Presentation Summary

Pin-point AM provides the possibility to print complex metallic 3D µ-structures on existing objects and surfaces. FluidFM is the technology allowing varied materials to be combined within one object. It can be used to print micron-wide solid metal structures directly into or onto individual objects as well as the repairing tiny structures or electrically linking minute objects. This pinpoint accurate, easy-to-use electro-chemical deposition based AM technique using the FluidFM µ3Dprinter. It allows various pure metals such as copper, silver, gold or platinum to be printed in a single one-step process.

Company Profile (Cytosurge)

Cytosurge logo
Cytosurge is a young and high-tech ETH Zurich spin-off. The invention of the FluidFM technology led to the formation of Cytosurge in Zurich. A group of experts developed and commercialized the FluidFM technology. The FluidFM technology enables an immense range of applications in life sciences, biology, and physics. Cytosurge strives to provide the tools for new possibilities and applications at the forefront of nanotechnology, particularly in medicine, life sciences and material science.
The FluidFM µ3Dprinter is a brand new development that builds on the FluidFM core technology, but ventures into a completely different application space, namely that of printing metals on a micrometer scale.
