Aerosol Jet has the ability to print conductors and dielectric materials on 3D surfaces on many types of substrates. Electronics producers are now using the Aerosol Jet process to print RF interconnects, replace wire bonds in IC packaging, print antennas directly onto electronics enclosures and create multi layer, miniature circuits. These capabilities enable electronics designers to miniaturize products as well as change the form of the overall electronics package, allowing more organic and ergonomic designs. The Optomec Aerosol Jet 5X system supports 5 axis of coordination motion with a 200mm x 300mm x 200mm (x, y, z) print envelope and the ability to print features ranging from 10 microns to millimeters. In addition to the hardware and software of the Aerosol Jet System, Optomec provides two decades of materials and process research to match the performance and environmental requirements of the design to a production ready process.
