By Laura Galloway

BMF expanding coverage in Scandinavia

BOSTON (May 19, 2020) - Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), the pioneer in microscale 3D printing systems today announced their partnership with TECCLUSTER A/S, a Scandinavian supplier of 3D technology from leading market manufacturers located in Kolding, Denmark. TECCLUSTER have added BMF’s microArchä S140 to their 3D printing center in Kolding, which includes more than 2,000 km² of advanced machinery, including 5-axis milling machines and 3D technologies. TECCLUSTER will distribute BMF’s line of micro-precision 3D printers to customers throughout Scandinavia who are looking for an ultra-high resolution, accuracy and precision micro 3D printing solution as well as provide local application engineering and technical support.

The microArch S140 is a micro-precision 3D printer capable of achieving resolution of 10µm and tolerances of +/- 25µm, thus providing mold-free, ultra-high-precision fast prototyping and end part capability. The microArch line of 3D printers uses a proprietary approach to 3D printing named PμSL (Projection Micro Stereolithography) that leverages light and enables the technology to produce incredibly high-resolution prints. Today, BMF has the only micro 3D printing platform that matches precision injection molding in terms of resolution, size, and tolerance.​

“I have been working with 3D Printers since 1990 and the printers from BMF are the most promising I have seen. BMF’s technology will open up many opportunities in hearing aids, medical devices, electronics and the microelectronic mechanical systems industry. Very small high-precision parts that cannot even be injection molded can now be manufactured by micro-precision 3D printing technology. We are very pleased to be working with our new partner BMF and their professional team “said Per Lynnerup, ​Founder & Managing Director of TECCLUSTER A/S.

“We are excited to embark on our partnership with TECCLUSTER, further expanding European support network by adding an exceptional level of service and support for our Scandinavian customers. With TECCLUSTER’s long serving reputation in additive manufacturing and with vast experience in supporting enterprises and academics throughout Scandinavia we believe this significant partnership will significantly drive the enablement of precision manufacturing, miniaturization, and cutting-edge research and production techniques, within medicine, medical devices, electronics, and beyond,” said John Kawola, CEO of BMF. If you are interested in learning more, please contact BMF or TECCLUSTER for more information.

​'THE BASIC CERTIFICATE' - SUPPLY CHAIN INNOVATION

The CEO of Teccluster, Per Lynnerup, presented his take on 'the basic certificate' during a seminar about Supply Chain Innovation September 25th, 2015.

In cooperation with Børsen and Business Kolding, the University of Southern Denmark used the seminar to focus on how companies can optimise work for increased performance.

About the seminar:

​The greatest source of competitiveness is found within the supply chain. Here, you create innovation, based on the concepts business processes, technology and network structure. A total of 114 business people were basically introduced to the meaning of Supply Chain Innovation.

CEO Per Lynnerup told about the importance of keeping development at a pace, ensuring that product master data is not eliminated completely:

- It is important that products are described in detail. It is further crucial that companies have clear guidelines on who is responsible for updating product master data. The product development department is responsible for delivering the child, so the people there know the child’s shoe size, making them responsible for making the show size part of the child’s master data.
