How Micro 3D Printing is Paving a New Path for Micro Manufacturing

Micro manufacturing methods have evolved over time from subtractive processes such as milling and machining to micro forming and micro injection molding. In the last few years, micro 3D printing has become a viable new path for micro manufacturing.

A micro 3D printing method called Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) is emerging as a new technology able to produce parts at a length scale suited to (micro) prototypes, patterns, tools, jigs/fixtures and end-use parts. Download this webinar to learn details behind its use, applications, and suitable materials.
