Optomec Extends Production Runtimes for 3D Printed Electronics Solutions

Aerosol Jet’s 8-hour Runtime Provides Higher Throughput and Lower Cost Per Part

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 14, 2019 — Optomec, a leading, privately-held global supplier of production-grade additive manufacturing equipment and software, today 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). 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 November 21, 2019.

“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 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 Bryan Germann, Product Manager, Aerosol Jet.

The Optomec Aerosol Jet print engine can now run up to 8 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).

Optomec's Aerosol Jet technology is offered as a complete production solution enabling 3D printed electronics applications, but the print engine can also be sold separately as a scalable solution to be integrated into customers’ own automation solutions. Digital products, such as Process Recipes, are also available to speed up integration into production.
