This latest development will be the focus of Optomec’s presence at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Show in Santa Clara from Nov. 20-21, 2019, where it will be exhibiting. In addition, Bryan Germann, product manager for Aerosol Jet will be making a technical presentation titled: Materials and Process Development of Aerosol Jet Production Applications on Nov. 21, 2019.
“We’ve optimized the mist delivery mechanisms to enable the Aerosol Jet print engine to operate continuously for a full eight-hour shift. This advance, along with Aerosol Jet’s material deposition versatility, make the system ideal for high-volume 3D advanced semiconductor packaging, as well as manufacturing of 3D antenna, sensors, and circuitry. The solution is enabling for a wide range of smart mobile devices, automotive and medical applications as well as a host of other electronics and wearable products,” said Germann.
The Optomec Aerosol Jet print engine can now run up to eight hours continuously without operator intervention while maintaining minimal variation in mass output. This directly correlates to high stability for printed line width and line-height as well as the resulting electrical performance (i.e. resistance of conductive traces).
