IDM Lab (previously known also as Lumi Industries) has just officially launched a new device: the PicoFAB.
PicoFAB was developed with a very specific purpose: after a market research lasting several months, it emerged that research laboratories, developers of new materials, researchers in the field of bioprinting, are in difficulty when they must test new photopolymers.
The problem is that commercially available resin 3D printers have an average footprint area of 10 x 7cm or more, and therefore to print, at least 100ml of resin is required. This becomes a problem when you want to test a new resin of which you have very small quantities available, because it is very expensive (bioprinting, certified resins) or because you are testing new materials and therefore you prefer to initially produce small quantities of resin.
To overcome this problem, we have developed PicoFAB, a 3d printer that allows you to print with just 10ml of resin, in a printing area of 24x24mm at 100mcron of XY resolution and 25/50 / 100micron on the Z axis.
Another interesting feature is the resin tank in stainless steel, easily removable and sterilizable, and a design that allows a good cooling of the internal LCD even if the machine is inserted in a laminar flow hood.
The PicoFAB is the perfect tool for universities, research labs in the development of new materials, bioprinting, and for all those who wish to test small quantities of expensive resins (high performance resin, certified for dental use, castable resins) before to use them for printing on standard size 3D Printers.
Several Universities and laboratories have already expressed interest in the PicoFAB for testing innovative materials that are being developed, including more environment friendly materials, for bioprinting, and to evaluate biocompatible 3D materials.You can have more information about PicoFAB by attending either the online or live event Arab Health, which has brought many innovations in healthcare/laboratory devices in the last 45 years.

IDM lab (founded by the members of Lumi Industries) is a company that develops and manufactures devices and solutions for companies in the medical and dental fields, mainly relating to custom additive manufacturing and the design of laboratory instrument prototypes. We can offer feasibility study and rapid realization of device prototypes that companies can test to evaluate a new product that they intend to develop. We provide design studio, mechanical and electronic design, firmware and software development, manufacturing both with traditional methods (sheet metal processing and Cnc) and additive manufacturing (SLS, SLA, DLP, FFF) in any material and size. We also provide additive manufacturing service for companies with specific consultancy, on request, right from the creation of 3D models. We also sell materials for additive manufacturing, including resins certified for medical use. Among our customers, multinationals such as Ivoclar Vivadent, and many Universities around the world.
