36 氪 was exclusively informed that Hengpu (Ningbo) Laser Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Hengpu Laser”) has completed tens of millions of yuan in Series A financing. This round of financing was led by Shenzhen Tongchuang Weiye and Ningbo Angel Fund. This round of financing funds will be used for team building, new product research and development, and market expansion.
“Hengpu Laser” is mainly engaged in the production and sales of 3D printing products for consumer projects. Its innovative application of laser 3D printing technology is used in the production process of engineering tools, and the structural function of the product is integrated. By laser implanted ceramic -based composite materials in low -cost steel substrates, this scheme realizes the macro melting and micro -bonding of metal and ceramics, taking into account customers’ needs for toughness and abrasion resistance. More than times.

The 3D printing technology of metal ceramic composite materials has always been a problem in the industrial field.
An expert in the 3D printing industry told 36KR that “the printing of metal ceramic composite materials is very difficult because ceramic itself is not suitable for printing. At present, the ceramic content that the industry can print is usually less than 10%, and it will be very difficult to go up. It is a world -class technical problem. “The technical breakthrough of” Hengpu Laser “is here. At present, its successful mass -produced products, the ceramic content of the 3D printing part is far beyond the industry level.
“Hengpu Laser” founder Liu Dejian explained to 36 氪 that traditional tools directly welded the wear -resistant layer (mainly ceramic materials) and anti -impact layer (mainly metal materials). The ceramic is implanted directly into the metal, and the gradient material of the gradient is printed. The combination of metal and ceramics does not have a clear interface. “The previous pile welding technology is like wearing a wig. The intensity is relatively low. Laser implantation technology is like hair transplantation. It can be implanted in metal. One important reason to perform well in the market. “

“Wear -resistant” is the first pursuit of products in the engineering scene.
Taking the most important consumables in industries such as subway tunnel mining, infrastructure construction, coal mining and other industries -engineering knives (also known as “engineering teeth”) as an example, my country consumes tens of billions of yuan each year. The high -end market of this consumables has always been firmly controlled by European and American giants such as Yamama Telvik and Kenner Metals, because these scenes have strong requirements for the performance of consumables. Construction efficiency, so the low -cost strategy is not bought by the market. In addition, the frequent replacement of tools will also increase the comprehensive cost of customers. This product characteristic increases the difficulty of domestic tools for domestic replacement.
In the early years, 3D printing was mainly used for special scenarios such as military and aerospace due to high technical difficulty and expensive price. Hengpu’s initial business also started from here. Although the gross profit of special scenes is high, the market space is small.
At present, after several years of exploration,
The productization of Hengpu laser core technology is rooted in the engineering scenario, which means that the dimension of high -precision technology has also been recognized by the market.
The tools of metal ceramic group 3D printed are more abrasion, which also solves the problem of large wear of engineering tools. At the same time, it has the characteristics of resistance, impact resistance, and low cost. It is the iteration direction of engineering knife products.
In addition, the “Hengpu Laser” product is relatively controllable than traditional tools. The improvement performance of traditional tools is mainly through the use of more expensive raw materials, so it is often impossible to balance costs and performance. Although the “Hengpu Laser” products, although the cost of 3D printing has increased part of the cost, it only requires ordinary steel. The production of high -performance products, by reducing the dependence of the raw material performance itself, has balanced the cost of 3D printing, so that the product has the advantages of high performance, high efficiency, and low cost.

Since 2019, the sales of the “Hengpu Laser” series of tool products have doubled their growth each year, and have formed strategic cooperation with well -known central enterprises such as Guo Neng, CCCC, China Railway, etc., and many times as the sole domestic brand. my country’s focus on China under construction is under construction. The project has broken the monopoly of traditional knife giants such as the United States and Germany in some provinces and cities. It can be said that it has completed the journey of peer for more than ten years in just a few years.
In terms of teams, the R & D team of “Hengpu Laser” consists of a doctoral team represented by Dr. Liu Dejian, with both scientific research and industrialization experience. Martin and other well -known universities and institutions at home and abroad.
The founder Liu Dejian has been engaged in the laser 3D printing industry for more than 20 years. He has hosted a number of major national defense projects, which is in the international leading level in the field of large parts of 3D printed and special ceramic 3D printing. As early as 2005, the research work of Laser Melt Injection was carried out, which solved the industry’s controversy on metal-ceramic interface control theory for many years. The fusion problem at the macro level, and for the first time internationally, successfully industrialized the technology.

Investor’s point of view:
“Tongchuang tracking 3D printing related targets for many years, the tracking of the target coverage 3D printing materials, equipment, services, and even platforms has also witnessed the process of 3D printing from concept to industrialization. In recent years The valuation bubbles of some standards, intensified competition in the industry, and decline in gross profit levels. “Wang Jing, who is the leader of this round, said,” I think 3D printing will eventually return to the essence of material molding, especially in industrial scenarios. As a part of many crafts, it will eventually land to specific products. Only by producing products that truly solve the pain points and competitiveness of customers, the craft itself will have vitality. The Hengpu laser is an enterprise that practice this concept. “,”
Tongchuang Weiye partner Duan Yao said: “In the previous” domestic alternative “investment logic, most domestic manufacturers used the advantages of services and prices to obtain the market, and they often followed the product innovation itself. In recent years, we have been in recent years. More and more see that a group of domestic manufacturers who have achieved product innovation based on new technologies have their technical capabilities and product power in their competitive positions. We also believe that a group of domestic enterprises represented by Hengpu laser, Can truly promote my country’s laser technology application industry to high -end and internationalization. “
