Optomec Showcases New Aerosol Jet HD Production System for Electronics Packaging at European Conference

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 display and demonstrate its newly
released Aerosol Jet HD production system for electronics packaging at
the LOPEC conference this week. The Aerosol Jet HD System is a compact,
configurable production platform that can dispense a wide range of
electronics materials with features as small as 20 microns. The system
can also produce larger features, from 100’s of microns to millimeters,
and print wide-area conformal coatings from 100 nanometers to 10’s of
microns in thickness. Highlighting its exhibition will be live
demonstrations of the Aerosol Jet HD system. The conference will be held
March 14-15 at the Messe Munchen in Germany. Aerosol Jet Systems will be
showcased in Hall B0, stand # 511.

The Aerosol Jet HD System is based on Optomec’s patented Aerosol Jet
technology, used to directly print functional electronic circuitry and
components onto a wide variety of substrates, both planar and
non-planar, without the need for masks, screens or subtractive
post-processing. Based on the next-generation of Optomec’s
production-proven Aerosol Jet print engine, the HD System provides
high-resolution printed electronics for today’s most demanding advanced
packaging applications such as 3D interconnects, conformal RF/EMI
shielding, and precision micro-dispense of insulators and adhesives.

The in-line, modular design of the Aerosol Jet HD System enables it to
seamlessly fit into almost any existing electronics manufacturing
environment filling production gaps and providing new functional
printing capabilities. The solution provides a turn-key approach to
advanced electronics packaging with the Aerosol Jet Print Engine and
tool path generation software integrated into a standard dispense
automation platform.

“The HD System builds upon our portfolio of 24X7 in-production Aerosol
Jet 3D printed electronic solutions for Smartphone antenna and printed
sensor applications. With our 20 micron (and up) scalable production
processes, the HD system is well positioned to meet today’s and
tomorrow’s most demanding advanced electronic packaging market needs,”
said Mike O’Reilly, Aerosol Jet Product Director.

In addition to the exhibition, Alex Ramm, Aerosol Jet Applications
Engineer for Optomec will give a poster presentation titled “Printed
Heater Wires for Automotive Lighting Applications” in the Lighting in
Mobility Applications Session on Wednesday, March 14,
2018 from 18:00-20:00. Posters will also be available for viewing
throughout the event.
