Aerosol Jet Printing of Smart IoT Devices to be Highlighted
Albuquerque, New Mexico – 18 April 2016 – Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D Printed Metals and 3D Printed Electronics announced today that the company will feature its production grade Aerosol Jet 3D Printers at the Canadian Printed Electronics Symposium (CPES) at Sheridan College in Oakville, Canada. Mr. Mike O’Reilly, Director of Aerosol Jet Product Management, will give a presentation titled “Fully Printed Conformal Antenna and Sensors on 3D Plastic, Ceramic, and Metallic Substrates” at 9:40 am on Tuesday, April 19, directly following the Keynote address. In addition to the presentation, Optomec will showcase Aerosol Jet technology at the Exhibition portion of the Symposium.
Mr. O’Reilly’s presentation will discuss the growing demand for antennas and sensors directly integrated into products including smartphones, wearables, structural components, and IoT related products. Creating integrated 3D antennas and sensors using a direct write approach enables higher fidelity monitoring of structures, faster product design and prototyping, while also broadening the choice of substrate materials. Aerosol Jet technology is used to print a wide variety of materials, including conductive and ceramic inks suitable for antenna and sensor applications. Mr. O’Reilly will also provide case studies comparing 3D printed to traditional fabrication methods for broadband, Bluetooth, NFC antennas, plus strain and creep sensors.. Examples of via filling and wrap-around printing using five axis of motion manufacturing solutions will be highlighted.
CPES is the single largest event of its kind in Canada devoted to the emerging fields of printable, organic and flexible electronics (PE). There is no better place to learn about the convergence of research and development, industry expertise, commercial effort and government support that gives Canada a tremendous opportunity in this explosive global market. CPES attendees will network and develop partnerships for collaboration and business development with influential leaders from across the global industry. For more information about CPES, click here.
