Solidscape®, Inc. has announced that it has signed a strategic agreement with the Kangshuo Group Co. Ltd for the creation of the largest 3D printing service bureau serving China’s domestic jewelry industry.
“This is an historic day for modern China. We are very excited about opening the largest 3D printing service bureau in China. We believe that we can now offer our customers the best possible products for the jewelry sector and help drive innovation in China,” stated Kangshuo President Bin Liu.
“For us, the clear choice was Solidscape. It is the beginning of a long and prosperous journey together.”
Solidscape® Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high precision 3D wax printers for the jewelry industry. The new centre will serve China’s domestic market with up to 1,000 high precision 3D printers from the company.
Kangshuo Group will construct four new 3D printing service bureau facilities; the first facility will open in Shenzhen in June, followed by Guangzhou in October, and Beijing and Shanghai in 2016. According to Kangshuo, the company decided to choose Solidscape 3D printers because of their ability to intricately fabricate detailed objects using materials such as wax, with high quality surface detail.
“We believe our collaboration is the driving force in creating a new 3D printing ecosystem in China,” said Fabio Esposito, President of Solidscape.
“With Stratasys‘ Solidscape 3D printers, Kangshuo is creating China’s largest Custom 3D Printing Manufacturing network, building an assembly factory for equipping China’s emerging 3D printing markets, opening Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centres across China and working with the government on educating a highly-skilled workforce. It is an amazing example of global cooperation. We are honoured to have such a strong ally as Kangshuo.”
