Limitations and Considerations

  • Micro Milling may result in a surface finish that requires additional post processing for optimal smoothness, potentially affecting fluid flow and sample interactions.

  • Over time, the cutting tools used in Micro
    Milling may experience wear and require replacement, leading to potential variations in chip replication quality.

  • Achieving ultra-high resolutions for replicating extremely fine features may be challenging with Micro Milling, potentially limiting its suitability for certain microfluidic designs.

  • Depending on the 3D Printing technology used, post-processing steps such as cleaning, curing, or surface treatment may be necessary, adding complexity to the replication process.

  • Initial equipment and tooling costs for Micro Milling can be significant, especially for high-precision work, which may not be suitable for projects with budget constraints.

  • Ensuring consistent quality across a large batch of milled microfluidic chips may require...
