3D Micro- and Mesoprinting

In the field of activity »3D Micro- and Mesoprinting« we produce almost arbitrarily complex, high-resolution prototypes and components, e.g. for biomedical and high-frequency applications or for validating model calculations.

We map the complete process chain – from design to the functional component. Depending on the geometry to be realized, we use a combination of additive laser writing and subtractive ablative processes such as ablative sputtering, as well as micro-ablation processes for repetitive geometries. The cross-scale approach enables us to manufacture components with cm3 volume at structural details of less than one micrometer.

3D Micro and Meso Printing of Arbitrary Geometries, Large Material Selection and On-Chip

In addition to complex geometries, special material properties are often required for the function of microstructures. You need conductive microstructures or very special surfaces? We print a wide variety of materials, ranging from silver to polymers to biocompatible materials, and also offer surface-conforming ceramic coatings.

Positioning and integrating microstructures is often a particular challenge and a potential source of errors. Here you benefit from direct printing on almost any substrate, e.g. on-chip or other components provided by you. The processes we use are virtually independent of the material, geometry and topography of the substrate. Optionally, they can be removed from the substrate non-destructively after printing.

Example Projects
