Two German companies combine resources for micro 3D printing
04 May 2014
3D-Micromac AG and EOS GmbH are pooling their respective technological know-how in the area micro laser sintering (MLS) technology by establishing a new company, 3D MicroPrint GmbH.

Its purpose is to advance the development and commercialisation of MLS technology and to identify and establish more solutions in the field of micro technology.
Target applications include nozzles for the automotive industry, components for medical devices and the individualisation of jewellery. There is also a growing demand for micro parts in mould-making and aerospace.
3D-Micromac and EOS have been developing MLS jointly since 2006. The first system successfully began operation at a German research institute earlier this year.
3D MicroPrint has moved into new, larger premises on the Chemnitz Smart Systems Campus, where development and service capacities are being expanded.
Using additive manufacturing, even a batch size of one can be produced at reasonable cost-per-part.
The technology offers a high degree of freedom of design and the capacity to integrate and optimise functionality. Individualisation of products in series production processes can be accomplished without difficulty.
3D printing and other inventions are making serious contributions to the future of dentistry. Carefree Dental have put together a document detailing how the future of dentistry is facing some big challenges.
