3D contact printhead for highly dynamic applications (clean room) | High-precision and viscosity-independent printing of various materials
Additive manufacturing / 3D Printing


Fast short movements with high precision in the vertical

This high-precision positioning system is specially designed for cost-effective contact 3D printing processes. The print head is actuated by a voice coil so that during the printing process the sample is positioned highly dynamically and precisely with minimal distance to the carrier. Thus, the smallest media can be positioned on carriers with extremely fast movements, independent of viscosity, with high precision and without damaging them. A linear measuring system in an almost Abbé arrangement enables repeatability of 1 µm and better if required.

Highly precise and viscosity-independent 3D printing

  • Ideal for cost-optimized contact 3D printing
  • Positioning with extremely high accuracies up to 0.6 µm
  • Highly sensitive, viscosity-independent additive application for a wide range of synthetic and biological materials
  • High throughput due to short strokes of 10 mm
  • Low maintenance and flexible 24/7 operation over many millions of cycles under clean room conditions
Optionally expandable:
  • Adaptation of strokes, length combination and control system
  • Customization for different printing materials: silicone, polymer, tissue, ceramics and more
  • Special configuration for biotechnology, medical technology, pharmaceuticals, semiconductor
  • Versions for clean room ISO 14644-1 class 6 (up to class 1 on request)
