3D Printed Electronics applications realised by Neotech AMT:

Device developed and manufactured by Ever Young BioDimension Corporation

Rehabilitation Device

After suffering a stroke patients are often accompanied by unilateral motor dysfunction resulting in weak finger strength, grip, and poor circulation.

The rehabilitation ball has printed circuits and embedded electronic components on a curved, flexible substrate. It is held in the palm of the hand for close and open exercises and effectively increases finger strength and stroke recovery.

The device provides real-time feedback the patient’s grip strength and monitors the training process for patients.

3D Printed Antenna – Liteon Mobile Oy

3D Printed Antenna for Mobile Devices

Printing cell phone antenna improves design flexibility, reduces device product thickness, and offers environmental compared to traditional processes. As a digitally driven process no there is no need for any hard tooling, special plastic resins, or plating processes. The lead time for New Product Development, initial sample delivery or product design changes can also be significantly reduced.

3D MID Demonstrator Circuit. Ag on PA6 with added SMDs.

Circuits – 3D MID

Direct printing of complex 3D Moulded Interconnect Devices with fine line and pitch on almost any surface material. Direct write of the circuit gives simpler process chain and reduced Work in Progress.

3D MID Heater Circuit on PC. IR thermal image from electrical load test. Peak temperature of 107°C.

Heater Patterns

3D printed circuits can be used to create heater patterns on materials such as PC for automotive applications. The use of PC in glazing applications can give weight savings of up to 50% compared to using glass. Neotech’s 5 axis printing methodology is scalable from small to large components in excess of 2m x 2m.

3D MID Sensor Circuit. Filling level sensor constructed from Ag on PA6 with added SMDs.

Sensor Structures

Printing allows for the use of many different ink types and functionalities. Using novel combination of printed materials and SMDs, sensor structures can be integrated into mechanical structures.
