BUSINESS BMF TO ACCELERATE MICROPRINTING EXPANSION AFTER RAISING ANOTHER $43M

Microscale 3D printer manufacturer Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has announced the closure of a $43 million Series C funding round.

Led by Chinese VC firm Shenzhen Capital Group Co. (SCGC), the investment comes at a time of significant growth for BMF, which has managed to double its global install base over the last year. Using the capital raised from the move, the company now plans to step up its expansion, by investing in product R&D and building out its marketing team.

“Our business has scaled strongly, and we plan to use new capital to further expand our capability,” said John Kawola, CEO of BMF. “Our global reach has been appreciated and valued by our customers, and our systems are now being used all over the world to both prototype parts that previously could not be 3D printed and drive end-use part production where conventional methods are difficult.”

BMF secures 43 million USD in funding

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has announced the closing of a Series C funding round at 43 million USD.

The round was led by Shenzhen Capital Group and will be used to support BMF’s push into the 3D printing of end-use applications. This will manifest in the advancement of product development, sales, marketing, and customer support at BMF.

BMF came to market in 2016, initially in Asia and later internationally, to address the 3D printing of small, high precision parts with its Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL). The company says the demand for parts with micron level tolerance is on the rise, with BMF doubling its install base in the past year with systems installed at more than 200 customer locations around the world. These customers are operating in markets such as electronics, medical device, optics/photonics, microfluidics and advanced research.

BMF raises an enormous round to 3D-print tiny things

Boston Micro Fabrication — BMF among friends — is one of the biggest names in 3D-printing teeny-tiny things. The company just announced a Series C to continue its journey, as it announces it doubled its install base over the past year.

“Our business has scaled strongly, and we plan to use the new capital to further expand our capability,” stated John Kawola, CEO of BMF. “Our global reach has been appreciated and valued by our customers, and our systems are now being used all over the world to both prototype parts that previously could not be 3D-printed and drive end-use part production where conventional methods are difficult.”

BMF Raises $43M in Series C

Boston Micro Fabrication, the pioneer in microscale 3D printing systems, today announced the successful closing of a Series C round of funding, totaling $43 million. The round was led by Shenzhen Capital Group Co., Ltd.

Additive manufacturing has proven to add the most value when used to produce parts that are expensive or difficult to make using conventional techniques. In the past, those parts usually fell into two categories: low volume and/or high geometric complexity. Since its founding in 2016, BMF has been addressing another market need: small, high precision parts. The demand for parts on the millimeter scale, with micron level tolerance, is on the rise and, historically, there were no additive manufacturing systems capable of producing at this level of quality while at the same time providing good throughput. BMF has changed that paradigm with its microArch 3D printing systems, built upon patented Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) technology that enables ultra high-resolution parts (down to 2μm) to be 3D printed with unparalleled accuracy, precision and speed.

BMF raises $43M for 3D printing tech

Boston Micro Fabrication has raised a $43 million Series C led by Shenzhen Capital Group. BMF, which has offices in the US, China and Japan, develops micro precision 3D printers for manufacturers.

Boston Micro Fabrication Raises $43M in Series C Funding

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), a Chongqing, China-based provider of microscale 3D printing systems, raised $43M in Series C funding. The round was led by Shenzhen Capital Group. The company intends to use the funds to advance product development, sales and marketing and customer support as they continue to expand and serve its global customer base.

Led by CEO John Kawola, Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) specializes in micro precision 3D printing. The company’s microArch systems uses a 3D printing approach called PμSL (Projection Micro Stereolithography) that leverages light, customizable optics, a high-quality movement platform and controlled processing technology to produce accurate and precise high-resolution 3D prints for product development, research and industrial short run production.

$43M to Drive Tiny 3D Printing Tech for Boston Micro Fabrication

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has closed a Series C round of funding totaling $43 million, led by Shenzhen Capital Group Co., Ltd. (SCGC). This large infusion of capital will allow the startup to continue expanding its micro 3D printing technology.

Founded in 2016, BMF focused on building 3D printers that rely on Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) for millimeter-scale parts with micron-level tolerances. With systems of varying levels of resolution, ranging from 25 all the way down to 2 microns, the Boston startup’s microArch 3D printers are already used in a variety of sectors, including medical device and electronics manufacturing.
