BMF Announces Global Launch of microArch 3D Printers, Appoints Ex-Ultimaker President to CEO

BY Laura Galloway

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), a microscale 3D printing specialist, has announced the global launch and rebranding of its microArch 3D printers.

Previously known as nanoArch, the microArch systems utilizes the company’s proprietary Projection Micro-Stereolithography (PμSL) 3D printing technology to manufacture high-resolution microscale parts.

BMF has initiated its global launch of the microArch 3D printers following an initial roll-out of the systems in Asia. It also follows two recent updates from the firm: the relocation of its commercial headquarters from Shenzhen, China, to Boston, Massachusetts, and the appointment of John Kawola as CEO, Global Operations, formerly the North American president of Ultimaker.

“When it comes to additive manufacturing the next frontier of innovation isn’t big, it’s high precision, small parts,” comments John Kawola, CEO at BMF. “We’re seeing a convergence of major trends as the lines between additive manufacturing and miniaturization begin to dissolve. There’s no question that additive manufacturing starts to lose its appeal as parts get smaller.”

BMF was founded in 2016 by Dr. Nick Fang, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He founded the company alongside Dr. Xiaoning He, a serial entrepreneur and Dr. Chunguang Xia, a 3D printing technologist.
