Another creature of FEMTOprint has found a new home

Muzzano, August 2020 - Despite these challenging times, a new machine has been successfully installed at the TU/Eindhoven.

It is a true pleasure to work with the highly professional team at FEMTOprint, from initial inquiry and technical detailing to the final installation and training. Their in-house scientists and technologists not only ensure the high performance of the machine, but also provide a deep level support to the users. Their thoroughness, passion for their jobs and focus on their customers gave me a high level of confidence that the f200 machine will be a successful addition to our lab.

TECHNOLOGY

FEMTOPRINT® is a 3D printing technology that uses light as a powerful ink source. The beam, focused inside glass, locally modifies the refractive index and density of the material. Depending on exposure parameters, waveguides can be formed to realize complex integrated optical components or three-dimensional structures with additional chemical etching. All of these features are possible with high complexity, precision, and aspect ratio. 
 

FEMTOPRINT® is the sole 3D microfabrication platform capable of material structuring using arbitrary patterns to produce challenging, monolithic 3D shapes in glass with high precision, sub-micron resolution, and with an additional polishing step, optical surface quality.

Advanced Studies Manager, Oticon Medical, France

​FEMTOprint provide us an incredible quality of work. In a one shoot try, the component was much better than other known technics. Finding a such partner will enable us to develop more accurate and realistic models for the design of our future devices.

Responsable Laboratoire & Technologies, Ulysse Nardin SA, Switzerland

​It is an enormous pleasure to work in collaboration with all the team of FEMTOprint. They take all the challenges we give to them for the fabrication of high complex 3D microstructures made out of glass. These horological microparts could not be done with others technologies with such a high degree of accuracy (which is about 2 to 5 µm). Little channels of about 0.4mm or microtexts are also included into the material.
