Shanghai Union Technology Corp. (UnionTech) has completed an agreement with DSM Additive Manufacturing for a new agreement relative to the promotion of Somos stereolithography (SL) material product line to accompany UnionTech’s expansion of SL equipment sales in the American market.
UnionTech has been an active distributor of Somos® SL materials in China since 2003. The combination of Somos® stereolithography (SL) materials and UnionTech SL equipment is a well-established 3D printing solution with over 600 UnionTech SL installations globally.
Building on the successful 2016 expansion of UnionTech into the Americas marketplace, an agreement has been made to facilitate distributors of UnionTech SL equipment to better provide a one stop solution 3D printing solution. The agreement will be non-exclusive and covers all Somos® SL materials available for both UnionTech’s PILOT commercial series and RSPro production product lines.
“We are proud to work very closely with the DSM Additive Manufacturing, combining our fully open hardware platform technology with DSM’s continuous innovation in Somos® resin technology,” states Barry Tsou, UnionTech’s President. “Working together on open platforms brings huge benefits in developing materials that meet the criteria of our customers needs directly.”
