Bigger Is Not Always Better with 3D Printing but Micro Precision Is Huge

BY Nita Vaidya-Zannino

Bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to 3D printing. As products and machinery continue to decrease in size and increase in complexity, manufacturers must produce a myriad of intricate components with ultra-high 3D printing precision. Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has been at the technological forefront of reducing costs and accelerating innovation in this highly complex sector.

Additive manufacturing systems such as those from BMF can yield high-volume manufacturing and sophisticated micro-details. The speed and adaptability of 3D printers, while novel to the micro-printing world, is a breakthrough technology that will drive the modernization of the manufacturing process across a wide array of industries.

To spotlight the growing need to advance microscale 3D printing technology, Informa Markets – Engineering, the organizers of Automation Technology Expo (ATX), Design & Manufacturing (D&M), Pack, Plastec, Cannabis Packaging Summit, and publisher of Design News, will present Virtual Engineering Days, a three-day digital conference and exhibition bringing best-in-class education and supplier sourcing directly to the design, engineering, and manufacturing communities.

Taking place June 15 through 17, the virtual event will provide a unique meeting opportunity for the global advanced manufacturing community and features a digital expo floor showcasing many industry-leading companies driving the future of smart manufacturing. The conference will have over 30 sessions across three days that dive into key issues and trends affecting today’s engineers and cover 3D printing, smart manufacturing, packaging, plastics and materials, sustainability, and career development.
