Samsung Electronics has commissioned Optomec’s additive manufacturing (AM) system—the Aerosol Jet 5X System—in its Printed Electronics Lab to enable next-generation electronics production.
Aerosol Jet can print conductors and dielectric materials on 3D surfaces on many types of substrates. Electronics manufacturers 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 multilayer, miniature circuits—essentially eliminating the restrictive shapes of PCBs. These capabilities will enable Samsung 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 five-axis of coordination motion with a 200x300x200mm (x, y, z) print envelope, and has the ability to print features ranging from 10 microns to millimetres. 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 proven production-ready process.
