A comparison of stereolithography, digital light processing and projection microstereolithography

Chuck Hull invented the first stereolithography (SLA) printer in the early 1980s and this led to the co-founding of 3D Systems, one of the leading companies in the 3D printing industry today. Since then, there have been several variants of SLA, all fundamentally based on the vat photopolymerisation process, namely using light to cure a photosensitive material. There are other polymer 3D printing methods, such as fused deposition modelling (FDM), material jetting (MJ) and selective laser sintering (SLS). They all work on the same basic 3D printing premise of taking digital data and building a part layer by layer, and they all have their unique advantages and disadvantages.

BMF Has Released its Highest-Resolution Micro-Scale 3D Printer, microArch S230

As summer winds down and school gets back into session, so are companies kicking it back into gear. After a restful break, 3D printing companies have signalled the start of September with a flurry of news. Among these, Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), a leading American micro-scale 3D printer manufacturer has announced the launch of its latest micro-precision solution: the microArch S230 3D printer.

BMF Introduces microArch S230 Microscale 3D Printer

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), developer of microscale 3D printing systems, unveiled the microArch S230, the latest addition to its roster of industrial-grade micro-precision 3D printers. This next generation version of BMF’s highest resolution system is designed for applications that require ultra-high resolution prints (down to 2μm) with accuracy, precision and speed, the company reports.

BMF announced a new microArch 3D printer, the S230.

The Boston-based company develops 3D printers with extreme resolution. Their current line of equipment, for example, offers a resolution of up to an incredibly tiny 2μm (that’s 0.002mm).

BMF Introduces New High-Resolution microArch S230 Microscale 3D Printer

MIT spin-out Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) specializes in microscale 3D printing, and launched its original microArch system globally in February of 2020, just in the nick of time before the COVID-19 pandemic began in earnest. Not long after, its microArch S240 for short-run industrial production was introduced, and today, the startup introduced its latest industrial-grade micro-precision AM system: the high-resolution microArch S230. Additionally, BMF is introducing three new materials as well.

Boston Micro Fabrication Launches Ultra-High Resolution 3D Printer

Microscale 3D-printing pioneer Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) today launches its new industrial-grade microArch S230 printer, plus three new 3D-printing materials. The new printer offers microprecision and speed for applications that require ultra-high resolution prints, achieving down to 2-μm accuracy.

BMF launches ultra-high-resolution microArch S230 3D printing system alongside 3 new materials

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has introduced its latest Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) 3D printing system at RAPID + TCT in Chicago.

The next-generation microArch S230 system has been designed to produce ‘ultra-high-resolution’ parts down to 2μm at high accuracies and speeds. It has been unveiled at RAPID + TCT alongside three new materials which open up applications in the medical ad electronic sector.
