Optomec, a leading global supplier of production-grade additive manufacturing equipment and software, announced that its Aerosol Jet print engine has been upgraded to operate with an uninterrupted 8-hour runtime. The solution enables full shift operation to better meet the needs of current and next-generation electronics manufacturing across a broad range of industries.
This latest development will be the focus of Optomec’s presence at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Show in Santa Clara from November 20-21, 2019 where it will be exhibiting (Booth C11).
“We’ve optimized the mist delivery mechanisms to enable the Aerosol Jet print engine to operate continuously for a full 8-hour shift. This advance, along with Aerosol Jet’s material deposition versatility make the system suitable for high-volume 3D semiconductor packaging, as well as manufacturing of 3D antenna, sensors, and circuitry,” said Bryan Germann, Product Manager, Aerosol Jet.
The Optomec Aerosol Jet print engine operates 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).
