3D Printed Electronics Process Chains - Enabling Novel Applications And Mass Production
09:45 - 10:10
This presentation will review the state-of-the-art related to integrating electronics into 3D Printed substrates to create fully 3D Printed Electronics systems and devices.
A reconfigurable array of suitable printing, pre- and post processing techniques combine to create a CAD driven Rapid Manufacturing process. The resultant process chain is capable of printing electronic functional materials such as conductors, dielectrics and encapsulation materials onto 3D Printed parts. The 5-axis motion and software modules enable the printing of complex shaped 3D electronic circuits, antenna, heater patterns and sensors. Current developments on embedding and interconnecting SMD components to manufacture more sophisticated systems will be presented.
In addition information will be presented on current applications and process scalability through to high volume manufacture.
