Japan-based KEIO University is the first user of Nanoscribe 3D printer GT2
The KEIO University, one of Japan’s private universities will be the first to use Nanoscribe´s latest 3D printer model Photonic Professional GT2. Unveiled at Formnext 2018, this line of 3D Printers has the ability to scan the laser focus within a photoresin in a layer-by-layer fashion with layer distances down to the nanometer scale, creating 3D objects with optical surface quality in a single printing step.
Researchers of the Japanese university will be able to explore new opportunities in areas such as mechanical, electrical, chemical and life sciences.
“Both, the School of Medicine and the Faculty of Science and Technology, will have access to this powerful microfabrication tool”, Mr. Tomoaki Mitani, manager at Central Service Facilities for Research, explained after the successful installation. “The range of possible applications extends from the printing of microchannels for electrochemical sensors to the development of novel optical elements and tissue engineering research in 3D cultures.”
Nanoscribe´s CEO Martin Hermatschweiler shares his excitement about this first installation and can’t wait to see the achievements that will result from the device: “Nowadays, more than 180 Nanoscribe systems around the globe are used for various applications in science and industry; and our user community is steadily growing due to a large number of multi-user facilities”, Hermatschweiler underlines.
You can now post free of charge job opportunities in the AM Industry on 3D ADEPT Media.
