Operated by Guangdong Lanwan Intelligence Technology, the new mass manufacturing centre is located in Dali, Foshan, a major manufacturing hub in Guangdong Province.

The centre will exclusively use HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing systems, which deliver the speed, quality and economics required for production-grade 3D printing. The new centre will provide production-grade applications at scale for major automotive, consumer goods and motorcycle customers in Foshan as well as for other industries in the Greater Bay Area of Southern China. 

Senior representatives from the national and local governments, businesses and academia attended the centre’s opening ceremony in Foshan.
