Microfabrica, the leader in micro-scale additive manufacturing, today announced that it will feature its proprietary technology, MICA Freeform, at the RAPID Conference and Exposition (Booth 1629) in Detroit, MI set for June 10-12. MICA Freeform is the only high volume, micro-scale, additive manufacturing platform on the market.
Like 3D printing, MICA Freeform produces 3D objects in layers directly from a digital model. This capability allows for unlimited design flexibility and eliminates the need for assembly. However, unlike 3D Printing, Microfabrica exploits the semiconductor manufacturing paradigm to achieve high volume production with extreme precision. Further, Microfabrica's technology employs chemically pure, fully dense metals to produce robust commercial solutions.
"For high tech industries, the drive to miniaturization is immutable," said Eric Miller, CEO of Microfabrica. "As conventional manufacturing technologies fail to keep pace, additive manufacturing is emerging as the disruptive alternative. Microfabrica is uniquely positioned at the forefront of these converging trends, having shipped over 50 million commercial devices since the introduction of MICA Freeform in 2009."
Microfabrica supports breakthrough product solutions for its customers in the aerospace, medical device, and semiconductor industries. For many applications in these sectors, Microfabrica's technology is the only proven production solution.
Microfabrica is an advanced technology company with a proprietary, additive manufacturing process that yields complex metal structures and assemblies at a scale not previously possible. Microfabrica's technology appeals to high tech industries, such as aerospace, medical device, and semiconductor, where the drive to miniaturization has been limited by conventional manufacturing technologies.
