Introducing our newest micro-precision 3D printer

The microArch S230

The microArch S230 brings unprecedented design freedom and part resolution to researchers and manufacturers needing micro parts with tight tolerances for prototyping through production. The printer is built upon BMF’s patented Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) technology, a technique that allows for rapid photopolymerization of an entire layer of liquid polymer using a flash of UV light at micro-scale resolution, but with a larger built volume (50x50x50mm) and up to 5 times faster prints than previous models in the 2μm series.

BMF Launches New Ceramic and High-Temp Materials

BMF adds to its portfolio of engineering and ceramic resins suitable for end-use parts including:

  • AL (Alumina) Ceramic – A biocompatible and chemical-resistant ceramic resin meant for high temperature, high strength and high stiffness applications such as tooling (injection molding), casing and housings and medical devices. 
  • HT 200 – A durable, high-temperature and high-strength resin that can be soldered, and designed for end-use in electrical connectors and electrical components.
  • MT (Magnesium Titanate) Ceramic – The combination of high dielectric constant and low dielectric loss make MT Ceramic suitable for millimeter wave applications such as antennas, wave guides and other electronic components.

3D Integrated Microelectronic Subsystems and Additive Manufacturing

New 3D printing technology enables more complex electrical routing for 3D integrated microelectronic subsystems

Using BMF’s microArch S130 model, HRL Laboratories, LLC, has now demonstrated ceramic interposers with previously impossible slanted and curved vias with diameters of less than 10µm. Vias are small openings in insulating layers that allow conductive connections between semiconductor layers in integrated circuits.

When you look at ordering parts, there are three things to consider: quality, cost, and lead time. Other 3D printers can meet cost and lead time, and injection molding can meet quality and cost. With BMF’s micro-precision 3D printers, we get all three.

– Olivia Enneking. Design Engineer, Kaleidoscope Innovation

We chose BMF’s microArch 3D Printer due to its ability to replicate critical micro features. Their unique Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) technology prints 3D parts with ultra-high resolution and accuracy, which is key to our business. This is the first 3D printer we’ve encountered that can print micro-precision parts, with the dimensional accuracy and precision that our customers require at this stage of product development. We have put the BMF parts through the same rigorous CT scanning inspection process of our micro molded components and were amazed that dimensionally the parts fell within the tolerances required. Our customers have been equally amazed.

– Donna Bibber, VP of Business Development, Isometric Micro Molding, Inc.

We are very excited to own the 1st S130 Micro Stereolithography 3D printer in Europe. The S130 machine from BMF has a good compensation between printing resolution and processing speed, which provides us a fantastic tool in production of customized geometries with a volume of centimetres at a few micron resolution. The arrival of this machine will help boost our current research in 3D printed electronics as well as biomedical directions.

– Dr. Yinfeng, University of Nottingham

The parts say it all. The first time you see a part from a BMF printer you will be amazed. 3D printing, until now, has never been able to produce parts of such precision, and accuracy. Being able to capture thin walls and fine features at this scale and resolution, with unmatched reliability, is unprecedented from any 3D printing technology. This will absolutely usher in new industries, that have previously ignored 3D printing, to the world of rapid design iteration.
