Metal Micro 3D Printing
We manufacture your smallest metal components.
With LMM technology, you can iterate small metal prototypes faster and start low volume production without breaking the bank. We are Metshape's exclusive sales channel in the US.
Design without constraints
Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing produces high-precision metal components with excellent surface quality. The stereolithographic process combined with the absence of printing supports result in detailed, smooth surfaces with great design freedom.
The absence of internal stress in green parts allows printing extremely thin wall geometries.
Iterate prototypes faster
The combination of resolution, accuracy and surface quality often eliminates the need for post-processing and machining operations. You can iterate designs faster and lower your costs, including MIM mold rework costs.
No need for tooling
The LMM technology is not limited to prototypes and customized products. It can be used for low volume serial production at zero tooling cost.
We provide a wide range of finishing and inspection services for production.

Why choose the LMM technology?
Since LMM does not require any printing supports, the design guidelines are quite simple - meaning more freedom and faster iterations.
The stress-free green part production process allows printing extremely thin features - down to 0.004 in. (100µm)
Smooth surface finish
Green parts are produced by a photopolymerization process without application of heat, enabling high surface quality.
Speed to market
Production volumes of up to 10,000 parts per year can easily be achieved for small parts, enabling a smooth transition from prototyping to serial production.
