Shortly after news about the Materialise 3D Printing Center in Pekings’ Huwei Hospital had been released, the Belgium-based company announced another collaboration to expand its presence in China.
Materialise has signed a collaboration agreement with Golden Laser, a global manufacturer of laser cutting, engraving and marking systems who’s upcoming 3D printing service “3DEazer” will power the i.materialise platform.
“This collaboration will make sure that even more people will have access to easy 3D printing solutions and will help in expanding the reach of this amazing technology into traditional manufacturing markets,” wrote i.materialise in their blog. The production will take place at Golden Lasers’s Additive Manufacturing Center Service Bureau in Wuhan.
The agreement was signed in the presence of a delegation of Belgian government officials.
Peter Leys, Executive Chairman of Materialise noted: “Helping people incorporate the additional functionality and complexity offered by Additive Manufacturing into their products is what i.materialise is all about, and this collaboration agreement with Golden Laser will create the opportunity to help even more people and businesses materialize their great ideas.”
Liang Wei, Chairman of Golden Laser, commented: “Through this collaboration with the i.materialise 3D printing platform, we aim to offer our customers options for product manufacturing that were previously unavailable to them.”
