Born from NASA project to enable in Space Microfabrication
In 2020 NASA became our customer after we presented our ATLANT 3DTM Technology and an idea to develop the first ever atomic layer 3D printing compact machine for micro and zero gravity selective area direct ALD process. This led to ATLANT 3D team delivering a highly customized machine for their project – testing the deposition of materials in micro and zero gravity.
Due to very strict requirements for the volume and weight, our team had to find unique solutions. We developed the first ever ATLANT 3DTM Nanofabricator 0G – a very compact microreactor selective area direct ALD machine able to work at micro and zero gravity and deposit ALD quality films and patterns in harsh conditions.
This gave us an idea for applications here on Earth: a compact selective area direct ALD 3D printer that can efficiently serve the needs of innovators, material scientists, engineers, as the reduced form factor would allow placing such a machine in controlled inert environments such as gloveboxes.
Test the Nanofabricator LiteTM now in your lab!
With a Nanofabricator LiteTM in your glovebox, easily deposit and pattern atmosphere-sensitive materials for your R&D. Learn more about the configurations and performance of Nanofabricator LiteTM.
We designed the machine with possibility to integrate it with your existing tools and infrastructure.
