UnionTech and IdeaForm Showcase 3D Printing Solutions in Footwear Industry at Aysaf


UnionTech and IdeaForm made an impression at the recent Aysaf in Istanbul, Turkey. They presented a range of innovative 3D printing technologies that are revolutionizing the transitional way that shoe molds are manufactured. These groundbreaking machines have been specifically designed to cater to the needs of the footwear industry, offering a range of benefits that traditional manufacturing methods simply cannot match.


Resin 3D Printer - Lite Series

UnionTech's Lite Series is one of its flagship products, offering a generous build volume of 600 × 600 × 400 mm. One of its applications is production of 3D printed shoe molds in footwear industry, which can replace traditional wooden molds in the footwear manufacturing process. The Lite Series boasts high precision and is capable of producing intricate and complex textures. This makes it an excellent choice for shoe companies looking to engage in small-batch manufacturing and gain rapid market feedback.


AHEC 3D Printer - Martrix520

Another standout product is the Martrix520, that features AHEC surface exposure technology. This Martrix520 boasts a large build volume of 298 x 165 x 320 mm and high precision up to 0.02 mm, making it an ideal choice for creating shoe prototypes. Its user-friendly design makes it effortless to spot design changes and increase yield, ensuring scalability. The Martrix520 can significantly reduce risks associated with transitioning to high-volume production for prototyping and full-scale manufacturing.



Metal 3D Printer - FM420M

UnionTech has also developed a metal 3D printer, the FM420M, specifically for the footwear industry. This printer has a large build volume of 420 x 330 x 300 mm, double laser scanning, and a two-way variable speed powder spreading design, making it highly efficient. The FM420M has revolutionized the process of metal shoe molding by replacing traditional stages of wooden mold, casting, and texture. This has reduced environmental pollution and energy consumption, saved labor, enhanced design freedom, and stimulated innovation in the entire industry.



Overall, UnionTech and IdeaForm's 3D printers were a hit at the Aysaf. Their innovative machines provided shoe companies with highly adaptable and efficient manufacturing tools, enabling them to streamline their operations and promptly respond to market changes. The demonstration showcased the potential of 3D printing in transforming the footwear industry's manufacturing process, providing a glimpse into the future of the industry.
