During November 7-8th, Xi’an witnessed the 2017 Global Hard & Core Technology Conference with eight Hard & Core technology industries as the core and “Hard & Core Technology Changes the World, Leads the Future and Promotes Xi’an” as the theme. The conference aims to explore rare opportunities and share development dividends with all sectors of society focusing on the driving forces and sources that promote eco-social progress rooted in Xi’an abundant technology resources, rich industrial development base and prominent state-level strategic position.
Hard & Core Technology is a highly sophisticated original technology requires independent development in many cases, long-term research input, continuous accumulation. Its high technical thresholds and technical barriers make copy and imitation difficult. With clear application products and industrial foundation, Hard & Core technology exerts a strong guiding and supporting role in industrial development as a driving force and source for the world’s progress.
Eight Hard & Core technologies show a sound momentum of growth in Xi’an, the conceptual birthplace of Hard & Core technology. They are artificial intelligence, aerospace, photonic chips, new materials, new energy, intelligent manufacturing, information technology and bio-technology.
With veritable Hard & Core technologies, BLT gets ahead in aerospace applications, new materials development, smart manufacturing, etc.
▼ 2017 intelligent manufacturing pilot project undertaker
On September 14th, 2017, the 2017 intelligent manufacturing pilot projects were released according to the Circular of the General Office of the Ministry of Industry and Informatization on the Recommended 2017 Intelligent Manufacturing Pilot Projects (Gong Xin Ting Zhuang Han  No. 215). BLT’s pilot intelligent plant for metal additive manufacturing pilot intelligent plant is the only 3D printing project out of 98.
▼ First-batch member of Sino-German Intelligent Manufacturing Alliance
The Sino-German Intelligent Manufacturing Alliance was founded in Shenzhen on April 9th, 2016. It aims to work to boost the alignment between Made in China 2025 and Industrial 4.0 for substantial steps in bilateral intelligent manufacturing cooperation. The first-batch members of this Appliance co-initiated by CCID and CIE include 60+ well-known companies such as BLT, Haier, Huawei, SAP, SMTCL, BOSCH, SANY, Phoenix, NXP, OneNET and XCMG Information, and scientific research institutions, universities and industry organizations like CAICT, ESI, BUAA, CAM and CIDA.
BLT currently serves more than 100 aerospace customers such as AVIC, AECC, CASIC, CASC, COMAC, AECC CAE, Airbus, Safran and GE. In 2011, BLT and COMAC cooperatively trialed 3D printing technology to titanium alloy printing flange installed on C919.
This part is the first super-sized metal 3D printing part on civil plane in China. This 3070mm-tall flange uses LSF forming technology and has proved to satisfy the design requirements for C919 after passing COMAC’s five performance tests. With comprehensive performance (even including fatigue performance) better than that of forgings, this part boasts strength consistency (2%) better than COMAC’s standard 5%, embody that BLT’s printing level can represent the upper metal 3D printing limit of aircraft parts in China.
▼ World’s longest central flange for C919
On September 21st, 2017, BLT presented the Airbus Global Supplier Conference as the only 3D printing technology provider and then was invited to the Summit Form themed “Doing Business in China” to discuss about “Business Strategies and Win-win Cooperation in Chinese Market” with AVIC, Aleris and Airbus.
BLT has been focusing on metal additive manufacturing for years as the largest and most technically powerful metal 3D printing integrated solution provider in China. “Freer design and simpler manufacturing” has always been the vision of BLT. BLT will stay true to its original intention and missions and grow into China’s top one Hard & Core technology vanguard that leads the world.
