BMF Initiative Aims to Develop New Products Enabled by PµSL

 The BMF Research Institute is being formed to develop end-product ideas enabled by BMF's micro-3D printing platform.

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has opened a new research and development center in San Diego, CA. The BMF Research Institute is being formed specifically to develop and incubate end-product ideas that are enabled by BMF's micro-3D printing platform.

 

BMF's Projection Micro Stereolithography or PµSL platform was developed to fulfill a need in the additive manufacturing market, according to the company. These are parts that are typically on the centimeter scale, with tolerance requirements often in the lower tens of micron range. Industrial customers, having tested and used these systems for development, now see the potential for end-part production. 

“We are currently working with researchers, product designers and other collaboration partners on new product ideas,” says John Kawola, CEO of Boston Micro Fabrication. “We recently raised additional capital to continue the development of our platform. But these funds will also be used for end-product development and commercialization. We expect these two legs will be complementary to each other with the broader goal of unleashing the power of additive manufacturing in micro-manufacturing.”

The efforts will be led by Dr. Chunguang Xia, CTO and co-founder of BMF. The new center will engage in research and engineering with cooperation from other BMF engineering groups and research centers in Shenzhen and Chongqing, China; Tokyo and Boston.
