IPFL is set to showcase its latest acquisition in micro 3D printing technology at TCT 3Sixty this June. The show is firmly established as the UK’s leading additive manufacturing event.

Situated in Hall 1, Booth F41, IPFL will be running a live demonstration of its microArch S240 micro 3D printer, developed by Boston Micro Fabrication. The machine produces printable components to an accuracy of 10 microns (μm), surpassing the scale of comparable additive manufacturing technologies. The machine has further enabled IPFL to maximise short-run production speeds. The microArch S240 can print components 10x faster than using conventional methods such as machining or injection moulding. Its addition to a growing line-up of plastic printing services lends itself to IPFL’s promise of clean and ready to use components in just 48 hours.

IPFL Director Adam Bloomfield, said: “We pride ourselves in the production speed and quality of our products. TCT is a great opportunity to showcase this to our customers, and this year it will be demonstrated by the microArch S240. The machine can print with a variety of materials, including composites and ceramic, so it is a revolutionary piece of technology that we at IPFL cannot wait to present.”

In addition to the company’s latest micro 3D printing technology, visitors to TCT 3Sixty will also get to discover IPFL’s versatile 3D printing services.

The team will be on hand to discuss the advantages IPFL offers in batch production through its multi-jet-fusion (MJF) technology, boasting fast setups, smooth surface finishes for parts, and no expensive tooling. MJF utilizes powder-based material that is heated and fused by a thermal print head. Its fast production times follow those of the company’s high resolution stereolithography (SLA) technology. SLA utilises UV light to cure photosensitive polymer in even layers to build the part, creating complex geometries with excellent detail. Its print speed delivers finished parts in a matter of hours.
