3D Printed Electronics manufacturing systems
offered by Neotech AMT:
The PJ 15X is an economic Rapid Prototyping system combining piezo-actuated printing technology with 5-axis motion control enabling complex 3D printing. It is suited for a wide range of R&D, Prototyping and Product Development operations.
The core platform uses standardised high performance control system offering a clear path to high volume manufacturing.
The PJ15X supports a wide variety of functional materials. Conductive nano-particle inks, micron scale inks, adhesive/dielectrics and biological reagents that can be accurately deposited onto complex shaped non-planar substrates
The AJ 45X is a compact, high throughput, mass production system for 3D Printed Electronics. With 4 Aerosol Jet® print heads and 5 axes of simultaneous motion, rapid parallel processing of multiple parts is achieved. Designed specifically for 24/7 operation the 45X is robustly constructed for minimal maintenance operation. Linear motor and encoder technology guarantee maximum printing accuracies (+/- 5μm) even at high-dynamic feed rates. High speed (< 1ms) motion control and simultaneous calculation for axis positioning enables rapid and consistent print speeds enabling optimised print cycle times. “Look Ahead” path control with jerk compensation ensures harmonious movement and sinusoidal accelerations that guarantee printing accuracy.
Light Beam Sintering (LBS) is a non-contact, photonic sintering technique that is applied to printed electronic circuits on “low temperature” substrates such as Polycarbonate (PC). Each sintering head consists of a specially selected light source with integrated air-cooled reflector and lens system. The projected light beam (tuned to the absorption wavelength of the printed media) is focussed on the printed trace where local heating and sintering takes place. The heat distribution is precise enough to sinter the printed structure whilst leaving the peripheral area of the substrate unaffected.
The LBS 45X E is a low cost, high throughput system for rapidly processing 3D Printed Electronic structures. With up to 4 LBS heads and 5 axes of simultaneous motion, parallel processing of multiple components is achieved. LBS technology can also be integrated in the AJ15X RP systems.
