“In the framework of our collaboration and long term partnership with CTTC, we are pleased to emphasize our CeraPrinter F-Serie installation at the premises of the famous Center for Technology Transfers in Ceramics,” said Nicolas Bernardin, deputy managing director at CERADROP. “Having confirmed its technology transfer expertise in the field of advanced ceramics and associated manufacturing processes, forming a real link between laboratories and the industrial sector, nowadays, the CTTC is one of the most reliable centers for transforming the products from R&D to commercialization in the various fields.
“The machine has been particularly designed for Advanced Digital Process Development in multidisciplinary fields, and its modular-based scalable concept permits us to feature the system as a hybrid all-in-one tool with Inkjet and Aerosol Jet deposition technologies, multi-curing options and in-situ characterization facilities embedded simultaneously,” Bernardin noted. “Regarding its latest key technologies joined in one tool and single user-friendly interface for all integrated options, the F-Serie enables multi-team co-working, achieving successful results in advanced feasibility studies and providing our customers with the possibility to address numerous business opportunities.”
“The choice of CeraPrinter F-Serie was obvious for us from the first time we saw the machine at work during last printed electronics exhibition in Berlin,” said Dr. Grégory Etchegoyan, executive director at CTTC. “The printer was displayed in the Manufacturing Street running its functional demo. Its eye-catching design and performance couldn’t leave us indifferent to this kind of device.
“After careful analysis of its technical features and future business opportunities for state-of-the-art feasibility studies definitely we decided to proceed for its acquisition,” Dr. Etchegoyan added. “Taking the knowledge and results gained from fundamental research and transforming them into industrial products tailored to each company’s specific needs, we ordered particular configurations for our F-Serie with CERADROP’s Technical Team. In order to take up the challenge in complex feasibility studies required by our customers, we equipped the jetting slots with multi-different printheads for inkjet, Aerosol Jet and IR post-process devices, and all of these were started up and driven fast by the single interface for the user.
“In our opinion, this is the most optimal combination, moreover upgradable in the future, enabling us to address various applications in electronics, biomedical, energy and environment, telecommunication, aerospace, additive manufacturing and ceramic materials,” said Dr. Etchegoyan. “We are convinced, this kind of advanced equipment and high-level process support provided by supplier just enables us to achieve only best results.”
“We strongly believe that providing such a hybrid equipment for the research fields and markets will allow our customers to make a significant progress in the domain, address various applications and bring the efforts to new discoveries,” Bernardin concluded.
