Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has launched a new partnership with Shree Rapid Technologies (SRT), marking the entry of the BMF microArch 2 µm series, 10 µm series and 25 µm series 3D printers in India.

As micro 3D printing applications spread across a wide variety of industries, BMF microArch 3D printers, having the combination of ultra-high resolution, accuracy and precision, allow for more intricate, exact and replicable parts. With the ability to reach resolutions as low as 2 µm, industries such as medical, electronics, microfluidics will benefit by being able to print stents and prosthetics, electrical components, connectors and tools like lab-on-chip and other devices. Overcoming the challenges faced in traditional manufacturing techniques makes micro 3D printing a more viable production option.

At the forefront of expanding the 3D printing industry in India and pushing for a more Atmanirbhar Bharat -- a more self-reliant nation -- SRT provides a complete range of digital manufacturing technologies from reverse engineering to post processing. Partnering with BMF, the pioneers in microscale 3D printing systems, makes SRT one of the only companies providing such technologies and services for global digital manufacturing brands.

“We are excited to partner with SRT in order to expand our sales and support network in India. SRT is driving 3D printing adoption across a number of industry verticals and is the backbone of the 3D printing industry in India, supporting enterprises and academics throughout the country. With their expertise, knowledge and experience they will position BMF to drive the enablement of precision manufacturing and miniaturization within medical devices, electronics, communications systems, photonics and beyond,” said John Kawola, CEO of BMF.

“BMF has been able to provide a solution for an elusive process of rapid tooling for micro molding through its advanced projection micro stereolithography, which we feel is the need of the hour for 3D printing in India. A breakthrough technology that can help change the way micro parts are manufactured across industrial applications. Partnering with BMF has helped strengthen SRT’s portfolio of digital manufacturing, offering technologies for not just large scale 3D printed parts but also microscale parts,” said Nitin Chaudhari, partner, SRT.
