UnionTech (St. Charles, IL), a division of Shanghai Union Technology Corp., announced it has completed an agreement in principle for a new partnership involving promotion of Somos stereolithography (SL) materials to accompany Union Tech’s expansion of SL equipment sales in the American and European markets.
UnionTech has been an active distributor for DSM’s (Heerlen, Netherlands) Somos SL materials, and its SL equipment is a well-established 3D printing solution with more than 600 installations globally. The partnership will be non-exclusive and covers all Somos materials available for both UnionTech’s Pilot commercial series and RSPro product lines.
“We are proud to work very closely with the Somos group, combining our fully open hardware platform technology with their constant innovation in resin development,” stated 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.”
