ATomic LAyer NanoprinTer, for rapid micro- and nanoprototyping of complex multi-material 2D/3D structures with high-resolution

Project description

High-resolution 3D printing machine moves to the commercial stage

Three-dimensional printing holds tremendous potential for machining small and complex features in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). However, the relatively low printing resolution, the few printing materials and the lack of design flexibility have been a limiting factor against more widespread proliferation of MEMS 3D printing. Danish-based company ATLANT created the first 3D printer for rapid multi-material prototyping on the micro and nanoscales that combines three technologies in one machine – atomic layer deposition, microfluidics, and 3D printing. EU funding of the ATLANT3D project will enable the company to bridge the remaining steps towards the full-scale commercialisation of the technology. In the long term, the vision is for ATLANT3D to become the one device needed for prototyping in any micro-/nanofabrication environment.
