[China Packaging News] new things are sneaking into our lives faster and faster than the original cognition and expectation. 3D printing, an additive manufacturing technology that has been around for 30 years, has triggered a heated pursuit from listed companies to school teaching and even personal entrepreneurship under the guidance of industry 4.0 and the grand strategic background of intelligent manufacturing

however, 3D printing technology, which subverts the traditional manufacturing concept, is also a bit like a mirage in the face of the immeasurable market space in the future, visible but invisible. Behind the embarrassment, how to better integrate into the modern industrial production system is still a frustrating problem, and 3D printing technology itself also needs to be greatly improved in terms of equipment quality, material properties and service extension

old star enterprises are ready to be merged in the acquired industry.

as one of the natural person shareholders of Wuhan Binhu Electromechanical Technology Industry Co., Ltd. (Binhu electromechanical for short), he Cheng (a pseudonym) can hardly hide his worries about the future of the company

the acquisition stalemate has a great impact on the company. The company has begun to dismantle each other internally, and there is no way to focus on research and development. Moreover, the industry has made great progress, which is itself very dangerous. Completing the reshuffle is a matter of oneortwo years, and it will go on forever

according to the data, Binhu electromechanical was founded in 1996. It was born in the rapid manufacturing center of Huazhong University of science and technology, and its earliest history can be traced back to 1991. The company claims to be one of the earliest 3D printing enterprises in China, and has developed China's first 3D printer with independent intellectual property rights

according to He Cheng, Binhu electromechanical has relied on its own technology in recent years, focusing on the research and development of 3D printing industrial equipment, and the profit situation is fairly good. According to previous media reports, the company's revenue in 2013 was more than 50 million yuan, with a profit margin of about 10%, an increase of about 50% over 2012

however, since last year, Binhu electromechanical began to face the acquisition threat from Wuhan Huake 3D Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Huake 3D), a competitor with the same technical background. Huake 3D, established in early 2014, was led by Huazhong University of science and technology industry group and jointly established by Huazhong CNC and other five companies, aiming to implement the industrialization project of 3D printing technology of Huazhong University of science and technology. In other words, Huake 3D and Binhu electromechanical department are the same

since they are born from the same root, why are they in such a hurry? The underlying reason behind the acquisition is that after 3D printing has become hot in recent years, Huazhong University of science and technology wants to seize the opportunity to rapidly industrialize its industry-leading technology. As a school run enterprise, Binhu electromechanical had been restructured and transferred most of its shares that year. It is always difficult to cooperate between the multiple natural person shareholders introduced later and Huazhong University of science and technology. The company is loosely managed and lacks a market-oriented mechanism. Under the situation that it is difficult to solve the problems left over by history, the school decided to clean up the equity and restructure Binhu Electromechanical

in fact, as early as the beginning of 2013, with the popularity of 3D printing in China, according to media reports, pe/vc, the University of Exeter in the UK, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Wuhan Textile University, Foxconn and other institutions took the initiative to talk about investment and cooperation with Binhu Electromechanical. There are also a number of enterprises have expressed their intention to acquire Binhu Electromechanical, including military enterprises, Haier Group, etc

the whole industry has not yet matured, and star enterprises have been vied for like Tang Seng meat. At present, it is difficult to judge the future fate of Binhu Electromechanical, and it is even more worrying whether the 3D printing technology it has can be used due to the competition of all parties. A foreign case that can be compared is that the European Union will provide a total of 6million euros for an industrial intelligence project jointly implemented by industry companies, universities and scientific research institutes within three years

according to the information provided by BASF, an international chemical industry giant, to e-finance, BASF is leading and coordinating the implementation of an industrial manufacturing intelligent upgrading project called Recoba in conjunction with a number of cooperative members from six European Union countries. These members include industry giants such as ThyssenKrupp steel, as well as academic institutions such as Cambridge University and Aachen University of technology

the project aims to improve the efficiency and flexibility of various batch processes, thereby enhancing the overall competitiveness of the European batch production industry. The project focuses on three material systems to demonstrate the cross industry application of sensors and optimization and control methods; Its purpose is to improve product quality, reduce energy consumption, optimize the use of raw materials and reduce production costs

from another perspective, the experience of Binhu Electromechanical is also the epitome of the upcoming merger and integration in the 3D printing field. According to Luo Jun, executive director of China 3D printing technology industry alliance, although it is calm on the surface, the merger and integration of China's 3D printing industry has been ready to move since this year, with many signs. New forces have begun to lay out behind it, setting off a new round of movement

the government promotes the rise of 3D printing, and the capital market is booming.

the detection of cable faults has become a problem that must be solved. All this stems from the upsurge of 3D printing from abroad to China, from the private to the government level on industry 4.0, and on the strategic layout of intelligent manufacturing

industry 4.0 is a high-tech strategic plan proposed by the German government, which aims to improve the intelligent level of manufacturing industry and establish a smart factory with adaptability, resource efficiency and human factors engineering. For this purpose, the Chinese government has specially launched the "made in China 2025" plan and determined to take intelligent manufacturing as the main direction. In the connotation of industry 4.0 strategy, robots are included. This selection is to implement the spirit of the national intellectual property strategic program and the national patent development strategy (2011 (2) 020), 3D printing and logistics and other industries based on modern information technology and Internet technology

3d printing is a visual expression. The essence of technology is basically the same as the working principle of traditional ordinary printing. What the printer contains is not paper, but real printing materials such as liquid or powder. After connecting with the computer, it builds a model through computer control, and then outputs data to stack the printing materials layer by layer, and finally turns the blueprint on the computer into a physical object

3d printing technology can be divided into desktop level (Civil) and industrial level (industrial production) in terms of product applications. It has a wide range of applications, ranging from automobiles and aerospace to dentistry and education. At present, the shadow of 3D printing can be seen, and even human organs, food, clothes and houses can be printed, so that it gives people a feeling that it is almost impossible

in the 3D printing industry, Shi Yusheng, director of the rapid manufacturing center of Huazhong University of science and technology, who is still the chairman of Binhu Electromechanical, is also considered to be one of the five major factions of rapid prototyping systems in China, and must be launched after it is stopped. The other four teams are Yan Yongnian of Tsinghua University, Wang Huaming of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Lu Bingheng of Xi'an Jiaotong University and Huang Weidong of Northwestern Polytechnic University

3d printing technology first originated in the United States in the 1980s, and its real popularity began in the second half of 2012 when U.S. President Barack Obama announced the creation of the national network of American manufacturing innovation. Gartner, a global market research company, released a report saying that the global 3D printing market had reached US $3.8 billion in 2014, and the shipment volume this year could reach 217350 units, an increase of 100%. The agency predicts that by 2018, the shipment volume of this market will exceed 2.3 million units, and the scale is expected to reach US $12.5 billion

therefore, the Chinese government also focuses on these emerging areas. The Ministry of industry and information technology officially released the "national additive manufacturing industry development promotion plan (year)" in March. This document proposes that the sales revenue of additive manufacturing (i.e. 3D printing) industry should achieve an average annual growth rate of more than 30% and form a furniture enterprise with strong international competitiveness

at the local government level, the 3D printing industry has blossomed everywhere and become a hot spot pursued by local governments, including Nanjing, Wuhan, Zhuhai, Qingdao, Chengdu, Changsha and other places have prepared to build 3D printing industrial parks and provided support in terms of capital, land and supporting policies

when the company was first established, there were still problems with loans, but now there are tax incentives. In the past two years, the government and banks have given great support to 3D printing, said Jia Xin, sales director of Xi'an bolite Laser Forming Technology Co., Ltd. However, in the view of insiders, the support of local governments is obviously too hot. The chairman of a domestic 3D printing concept listed company said that the market problem should finally be solved by the market, and the government will play a role in promoting and guiding, but it still depends on the market to survive

in fact, the development of 3D printing market is not satisfactory. Luo Jun, executive director of China 3D printing technology industry alliance, told Yi Caijing that in the past, there were relatively more hype concepts in the field of 3D printing, just like many concept stocks of listed companies, because in recent years, we have not seen profits, and we are betting on the future. Now that there is a government plan, it also indicates the beginning of a new round of enclosure movement

there is already a 3D printing concept stock group in China's capital market. According to flush statistics, there are 37 listed companies involved in 3D printing concept. However, there is no listed company in Shanghai and Shenzhen stock markets that really focuses on 3D printing

take guangyunda, a 3D printing concept stock popular in the capital market, as an example. In fact, Shanghai guangyunda 3D Technology Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of the company that does 3D printing, lost 1.839 million yuan in net profit last year. Guangyunda's annual report said that 3D printing is an emerging technology, and the industry development has just started, and it will take a long time to accumulate its large-scale application and popularity. The company is optimistic about the development prospects of the project, but still predicts that it will not bring a significant increase in the company's profits in the short term

another concept stock, Jinyun laser, after launching the 3D printing strategy, its share price was as high as 46 yuan/share last year, up 8 times from the lowest point of 5.74 yuan/share in 2012. Although the business sector has not yet made a profit, Haitong Securities Research Report also pointed out that BMW, Mercedes Benz and other high-end automobile manufacturers have adopted aluminum alloy materials on a large scale. The 3D printing industry has a broad market space. At present, the valuation of 3D printing related companies is generally high. Considering that the company has invested a lot in building the whole industry chain of 3D printing services, its performance may be greatly affected, so a higher valuation can be given
