UnionTech, which last year secured a reseller partnership with Europac 3D UK, specialises in Stereolithography 3D print technology and the sale of this kit to Fohen in the Guangdong province smashed the previous record.

The existing record was set in 2017 when more than 100 of its machines were installed, but the Fohen order pushes its order book to around 730 devices so far this year.

Machines sold include the RSPro600, RSPro800 and the RSPro1400, while parts produced are being used in industries including automotive, medical, aerospace, motorsport, consumer goods and defence.

Jeffrey Ma, Global Sales Director for UnionTech, comments: “These are significant sales and illustrate the strength of the market for 3D Printers as well as an endorsement of the quality and affordability of UnionTech printers.

“The open source platform and affordability of machines means that rapid prototyping and accurate part printing are now a reality for a range of innovative, competitive and forward looking sectors.”
