Founded in 2000, UnionTech is one of the pioneers in 3D printing. It has developed several resin-based additive manufacturing solutions based on different processes: SLA, DLP and LCD. The Chinese manufacturer is active in various sectors, such as medical and consumer goods. In fact, some of its machines have been designed for the footwear industry, such as the FM300 and FM450.

Features of the FM450

The FM450 3D printer is a resin machine that uses the stereolithography process, that is, it uses a laser that hardens successive layers of material. It has a print volume of 450 x 450 x 350 mm, which is quite generous for an SLA 3D printer. In addition, the possible layer thickness ranges from 0.05 to 0.25 mm, while the laser has a wavelength of 355 nm. The FM450 is compatible with a wide variety of resins, enabling the design of molds, tooling and finished shoes.

This SLA solution incorporates automatic tray calibration, remote control and real-time monitoring of the printing process, allowing users to produce parts with complete peace of mind.
