Overview of Technique
Aerosol Jet Technology
The Aerosol Jet technology delivers the unique ability to print fine-feature electronic, structural and biological patterns onto almost any substrate. The patented process, which is totally different from ink jet, utilizes aerodynamic focusing to precisely deposit electronic and other materials in dimensions ranging from 10 micrometers (microns) up to centimeter scale.
Optomec 5 axis Aerosol printer – for printing functional inks onto 3D structures
The Aerosol Jet 5X system is ideally suited for 3D Printed Electronics applications such as fully printed antennas, sensors, and Molded Interconnect Devices (MIDs). The system comes equipped with an Optomec Sprint print module ideally suited for high resolution printing of electronic circuits and devices for rapid prototyping, product development and printed material evaluation. An optional Optomec Marathon print module can be added for process development and low volume production runs. The Aerosol Jet 5x system comes with 5 axes of coordinated print motion.
