Nanoscribe microfabrication systems established as the new standard at top universities

Dec. 2, 2015
Five out of the top 10 universities are already customers of 3D printer manufacturer Nanoscribe.

In the recently published QS World University Rankings 2015/2016, five out of the top 10 universities are already customers of 3D printer manufacturer Nanoscribe (Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany). This includes Harvard University (Cambridge, MA), the California Institute of Technology (Caltech; Pasadena, CA), the University of Oxford (England), and Imperial College London (England), all of which are among the elite users of the company's high-precision systems for microfabrication. ETH Zurich, which has already purchased a second system this year, succeeded in reaching the top 10 for the first time.

“With the development of our Photonic Professional GT system, which are today the fastest systems on the market, we could establish a new standard at universities and research institutes," says Nanoscribe CEO Martin Hermatschweiler. "In addition to the tremendous speed, they work with a precision a hundred times higher than, for example, stereolithography.”

With these devices, it is possible for the first time to open up new and broader applications, such as in medical technology, micro-optics and photonics, information and communication technologies, micro mechanics, and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).

All in all, there are already more than 100 systems in use at renowned research institutes in over 25 countries. Furthermore, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT; Germany), from which the company was founded in 2007, is a customer amongst the top 100 of the best and most innovative universities worldwide.
