Technologies for additive manufacturing, such as microstereolithography, are becoming ever more suitable for the production of high-resolution miniature parts. The designs can be complex and production can take place directly. These techniques are easily applicable for product development and can help speed up introduction to the market. TNO Science and Industry and Materials innovation institute M2i in the Netherlands carried out a knowledge transfer project on microstereolithography with pilot companies, the results of which will be presented during a Precision-in-Business day in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, on 18 November.
