Metal 3D Printing from <1 µm to 1000 µm

CERES Print System

CERES is a stand-alone microscale 3D print system that prints complex and pure metal objects at the micrometer scale, and with submicrometer resolution. Possible object size is <1 µm to 1000 µm.  Additionally, CERES can write patterns with liquids and nanoparticles that can be made of different materials.

CERES combines nanometer-accurate positioning, air pressure-driven liquid dispensing, electrochemical deposition and optical force feedback. The state-of-the-art system is operated by our CAPA software, which has an intuitive user interface and seamlessly connects all parts of the system. 

    Key CERES features:

- Print at room temperature
- No post-processing necessary
- Print overhanging parts without support structures
- Possible object size: <1 µm to 1000 µm
- Resolution (min. feature size):  <1 µm
- Print pure metals: Cu, Au, Ni, Ag, Pt

Two high-resolution cameras with computer-assisted alignment enable pinpoint-accurate printing, for example printing directly onto integrated electrodes which are pre-defined on a chip surface. The cameras also support automated iontip loading, as well as visualization of the printed structures. 

The CERES system and proprietary software has a comprehensive online user manual which is regularly updated, enabling the user to take advantage of all new features and workflows.
