Partnering opportunity

A Chinese company is looking for cemented carbide 3D printing forming technology


A Chinese cemented carbide company is looking for cemented carbide 3D printing forming technology。 They want to cooperate with partners through research cooperation agreement and technical cooperation agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

The company plans to carry out research on the cemented carbide 3D printing technology of selective laser deposition and spraying binder with relevant universities and research institutes. The company will be responsible for the research on the preparation technology of cemented carbide 3D printing powder, optimize the process according to the technical requirements of 3D printing powder from the cooperation partner, and prepare the raw material of cemented carbide powder. The partner will carry out research on the 3D printing technology of cemented carbides, select appropriate process routes and process parameters, and produce cemented carbides with similar theoretical density and no defects inside. The company will evaluate the comprehensive performance of the sample prepared by the partner, and make application and promotion.

Partner sought

The company is looking for R&D institution or company involved in cemented carbide 3D printing forming technology. The company is interested in research cooperation and technical cooperation.They can cooperate through joint development. The partner can help the company to develop the request tecnology or directly provide it.


The company which established in 1980, is located in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province. It mainly produces metal cutting tools, mining and oil field drilling tools, hard materials, tungsten-molybdenum products, tantalum-niobium products, rare metal powder products. They are looking for cemented carbide 3D printing forming technology. Cemented carbides are widely used in metallurgy, machinery, geology, coal, petroleum, chemical industry, electronics, textile and military industries. They want to cooperate with partners through research cooperation agreement and technical cooperation agreement. Rapid prototyping of cemented carbide tools with complex geometry can be achieved by using resource-saving and mould-free 3D printing. Cemented carbide 3D printing can be achieved by selective laser deposition and spray binder. There are some problems such as low density and crack in cemented carbide products prepared by selective laser deposition. Spraying binder is a new technology in recent years, and it has made some breakthroughs in the preparation of cemented carbides. Powder is the foundation of cemented carbide 3D printing. The company adopts WC powder and Co powder as raw materials to prepare wc-co spherical powder with particle size less than 60μm and liquidity less than 30 seconds, which is adapted to the requirements of 3D printing technology. It continues to seek cooperation with relevant universities and research institutes to carry out research on cemented carbide 3D printing technology.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
