific Additive Manufacturing Co., Ltd., introduced that industrial simulation uses power algorithms instead of physical experiments, which can greatly reduce industrial R&D costs, which is a manufacturing industry. A big change in the country.
In 2004, Anshi Asia Pacific ushered in its first transformation.
At that time, in order to quickly adapt to the rapidly growing domestic simulation analysis market and develop software products that meet the needs of Chinese users, Anshi Asia Pacific expanded from a large-scale simulation analysis software seller to a supplier of simulation technology development, innovation and consulting services. In the following ten years, Anshi Asia Pacific established 5 R&D centers across the country and accumulated more than 4,000 industrial manufacturing customers, covering major domestic industrial cities.
In 2015, Nexperia Asia-Pacific transformed for the second time and officially entered the field of additive manufacturing.
“Additive manufacturing is a historical opportunity for Chinese manufacturing to change lanes and overtake. Traditional manufacturing often faces problems such as lack of system, mismatch between technology and design, and weak independent innovation capabilities. With the continuous advancement of Industry 4.0, additive manufacturing has gradually Rising, and ushered in a new development opportunity for the manufacturing industry.” Fu Liqun said. In 2018, Anshi Asia Pacific acquired Dedi Intelligent in Hangzhou. As a result, Anshi Asia Pacific has a complete industrial chain from design to manufacturing to service, and can produce products that cannot be manufactured by traditional techniques, such as complex lightweight structures, lattice structure design, and multi-part integrated manufacturing. “Additive manufacturing is a revolution in technology. At the same time, it also opens the shackles of design and breaks the disconnect between design and manufacturing, resulting in disruptive product design and production models.” Fu Liqun said.
Layout 3D Printing ecosystem from 0 to 1 to NIf it is said that Anshi Asia Pacific acquired Hangzhou Dedi Intelligence, it has a complete industrial chain from design to manufacturing to service, and has completed the transformation from 0 to 1. So, at the beginning of this year, Anshi Asia Pacific Additive Manufacturing Headquarters officially settled in Xianghu, it is the beginning of the transition from 1 to N, to accelerate the layout of the 3D printing ecosystem. Why settle down in Xianghu? Zhang Guoming, chairman of Nexperia Asia Pacific, said that Xianghu Lake in Xiaoshan has a beautiful natural environment and a superior business environment. More importantly, with a profound industrial ecology, Nexperia Asia Pacific should use additive thinking to drive advanced design and intelligent manufacturing industries. Reform and join hands with Xiaoshan to help the intelligent transformation of China’s manufacturing industry. The planned land area for the first phase of Anshi Asia-Pacific Additive Technology Headquarters and Production Base is about 80 acres. It will build an additive manufacturing headquarters, industrial simulation software development, additive manufacturing research and development, and additive manufacturing production base, focusing on gathering upstream and downstream enterprises to shorten supply Chain, for manufacturing enterprises to reduce corporate costs, improve efficiency, and enhance the overall competitiveness of the market. Fu Liqun introduced a micro turbojet engine to reporters in the transitional office of Anshi Asia Pacific Additive Manufacturing.
This product is suitable for the aerospace field. After being manufactured by 3D printing, the number of parts has been reduced from 93 to 13, and the weight has been greatly reduced. “In the aviation field, there is a saying called’Don’t let go of 1 gram’, because even if the weight is reduced by 1 gram, the flight cost will be reduced a lot.” At present, Anshi Asia Pacific has successfully developed in Jiaxing in conjunction with Yidong Aviation Technology. Two fully 3D printed miniature turbojet engines, the NK-10 with a thrust of 10 kg and the NK-50 with a thrust of 50 kg, have completed the over-temperature test above 1200℃. In addition to reducing costs and increasing efficiency for eco-partners such as Fangtai Electric and Informatics, Nexperia Asia-Pacific Additive Manufacturing is also incubating its own ecosystem and setting up new projects and new companies with partners in subdivisions. “In the field of dentistry, a top 3D printing company can achieve a product scale of 2 billion US dollars. Our goal is to continuously incubate invisible champions in the industry and build a 3D printing ecosystem.” Fu Liqun said, currently , Anshi Asia-Pacific has incubated the 3D printing dental project Ruijianbang, and more incubation projects will be launched in Hangzhou.
