With the micro 3D printers available at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), micro- and precision workpieces can be manufactured directly from digital 3D models. With this method, prototypes or replacement parts can be produced cost-effectively and accurately. Thus, for example, even very small and complex geometric details can be integrated into functional components of a normal size.

The layering technique allows for layer resolutions between 3 µm and 50 µm. Within a layer, the minimum line width is around 7 µm, and the outer contour accuracy is +/- 2 µm.

Usually, acrylate-based polymers are used, but upon request the customer’s own polymer blends can be used, too.
