The key to the success of the Nanofabrica technology is that it brings the benefits of AM to micro manufacturers for the first time, including hitherto impossible part complexity (enhancing design and functionality), no tooling costs, minimal set up costs, and the ability to mass customize and personalize products. As a versatile technology the Tera 250 is now stimulating innovation across the micro manufacturing sector. While the Tera 250 can cater for high volume applications, the introduction of a 3D printing solution for micro manufacturers also means that companies are able to reduce the reliance on economies of scale, as the technology makes full production runs measured in thousands as inexpensive as producing one.
