BMF Unveils The MicroArch S240 Micro-Precision 3D Printer

BMF released details today about an industrial 3D printer targeting the micro parts market.

The Boston-based company has been on our pages earlier this year when they revealed their technology. The resin-based 3D printing process they use is called “PμSL”, for “Projection Micro-Stereolithography”. PμSL is able to achieve an astonishing resolution of 2μ, or 0.002mm. This is accomplished due to some technological magic that allows them to project UV light in extreme resolution.

Now the company has released a new device, the microArch S240. This is designed for short-run industrial production.

What does “production” mean? Generally it’s the ability to run continuously to produce volumes of objects over a longer period. We tried defining “production 3D printers” in a previous story, and I think the microArch S240 hits a lot of the characteristics necessary for that classification.
