BMF MicroArch S130
Following its initial launch in Asia, BMF’s MicroArch 3D printer is now being rolled out globally.
MicroArch uses a proprietary approach to DLP 3D printing named PµSL (Projection Micro- Stereolithography).
This leverages light, high-precision optics and increased motion control to produce parts at a scale more than 100 times smaller than a human hair.
In industries such as medical devices and small electronics packaging, the technology should outperform the traditional approach of injection moulding, where complex mouldings can start at $200,000, but only require sub 10,000-unit production runs.
