November 6, 2018-BASF venture Capital announced that it will invest in China's leading 3D printing process and 3D printer manufacturer Shanghai Plison Electromechanical Technology Co., Ltd. (PLISON) to jointly promote the development of the 3D printing industry. Plison R & amp; d patented technology sets high-speed batch printing, high accuracy and low cost characteristics.
BASF's investments can support Plison accelerate product development and related R & amp; d to expand market impact and gain access to global markets. Markus Solibieda, managing director of BASF Venture Capital, said: ' This is our first investment project for Chinese companies. Plison's pioneering technology improves the stability of large components so that, for the first time, such as medical braces and anatomical models can be produced through 3D printing. This investment project is also in line with BASF's strategy to increase investment in new technologies and expand product range in 3D printing.
' Dr Cheng Daqing, senior vice president of BASF Global, who is responsible for business and market development in Greater China, said: ' The Chinese market is undergoing a transition from ' manufacturing ' to ' intellectual '. The investment in Plison reflects our commitment to continue to expand our investment in innovation in the Chinese market. BASF venture Capital will play a very important role in helping us find the right partner and succeed.
' Plison, founder and chairman of Hou, said: ' 3D printing technology will one day change the world, but first of all, it must constantly change itself. Plison is committed to being a leader in change, driving technological development through solutions and professional and technical adjustments. BASF's investment allows us to focus more on improving our R & amp; d capabilities, which is one of the fundamental elements of our company's goals.
' Plison has developed its unique SMS light curing 3D printing technology based on traditional light curing molding technology (SLAs). Light curing molding technology produces larger components through photocurable resins. Plison adds printing accuracy on this basis without extending the print time. To improve the energy input for printing a single pixel point, SMS light curing technology divides each pixel in the resin into parts and solidifies it separately by exposing it to the LCD light. This is significantly higher than the energy input of a single pixel that is illuminated only once. This technique makes it possible to print large quantities of components in a stable print of large-size components or a single process. The use of LCD light, more can reduce production costs.
This advantage presents opportunities for the shoe-making and furniture industries.
Through this patented printing process technology, Pulitzer can provide customers with a variety of applications such as stealth braces, medical anatomy models and so on. SLAs are layers of curing of optical polymer solutions by laser to shape the required components.
