Shining 3D Technology GmbH was founded in 2017, and significantly expands the range of services at the new location in the industrial region of southern Germany. On more than one thousand square meters there are two showrooms, a reference production, spare parts supply, modern training rooms and various business departments such as sales, finance and marketing. The extensive show area houses numerous 3D-printed reference parts and products made of plastic and metal, from designer jewelry to fuel nozzles for aircraft turbines, and shows the various fields of application of Shining 3D’s additive technologies. Additionally, a Porsche 911 body serves as a demonstrator for the capacities of the Shining 3D scanning technology.

The German subsidiary employs a total of twenty people in Stuttgart and a branch in Italy and supports the entire Europe, Middle East, and Africa region with a very dynamic international team.

“Display the AM process chain close to the industry“

“In addition to the scanning products, the new location enables us to present the entire process chain of additive manufacturing in an industry-oriented manner and to develop suitable solutions for our customers and partners promptly and competently,“ said Xiaoping Huang, general manager of Shining 3D Technology GmbH. “In addition, due to the central location in the heart of southern Germany with numerous important companies and industries as well as the proximity to the airport and important motorways, we are close to our customers and partners.“

Shining 3D offers the latest additive manufacturing solutions both in the metal sector with its powder bed fusion technology (PBF) and in the plastics sector with stereolithography (SLA), direct light processing (DLP) and selective laser sintering (SLS). “This enables us to provide technology-independent advice and, depending on the application and production environment, develop the solution that ultimately achieves the greatest customer benefit,“ says Enis Jost, application engineer industrial AM. In addition, customers also profit from the combination of offers from 3D digitization and additive manufacturing, achieving significant added value in orthopedics, dental technology, tool making and many other areas. Moreover, Shining 3D also offers certified materials, but at the same time pursues an ‘open power policy’ enabling the use of customer-specific powders.

Spare parts and extensive services

At the new location in Stuttgart, Shining 3D stores an extensive amount of spare parts and consumables, guaranteeing availability on site and within a short time for customers all over Europe.  The free consultation service and in-house production of reference parts paves the way for successful additive manufacturing. The training of employees on new additive machines at the customer’s site is also coordinated from here.

Since its foundation in 2004, Shining 3D has been pioneering in independent research and development of technologies for 3D digitization and additive manufacturing; it holds over 300 patents and more than 100 copyrights in these areas. (Source: Shining 3D)
