SLM Solutions (Shanghai) Co. LtdMr Jerry Ma, General Manager“We’ve been exhibiting at Formnext in Frankfurt for years and when we know that the fair is going to be held in China we decided to join as it is a trusted platform for the industry. Additive manufacturing is an emerging industry in China and has seen rapid growth over the past five years. The Chinese market has a lot of potential especially when the 14th Five-Year Plan calls for cultivating advanced manufacturing industry clusters, together with the government’s increased investment into aerospace technology, these will provide ample opportunities for the additive manufacturing industry. “
Shenzhen Bright Additive Manufacturing Co., Ltd.Mr Vincent Yang, Vice General Manager“We are an industry chain’s metal additive manufacturing solution provider with headquarter in Xian, as well as branches and subsidiaries in Shenzhen, Beijing, Chengdu, Weinan and Taixing. We are showcasing cultural and creative applications, shoe sole pattern molding, foaming molding, as well as medical and dental related latest applications. We have had a long-standing relationship with Formnext since its debut in Frankfurt in 2015, and we have started to exhibit at the fair from the next year, so that when Formnext + PM South China announced to hold in Shenzhen, we thought that it was undoubtedly an opportunity for our business development, and the fair will have positive effects towards Chinese industry and even in Asia through the Greater Bay Area.”

Shenzhen Pacific Union Precision Manufacturing Co LtdMr Hongbao Jiang, Engineer“I have great interest in metal 3D printing so when I know Formnext + PM China will debut in Shenzhen I have to come here. Many of the industry’s household names join the fair including Xi'an Bright Laser Technologies which I would visit their booth for sure. Besides sourcing for metal 3D printing products, I’ve learned about the latest technologies in additive manufacturing including ceramic printing and inkjet printing. I will definitely visit the fair next year!”
Guangdong Academy of SciencesMr Chang Cheng, Researcher, Institute of New Materials“I am engaged in scientific research for laser and my main focus is laser cladding. My purpose to join this fair is to communicate with different companies or parties, so as to have further corporations if their business is matched. I have discovered BLT’ strengths that they have two or four lasers for 3D laser printing, which enhance production efficacy. Besides, the China’s 14th Five-Year Plan can bring forth prosperous future for the industry as the policy is in flavor of promoting high-tech industry developments. Also, new materials will be benefited from the policy while additive manufacturing can further boost new materials’ developments and applications. All in all, as we are in the digitalized and informational era, digitalization, additive manufacturing and powder’s integration will facilitate manufacturing industry to a splendid future.”
