IPFL to showcase latest microfabrication technology at TCT 3Sixty
The company will be demonstrating its microArch S240 micro 3D printer - developed by Boston Micro Fabrication
Industrial Plastic Fabrications Ltd. (IPFL), experts in plastic machining, fabrication, and 3D printing, is set to showcase its latest acquisition in micro 3D printing technology at TCT 3Sixty, the UK’s leading additive manufacturing event, on 7–8 June 2023. At the event, IPFL will be running a live demonstration of its microArch S240 micro 3D printer, a machine that produces printable components to an accuracy of 10 microns (μm), surpassing the scale of comparable additive manufacturing technologies – developed by Boston Micro Fabrication.
The microArch S240 has enabled IPFL to maximize short-run production speeds, thanks to its ability to print components 10x faster than using conventional methods such as machining or injection molding. Its addition to a growing line-up of plastic 3D printing services lends itself to IPFL’s promise of clean and ready-to-use components. IPFL’s plastic 3D printing service utilizes the latest 3D printing technology, including Polyjet, FDM, HP MJF, and SLA 3D Printing technology to print, post-process, and deliver prototypes within 48 hours.
“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,” said Adam Bloomfield, Director of IPFL.
In addition to the company’s latest micro 3D printing technology, visitors to TCT 3Sixty will also have the opportunity to discover IPFL’s versatile 3D printing services. The team will be on hand to discuss the advantages IPFL offers in terms of batch production through its MJF technology – boasting fast setups, smooth surface finishes for parts, and no expensive tooling. IPFL will also present its flagship multi-material services in Polyjet technology from Stratasys, specialized FDM, and precision CNC machining capabilities.
