Date:2015-06-18   Reading:2068


(CHENGDU, China, June 5, 2015) - Today, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) issued the UL and cUL certifications at the Third World 3D Printing Technology Industry Conference & the Second World 3D Printing Expo in Chengdu China for Einstart-L 3D printer under Shining 3D. This certifies that the said product has successfully passed the relevant tests under UL 60950, and has become a safe product recognized by UL. UL enjoys a high degree of public confidence in the international market; with the UL certification obtained by Shining 3D, it not only shows an emphasis on the safety of innovative products by the business, it also helps to further develop the business overseas.

The 3D printing industry has been developing swiftly in recent years, and has increasingly expanded into lifestyle use from industrial use in the past. In 2015, with the rise of “personal manufacturing”, 3D printing is no longer something that can only be completed in a large scale laboratory; such technology is quickly entering into the homes of ordinary people, and home-use 3D printers have also become smaller and increasingly cheaper. People can also use such printers to produce their favorite jewelery, home appliances, toys, tools and products of various measurements, shapes or colors. Furthermore, people can also produce parts of home appliances at home using the 3D printer, thereby reducing the period of ordering and waiting for delivery. According to strategic analysis and predictions of research companies, the value of the global home 3D printing market will reach USD 70 billion in 2030.

Using the Einstart-L Desktop 3D Printer as an example, it belongs to the second generation of desktop printers developed by Shining 3D itself. It uses FFF technology, and has a uni-body appearance; its simple design, however, reveals a heightened sense of quality, and its largest printing dimensions can reach up to 310 x 220 x 200 mm. The Einstart-L Desktop 3D Printer primarily targets personal home use, and uses a simple operations design to meet a customer's needs in 3D printing.

“As the vice chairman enterprise of the World 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance, Shining 3D prioritizes product safety while propelling innovation and development in the industry. As such, we will bring the product to be inspected by a third party, and we have selected UL, which has more than a hundred years of experience; and with the support of UL's professional talents and international network, to more effectively enter the international market. Especially with the important certification of the US and European markets, we hope to push the products into the target markets in a timely fashion,” said Donglai Zhao, vice president of Shining 3D.

“As technology products change constantly, UL continually develops and improves on its standards, in order to gate-keep on the safety issues of new technology. While the new products are able to provide consumers with new surprises and lifestyle conveniences, we hope that they can also be assured in terms of being able to safely use them. Furthermore, UL certification can help Chinese brands build confidence in the international market, and be recognized by global consumers. On this occasion, as the leading manufacturer of 3D printing technology, Shining 3D has successfully obtained UL certification, and it is believed that this would have an effect of proactively guiding the entire industry in emphasizing technological advancement together with safety, and ensuring the healthy development of enterprises," said Simin Zhou, vice president of UL’s Digital Manufacturing Technologies Division.
