Rapid prototyping has become very popular in the manufacturing industries. However, until now, it has not been possible to prototype micron-scale patterns using the technique. Startup Smart Force Technologies, founded in 2015 by two former LTM-CNRS PhD candidates, is responding to this need and has already sold several units of its Smart Print optical photolithography machine.
Smart Print eliminates the need for physical masks, saving on both time and costs and giving designers the freedom to make multiple prototypes. The product targets research laboratories and industrial R&D departments in the watchmaking and microfluidics industries. Smart Force Technologies also sells SF-Research, a machine used to position nanoparticles.
