Quickly turning ideas into award-winning designs

Driving the improvement of production capacity with 3D printers
UnionTech Education Case

Shanghai Design Biennial 2016 was held from Sept.1to 3 at the Shanghai Exhibition Center,located at 1000 Yan’an Middle Rd. Meanwhile, jointly partnering with the Shanghai Foreign Exchange Center of Science and Technology and another well-known multinational conglomerate corporation, UnionTech provided 3D printers in sponsorship for Shanghai Intelligent City Industrial Competition highlighted the SDB for College Students.

This competition focused on the intelligent street light industrial design based on the industrial Internet of Things. Student teams from 6 universities such as Fudan University, East China University of Science and Technology and Shanghai Second Polytechnic University, designed and produced their most creative works as required, including the street lights, and intelligent remote management panel visualized in consonance with the road condition, for the final awards. Before handing into the competition’s judging panel, the contest submissions will be 3D printed with UnionTech™ SL industrial 3D printers to deliver a better form, fit and function for their design concepts.

UnionTech ’s involvement aims to arouse university students’ passion and interest in current scientific innovation and help themdiscover their potential in industrial design. Also, UnionTech sees the competition as an activity that combines both 3D printing applications and design innovation, and also offered an excellent platform for the young and talented to visualize their work with 3D printers. In addition, UnionTech has put emphasis on the education and spread of 3D printing technology among students across various departments, from product design and engineering to architecture, medical and fine arts at all levels for a decade. As an industry pioneer, UnionTech is devoted to the cultivation and the development of innovative talents and will continue to cooperate with the government, educational institutions and other partners to explore more innovative cultivation mode, making 3D printers be applied in educational field as an useful technical tool to inspire students’ initiative in studies and foster their creativity.

Established in 2000, UnionTech owns nearly 20 years of proven leadership in globally-sourced 3D stereolithography printing systems and is now the market leader of SL equipment in China. We have broadened our market reach to support a quickly growing customer base in North America, Europe, Russia and Asia.

Our CE-certified SL technology is time-tested. With reliable technical supports and maintenance options, our industrial 3D printers are applied widely in mold making & tooling, automotive, footwear, arts, dental & medical, etc. We also strengthen our leadership as an Additive Manufacturing (AM) equipment and solutions supplier by actively focusing on the evolution of new photopolymer AM technologies. Nearly 50% of our growing professional team is dedicated to research and product development.


The versatility of 3D printing materials decides the versatility of products. With nearly 20-year practice and experience in the industry,UnionTech has developed stereo lithography apparatus (SLA) materials with industrial performance close to that of engineering plastics,high-transparency acrylic SLA materials,high-flexibility SLA materials and heat-resistant SLA materials that could replace molds.
