ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed electronics, announced today that the company, along with its partner Wong’s Kong King Ltd (WKK), will showcase its Aerosol Jet systems for 3D printed electronics at NEPCON China in Shanghai. The conference/expo will be held April 25-27 at the Shanghai World Expo and Convention center in China. Optomec will be located in the WKK booth # 1-F50 in Hall 1. At the expo, Optomec will display next generation 3D printed electronic devices used in consumer electronics, semiconductor packaging and Internet of Things applications. Also in the WKK booth, Optomec will showcase a video highlighting the use of Aerosol Jet technology in mass production at the LITE-ON Mobile Mechanical SBG (LITE-ON) factory in Guangzhou, China. For over one year, multiple Aerosol Jet production systems have been operating 24x7 at LITE-ON printing conformal electronics onto millions of consumer electronic devices. Since the printing process requires no plating or special resins, logistics are simplified and production costs are lowered. Examples of Aerosol Jet printed sensors and antennas will also be available for inspection. Additionally, on April 26, Dr. James Q. Feng, Principal Engineer at Optomec, will deliver a presentation titled “Aerosol Jet-The Enabling Technology for 3D Printed Electronics.” Dr. Feng will explain how Aerosol Jet technology is used by a wide variety of industries to directly print functional electronic circuitry and components onto low-temperature, non-planar substrates, without the need for masks, screens or plating. Optomec solutions for printed electronics are based on its industry proven Aerosol Jet technology for printing conformal electronic circuitry and components onto 3D structures. The Aerosol Jet process utilizes an innovative aerodynamic focusing technique to collimate a dense mist of material-laden micro droplets into a tightly controlled beam to print features as small as 10 microns or as large as several millimeters in a single pass. A wide assortment of materials can be printed with the Aerosol Jet system, including conductive nano-particle inks, polymers and epoxies, along with dielectrics, ceramics and bio-active materials.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics, today announced that its President and CEO, Dave Ramahi, will participate in a NextFlex forum titled “Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) Impact on Health and Safety of the Future” to be held March 1-2, 2017 at the PARC facility in Palo Alto, Calif. The forum will feature speakers from organizations including GE Healthcare, Boeing, Jabil, Airforce Research Lab and several others. The discussion and presentations will focus on how the cost and effectiveness of healthcare and the safety of aging infrastructure are significant challenges facing America. Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) holds the promise to improve healthcare comfort and costs through solutions such as telemedicine and remote monitoring. Additionally, FHE has the potential to improve the safety of transportation, transit infrastructure, and utility infrastructure in a cost-effective manner through data-based structural health assessment, maintenance and replacement. Ramahi will contribute to the forum with a presentation titled “Printing 3D Sensors and Antennas Directly onto Products.” Ramahi will discuss how Optomec’s Aerosol Jet system can directly print 3D sensors and antennas onto existing structures, or be used to more tightly package traditional discrete sensors and antenna in a 3D setting. The enables production of Smart Products that are an essential building block for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet. Optomec’s direct 3D printing approach compares with legacy discrete sensor & antenna production, which is generally 2D, and fails to optimize for cost, size, weight and performance when adapted to 3D products. Ramahi will also share how Optomec is developing sets of generic sensor and antenna reference libraries to help speed the adoption of Smart Product solutions. NextFlex is a public-private consortium of companies, academic institutions, nonprofits and governments with a mission to advance U.S. manufacturing of flexible hybrid electronics. NextFlex encourages investment in the manufacturing ecosystem for this exciting technology, in return for receiving intellectual property, new product ideas and partnering opportunities.

A method for fabricating three-dimensional structures. In-flight heating or UV illumination modifies the properties of aerosol droplets as they are jetted onto a target surface. The UV light at least partially cures photopolymer droplets, or alternatively causes droplets of solvent-based nanoparticle dispersions to rapidly dry in-flight, and the resulting increased viscosity of the aerosol droplets facilitates the formation of free standing three-dimensional structures. This 3D fabrication can be performed using a wide variety of photopolymer, nanoparticle dispersion, and composite materials. The resulting 3D shapes can be free standing, fabricated without supports, and can attain arbitrary shapes by manipulating the print nozzle relative to the target substrate.

A method and apparatus for the additive fabrication of single and multi-layer electronic circuits by using directed local deposition of conductive, insulating, and/or dielectric materials to build circuit layers incorporating conductive, insulating and/or dielectric features, including inter-layer vias and embedded electronic components. Different conductive, insulating, and/or dielectric materials can be deposited at different points in the circuit such that any section of the circuit may be tailored for specific electrical, thermal, or mechanical properties. This enables more geometric and spatial flexibility in electronic circuit implementation, which optimizes the use of space such that more compact circuits can be manufactured.
