Technology Upgraded

The Martrix series is committed to providing professional users with the highest quality professional-grade desktop 3D printing solutions, standing out among many similar products with exceptional printing precision, quality, material compatibility, and streamlined workflows. The proprietary Adjustable High-Energy Control (AHEC) technology can adaptively adjust the printing process based on high energy density. Supported by this technology, Martrix printers utilize high-power LED chips, high-transparency exposure screen, and quality cooling systems to achieve outstanding energy density of the light source.

Building upon the Martrix 190, the newly upgraded Martrix 520 incorporates quasi-industrial components to further enhance printing precision, almost reaching industrial-level standards. Additionally, a 13.6-inch 7K high-precision LCD screen and a 16L large build volume significantly boost Martrix 520’s multitasking capabilities, greatly increasing production efficiency. Moreover, with the help of a low-peel release film and high-precision linear guide, the Martrix 520 achieves a good printing speed, offering users higher precision without the hassle of jagged edges or sample deformation.

Material Exploration for the Martrix520 resin 3D-printer

As a printing material co-developed with photopolymerization printers, the physical properties of resins allow for a leap in the quality of printed items with high precision, ushering in a new stage of focus on quality and precision in 3D printing, with industrial applications becoming increasingly feasible. As a “platform,” resin inherently implies compatibility: from the selection of various monomers to the use of additives and modifiers, this combination of elements creates a range of possibilities for resin, providing industry-specific materials for various sectors and truly applying photopolymerization technology in the industry, bridging the gap from theory to practice.

Thanks to the diversity of material choices, Liqcreate has developed a range of high-performance 3D printing resin materials. From general-purpose resins to those specialized for engineering, dental, and other applications, photopolymerization printers continue to expand their footprint in industrial production. Liqcreate’s resins, compatible with various photopolymerization technologies, are widely used in prototype validation, industrial production, cultural and entertainment products, consumer goods, automotive, and other fields, enabling every industry to find its application in 3D printing.


Future Momentum

As 3D printer technology advances and material science progresses, 3D printers themselves will further develop in terms of precision, quality, and efficiency. Given their customizable nature, mass production on a large scale will represent a new direction for 3D printing. Precision upgrades, quality optimization, and efficiency improvements are the breakthrough directions for 3D printing technology. In the industrial sector, companies that first adopt 3D printing technology for mass production will gain significant advantages in cost and efficiency, greatly enhancing their market competitiveness.

In parallel, resin materials will also advance in terms of enhancing material properties, thereby further expanding the scale of functional resin materials and broadening the range of 3D printing applications. Moreover, high-precision, distinctively featured resin materials will be applied in scale production across different industries. With advancements in their curing speed, the use of new resin materials will significantly boost industrial production efficiency.

As the 3D printing industry shifts from product development to production-oriented approaches, everything will begin to serve production purposes. From developing products to developing application scenarios, improving the precision, quality, and efficiency of 3D printing remains a challenging quest throughout the entire 3D printing supply chain. UnionTech will continue its strong collaboration with Liqcreate, consistently offering innovative solutions for 3D printing in industrial production.



Liqcreate Flame Retardant HDT

Liqcreate Flame Retardant HDT is a rigid off-white photopolymer resin and can be processed on most open resin based 3D-printers. 3D-printed parts from this material can withstand high temperatures without posing a fire hazard due to its self-extinguishing capabilities. This material is perfect for creating parts that need to comply with UL94-V0 test standards. Such as interior parts in cars, airplanes, trains and electronic devices. In addition, it can be excellent for tooling manufacturing aids, connector housings and covers.
