Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), a pioneer in microscale 3D printing systems, announced the global launch of microArch, an accurate and precise high-resolution microscale 3D printer for commercial use. microArch introduces a number of technological breakthroughs that allow the technology to print ultra high-resolution parts accurately and precisely at scale. The microArch was launched over the past 18 months in Asia and over 40 systems have been installed for multiple customers across a range of industries.

“When it comes to additive manufacturing the next frontier of innovation isn’t big, it’s high precision, small parts,” said John Kawola, CEO at BMF. “We’re seeing a convergence of major trends as the lines between additive manufacturing and miniaturization begin to dissolve. There’s no question that additive manufacturing starts to lose its appeal as parts get smaller. Challenges with precision and accuracy have stymied innovation for engineers and manufacturers looking to develop small, high-resolution parts. That’s all about to change with the introduction of microArch.”
