Chinese mechanical engineering giant Haitian enters 3D printing

At the TCT Asia trade fair in Shanghai, Chinese machine manufacturer Haitian presented 3D printers for the first time. The company is one of the largest injection molding machine manufacturers in the world, but has not been active in 3D printing until now.

Haitian now underscored its additive manufacturing ambitions with four powder-based metal 3D printers. The systems were presented under the subsidiary Haitian Laser Machinery. According to the company, it has extensive experience in optics technology.

Haitian sees itself as a provider of complete production technology around 3D printing. In addition to the printers, it also showed powder handling and other peripherals. In a growing 3D printing market, the group wants to leverage its strong position in traditional manufacturing.

According to observers, Haitian is one of the most important Asian machine builders to have penetrated the Western market. By entering additive manufacturing, the company is following other manufacturers that have already taken this step, they said. For 3D printing, the market entry of such a major industry player is an important validation of the technology, they say.
