nano3Dprint, an additive manufacturing solutions provider, has unveiled its latest D4200S printer – a noteworthy advancement in sub-micron AM technology. According to the company, the system is capable of a 20 nanometers print resolution, and is the highest-resolution additive print system available.
nano3Dprint is the first to introduce this technology to the additive manufacturing market and aims to expand the range of technology available to researchers and engineers, while continuing to push the boundaries of AM.
Leveraging scanning probe nanotechnology, the D4200S is expected to make significant advancements in nano-scale 3D printing – while prioritizing versatility, ease, and precision. The printer’s nano-deposition mode is capable of printing between 20 nm to 250 μm, and achieves ultimate printing positional accuracy at <1 nanometer. Additionally, with its high-speed micro-deposition mode, the D4200S dispenses functional materials with feature sizes that range from 5 μm to 400 μm.
Capable of printing functional materials for electronics, prototyping, R&D, industrial applications, and bioprinting, the D4200S print heads accommodate various print materials, including gold, silver, copper, polymers, metallic oxides, organic compounds, and photosensitive polymers. The system is specifically engineered to enable advanced innovations, and includes AFM capabilities for analysis, nanowriting, and patented 3D printing technology – enabling users to print computer chips or set foundational advancements for complex biological structures. Users can also utilize the D4200S for maskless lithography, mask repair, and tissue engineering.
“Our goal with introducing the D4200S is to provide accessible next-generation technology for top-tier research labs and innovative startups alike,” said Gretta Perlmutter, Customer Success Manager at nano3Dprint. “For example, one D4200S printer can essentially replace all the equipment necessary for lithographic processing in a cleanroom. While a fully equipped cleanroom could cost millions of dollars, the D4200S is a fraction of the cost.”
Customers can secure early commercial availability of the D4200S micro-to-nanoscale printer with a 25% ($62,500) minimum down payment. The total cost of the D4200S printer is $250,000, and shipments will begin later this year.
