It proves that the era of 3D printing truly revolutionizing manufacturing has arrived, and manufacturing companies should act immediately to seize the opportunity in the future competition.

Bart Van de Schueren followed, Mr. Huang Xin, general manager of Materialise Greater China, gave a speech on the theme of “Additive Manufacturing in the Age of Industry 4.0”. He said that in the new industrial era, the natural digital properties of 3D printing determine the relationship between it and the industry. 4.0 has an inseparable companion relationship. In order to play a more important role in the future manufacturing industry, 3D printing needs to evolve from the current isolated prototype manufacturing to a fully interconnected hybrid manufacturing system. In his speech, Mr. Huang Xin introduced to the audience Materialise’s understanding of large-scale 3D printing in the Industry 4.0 era from four perspectives: end-to-end design and process, establishment of global production network, digital factory connection and control, and use of data to optimize production processes. And the solutions provided.

Another important point of the Huang Xin conference is the new research report of Materialise “3D Printing in the Eyes of Chinese Manufacturing Industry” (click to obtain) released by Ms. Kim Francois, General Manager of Global Business Development of Materialise. Materialise conducts in-depth research on practitioners of traditional manufacturing industry. Analyzed and summarized the understanding, acceptance and future expectations of 3D printing technology in traditional manufacturing.

The most attractive part of Kim Francois’ morning session was the final panel discussion session. The session was hosted by Wang Xiaoyan, founder of 3D Science Valley, with Mr. Xue Lei, general manager of Xi’an Bright, and Mr. Hu Jinhong, general manager of Heller China general industry sales. -Works editor-in-chief Mr. Huang Pei discussed “how to promote the application of 3D printing in China’s manufacturing industry”. Discussed the understanding of the industrialization of 3D printing, the advantages of 3D printing in the manufacturing field, the preparations made by companies for the industrialization of 3D printing, the opportunities and challenges of 3D printing in vertical industries, and how companies can improve simulation, process, digital capabilities, and technology.
