Huawei Technologies Co LtdMr Wang Kui, Process & Engineering Department, Senior Engineer“Not long ago, Huawei has launched the intelligent vehicle business unit. As the key technology of automotive industry continues to evolve towards information and communication technology, intelligent vehicles industry sector is also another key business for our firm, apart from manufacturing cellphones and other connectivity devices. With that said, I came to learn about the latest AM and PM manufacturing technologies on offer to-date. One of the presentations I find interesting was by Siemens on implementing on automobile additive manufacturing processes with state of the art manufacturing technologies and solutions. I really like the idea of merging manufacturing processes like 3D printing via the cloud and digitisation. AM and PM manufacturing processes will be considered in our production line in the future. With that said, I very much look forward to what formnext+PM South China has to offer.”
Guaung Qi HondaMr Lin Jiawei, Company Representative“Guang Qi Honda is a car manufacturer, I came to the summit to learn about the latest technologies from renowned solutions provider, hoping to get different insights on upgrading our existing manufacturing processes which can reduce manufacturing time as well as improving precision. Our firm relies very heavily on 3D printing technology to R&D parts for our vehicles to improve reliability, efficiency and performance. Being here at the summit provided me an opportunity to see and understand the different innovative manufacturing solutions that can potentially help us increase manufacturing precision while at the same time reduce production time. The summit was without a doubt very helpful for my line of work, and I really look forward to the exhibition that will take place next year here in Shenzhen. Being able to see the solutions and understand their respective performances in person will help with our sourcing needs.”
Evergrande National New Energy Vehicle GroupMr Huang Nankun, Company Representative“We are a new car manufacturing company and I really appreciate the opportunity to be here at the summit to learn about the ground-breaking manufacturing technologies.
