MICROFABRICATION

Breakthrough tool for rapid prototyping Lab-on-Chip system
and microstructure

The Rapid prototyping tool ZentriForm ensures unsurpassed high precision microstructures - rapid, simple and reliable.

The removal of air bubbles in particular makes the manual production of such structures with silicone a complex process that is susceptible to errors. With the ZentriForm system air bubbles are reliably removed through centrifugation. The procedure also saves valuable time since curing and degassing are carried out at the same time. The pressure of the silicone against the insert throughout the entire curing process furthermore insures a high dimensional accuracy. High reproducibility and a uniform thickness of the parts are the visible result.

Facts & Numbers

The ZentriForm system consists:

  • a centrifuge (ZentriForm 4 or ZentriForm 6)
  • a rotor
  • two insets for the rotor

 

Model size

ZentriForm 4"

  • Centrifuge with heating
  • Dimensions (w x d x h): 538 x 647 x 345 mm
  • Weight: approx. 65 Kg

ZentriForm 6"

  • Centrifuge with heating
  • Dimensions (w x d x h): 770 x 715 x 456 mm
  • Weight: approx. 160 Kg

 

Fields of Application

Application

  • Microfluidic structures
  • Stamp for hot embossing
  • Dies for blistertechnology
  • Dosing valves
  • Optical components
  • Microoptical structures
  • Prototypes and small series
  • Sealings

 

Benefits

User-Friendliness

  • Rapid production of the cast
  • Degassing and cross-linking in a single step
  • Simple to use

 

Safety

  • High dimensional accuracy
  • Bubble-free
  • Reproducible and homogenous thickness of
    the manufactured parts

    Option

    • The application of the ZentriForm insert is not
      limited to silicon wafers. For small batch series
      or 3D structures customized steel inserts can be used.
