As products get smaller and smaller, the impact on product development is significant, as the challenge to efficiently and cost effectively manufacture small components increases.

In particular, micro electrical mechanical systems (MEMS) and microfluidics are two industries that are facing this challenge head on. In MEMS, complex mini machines are more often being integrated with electrical components and have dimensions that measure in microns. Microfluidics devices require assembly of multiple pieces which can add design complexity, cost and long lead times. Current manufacturing methods such as micromachining, micro molding and lithography add multiple steps, long wait times and are very expensive.

You’ll hear from Norman Wen, Associate Director of Chip Development at Emulate, to hear how many microfluidics manufacturers are using micro 3D printing to alleviate some of these challenges. Using PμSL technology, engineers can print small parts rapidly in materials with 2μm resolution and +/-10μm accuracy.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • How additive manufacturing and miniaturization are converging and what this means for the future
  • Real world examples of how micro 3D printing is playing a significant role in solving challenges and steering innovation
  • A little more about PµSL technology and how it’s becoming a game-changer in MEMS and Microfluidics applications
