Nanofabrica Promotes Innovation in Micro Manufacturing

Earlier this year, Tel-Aviv based additive manufacturing innovator, Nanofabrica, commercially launched its micro 3D printing technology that hits micron-level reliability over a build package of 5cm x 5 cm x 10 cm. This ground-breaking technology now offers a viable mass production alternative to traditional manufacturing processes such as micro molding, and its characteristics open up the opportunity for important development in product design and development.

 

It is time for companies associated in the manufacture of micro parts and components or larger parts with micron tolerances to re-assess the possibilities that exist as an additive manufacturing technology enters the micro manufacturing arena.

 

Nanofabrica's technology is letting manufacturers to disrupt the way that a product is designed, developed, and manufactured, key among the possibilities being the opportunity to take benefit of the way in which additive manufacturing allows for the design and production of extremely complex geometries at no additional cost.

 

Nanofabrica's technology is also much more agile and flexible than regular alternative manufacturing technologies, the necessity for no tooling meaning that shapes can be adjusted with little expense, and the prospective for mass customization is now open to people in the micro manufacturing sector.

 

Through the use of a micro additive manufacturing process, manufacturers can also enhance workflow, the technology producing less scrap and fewer tools than conventional manufacturing processes. It also promotes the reduction of iterative procedure, assembly, and inventory. This means that significant functional cost benefits are now attainable at the micro manufacturing level.

 

While the Nanofabrica micron-level additive manufacturing method can cater for high volume applications (multiple thousands of small parts and components fitting easily in the machine's build envelope), the beginning of a 3D printing solution for micro manufacturers also means that OEMs are able to lessen the reliance on economies of scale, as the technology makes full production runs measured in thousands as inexpensive as producing one. The Nanofabrica technology makes low to medium-volume production runs possible that have previously been uneconomic due to the high tooling and set-up costs linked with traditional manufacturing alternatives.

 

Until now, additive manufacturing has not been able to reach the exacting preciseness and resolution that is needed by manufacturers at the forefront of miniaturization and micro manufacturing.

 

Nanofabrica's micro AM technology appeals to an array of manufacturers that up until now have not been able to cost-effectively or efficiently fulfil design intent using standard manufacturing processes. In addition, being agnostic to part complication, and therefore enabling the manufacture of hollow structures, holes, complicated interior details, and atypical shapes, Nanofabrica's micro AM technology is advertising innovation and therefore is accurately described a true enabling technology.
