Specifically designed for
printing with Quantum X systems

The new IPX Photoresins have been specifically designed for Nanoscribe Quantum X systems. The industry-proven platform offers high-precision 3D printing and the innovative Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography technology for 2.5D microfabrication. To benefit from the printing speed, precision and performance of the Quantum X platform, the new IPX photoresin series of photopolymer printing materials has been developed for different structure qualities and processes. IPX-S and IPX-Q are designed for printing mesoscale structures with micrometer precision using Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography and Two-Photon Polymerization correspondingly. IPX-M is the photoresin for high-throughput macroscale printing for print volumes up to 30 cubic centimeters in one pass.

The microfabrication devices from Nanoscribe are designed as open systems, suitable for a broad selection of materials. The variety of materials extends further to third-party UV-curable photoresists, hydrogels and custom-made materials.

To satisfy the needs of material developers for testing new resins, a variety of materials and processes allow optical, mechanical, electrical, chemical and biological properties to be tuned as needed, e.g., in optics, photonics or biomedical engineering.

Post-print processes, e.g., casting, atomic layer deposition (ALD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD) or galvanization, allow modification of the 3D printed structures and permit the inclusion of further materials including ceramics, metals, glass or other plastics.

Precise and clean dispensing of printing materials

Dosing by hand onto a substrate

Our photoresins are available in lightproof and resealable cartridges. Take advantage of convenient dosing by hand or automatic dispensing onto substrates, wafers, chips and other microparts – precise and bubble-free. Further advantages:

  • Improved cleanliness
  • Better handling and dispensing
  • High-yield dispensing
