Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) is looking to pioneer microscale 3D printing technology, with the full launch of its MicroArch solution for industrial short-run use.

MicroArch uses a proprietary approach to DLP 3D printing named PμSL (Projection Micro-Stereolithography) that leverages light, high-precision optics and increase motion control to produce parts at a scale more than 100 times smaller than a human hair.

In industries such as electrical connectors, small medical devices, lab on a chip, 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.
