Microlight3D Takeoffs Altraspin 3D Printer for High-Resolution Micro-Parts
Novel 3D printing technique generates extremely flawless surfaced micro-parts without the necessity for post-processing. Thus, it saves cost and time in industrial prototyping. Microlight3D, a speciality producer of ultra-high resolution 3D microprinting machines for scientific and industrial uses launched Altraspin recently. It is a compact, turnkey 3D printer for generating extremely complicated micro-parts along with the sub-micron resolution.
In case you didn’t know yet, Altraspin can print micro-parts along with a resolution of 100x smaller than a standard of hair for uses that need high-quality surface finish and exact precision. Such include making printing shapes, micro-sensors, and micro-optics which fit in microfluidic devices. It’s also suitable to surface structuration, micromechanics, microrobotics, tissue engineering, cell culture, and metamaterials.
According to the company, they created Altrapsin to answer to the manufacturing needs for faster prototyping and customisation of submicron parts which aren’t controlled by their organic and geometric shape. They eliminated another restriction through ranging user option in the materials accessible for 3D microprinting.
Altraspin is considered to be matched with a wide array of biomaterials and polymers, which includes those of their customers. No doubt, the submicron resolution their technology acquires has been key to their massive success within the scientific market. Microlight3D expects that industrial corporations will also take advantage of the benefits of their 3D printers for micro-parts. They are geared to aid them to surpass the limitations and lower time to market.
What’s more, the sub-micron is widely owed to the 2-photon polymerisation direct laser writing method of Altraspin and the proprietary incessant print flow procedure of Microlight3D. That technique allows the printing of sub-micron resolutions as well as super smooth finishes by surpassing the more average layer-by-layer printing technique utilised in some AM technologies which limits resolution to 25µm. The print finish of Altraspin is very smooth where parts don’t even need any post-processing. Eradication of that stage brings manufacturers benefits in both cost and time.
More About Altraspin’s Features
Did you know that Altraspin boasts a new TPP slicing tool, high-writing speeds, hi-writing resolution and precision for complicated 3D structures? Indeed, it’s suitable with any CAD models, and its compact design is compatible with laminar flow cabinets, sterile and clean-room settings. That avoid contaminations of the wafer.
What’s more, Microlight3D dedicated on comfort the design of Altraspin. When the user has created a 3D model with the help of standard CAD tools and selected a proper polymer material, the algorithms of Microlight3D measures the path which the laser will take to make the object. A laser pulse composes inside the liquid-material bath, hardening the path it takes along with the exceptional precision, less than a micron.
The laser can move continuously and freely. Thus, it can create the most complicated architectures, without the constraints of the conventional layer-by-layer method. After the operation is finished, a solvent removes the excess monomer, letting users handle the object immediately, similar to the first model.
