Brazilian Shoemaking Enterprise Dakota's Production Problem Solved with UnionTech's 3D Printing Solution for Footwear Industry

Brazilian Shoemaking Enterprise Dakota's Production Problem Solved with UnionTech's 3D Printing Solution for Footwear Industry

SHANGHAI, Feb. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently, UnionTech signed a cooperation agreement with the Brazilian shoemaking brand Dakota, to help it achieve high-precision, high-efficiency and high-level production with its 3D printing solution for footwear.


"Before cooperating with UnionTech, the conventional material epoxy resin was used in the production and processing of shoe molds. The production of one shoe mold requires a series of processes including pattern (master pattern) preparation, mold frame construction, parting surface selection, release agent application, mixing & pouring, resin curing & mold splitting, epoxy resin mold aftertreatment, mold assembling, and mold testing. This consumes a great amount of labor and time, and there are also worries about whether the mold quality is up to standard, whether the shoe pattern is exquisite enough, etc."

—Fernando, relevant responsible person of Dakota

Dakota is a renowned Brazilian shoemaking enterprise with products sold worldwide. Obviously, the traditional production method can no longer meet the development needs of an enterprise with such large-scale demand. It is learned that, after introducing the 3D printing shoemaking solution of UnionTech, Dakota has acquired effective results in improving efficiency with the highly efficient and intelligent 3D printing device FL660. In the past, it took nearly 10 hours to produce a shoe mold; now, the device can operate 24 hours a day without being watched, thus improving the overall efficiency by almost 60%. In Fernando's opinion, it's a miracle of production created by technology.

"UnionTech's 3D printing technology has helped us to present delicate patterns on shoe modes. In the old days, we had to rely on extra modification by hand to render shoes more gorgeous. However, today, we can directly print beautifully patterned shoe models to make more exquisite shoes, so as to satisfy our customers even better." 

—Fernando, relevant responsible person of Dakota

Through this cooperation, Dakota has become fully aware of the reliability of UnionTech's 3D printing solution with printer of excellent quality + super convenient printing software + various applications of 3D printing materials. According to Fernando, a responsible person of Dakota, the Company had purchased other 3D printers before, but chose to end cooperation due to unsatisfactory device and service quality. Fernando expressed that the future holds a greater prospect of development for 3D printing technology, and it will be a world of digital production.
