Boston Micro Fabrication
Boston Micro Fabrication is the world leader in advanced additive manufacturing solutions based on Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) technology. Many leading companies worldwide are adopting PµSL to 3D print true microstructures with ultra-high printing resolution (2µm~50µm) and printing tolerance (+/- 10µm ~ +/- 25µm).
BMF empowers companies with complete design freedom to enable the creation of geometries that can be manufactured no other way. The combination of ultra-high resolution, accuracy, and precision allows for more intricate, exact, and replicable parts, at scale and tolerances that match those of micro injection molded parts.
With an open material system, you can choose to print with BMF’s specially formulated liquid polymers or with the photopolymer of your choice. BMF has relationships with some of the largest material manufacturers in the world, working to formulate and collaborate on new material options which will allow you to achieve the results you need based on your application.
Micro-precision 3D printing is the optimal manufacturing process for a variety of 3D printing applications across a wide variety of industries including:
Medical Devices: 3D printing has already revolutionized how the medical community treats patients, but this is only the beginning. From stents to prosthetics to surgical planning, 3D printing can be used to print prototypes that optimize patient care. Enter the addition of biocompatible materials, the possibilities are endless. With the ability to achieve 2µm resolution, the microArch series of 3D printers are the perfect tool to print single-use medical components for medical 3D printing applications.
Electronics: Electronics is an industry that has benefited from a large number of new 3D printing applications. Innovation in electrical components and connectors continues to evolve as consumers and businesses look to expand performance while making devices that are smaller and smaller. This has challenged the connector industry, as traditional manufacturing techniques start to become less viable for production. Micro 3D printing offers new ways to produce these complex—and small—designs.
Microfluidics: Various industries have begun to implement microfluidic technologies for both production and development applications. The world of medical and drug research continues to find ways to mimic the human body through tools like Lab-on-Chip and other devices. The micro 3D printing of these products opens up new capability to not only create more accurate and complex systems, but to do so at a cost and speed that is currently not attainable.
Micro Mechatronics: Valves, pumps, sensors, speakers, microphones—any application where capability and performance is expanded through the use of small, high-precision components. These components are difficult and expensive to mold or machine today. The microArch series opens up a new range of capability and geometric freedom that has been historically out of reach for current additive manufacturing platforms.
Education / Research: The world of innovation is continually getting bigger, but parts are getting smaller and smaller. The innovators of tomorrow are the students of today. By using micro-scale AM platforms, academia is offered the tools to push the boundaries of product design, drug discovery, microfiltration, and MEMS research, widening the breadth and discovering a wide range of new 3D printing applications.
