Editor’s Pick: Micron-resolution production 3D printing
Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) introduces the microArch S240, the first micro-precision 3D printer suitable for industrial production. This new model increases build volume, speed and material capacity compared to the company’s previous model.
The microArch S240 is based on BMF’s Projection Micro Stereolithography technology (PµSL), a technique that allows for rapid photopolymerization of a layer of liquid polymer using a flash of UV light at micro-scale resolution. BMF says this process makes possible production of intricate, exact and replicable parts “optimal for end-part and prototyping use cases across a wide range of industries, including medical device manufacturing, microfluidics, MEMS, biotech and pharma, electronics, education, and research and development.”
