Towards Integrating Electronics in 3D Printed Parts
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
10:00 - 10:20
In this presentation we will show developments from two TNO joint innovation centers - AMSYSTEMS Center and Brightlands Materials Center - on using additive manufacturing to create integrated electronics 3D printed parts.
Combining 3D printing techniques with technologies from flexible electronics, creates a new manufacturing paradigm for small series free form products. This increases flexibility, enables customization and decreases costs for small series production. With Stereo Lithography the highest quality 3D products can be manufactured. We will show our steady advancement and developed equipment for this integration challenge.
A second development concentrates on using a multimaterial approach to integrate new performance such as sensing or electric functionality directly into printed parts by using advanced material systems. Additive manufacturing of such multimaterial systems gives designers the tools and freedom to design innovative electronic objects that cannot be produced through conventional means. In our presentation we will give some examples of integrated electronics and multimaterials systems and their potential.
The heart of Brightlands Materials Center is an evolving ecosystem where scientific excellence, innovative applications and societal challenges come together.
Brightlands Materials Center offers a meeting place at Brightlands Chemelot Campus and close collaboration with a global network of leading companies along the value chain and renowned universities and institutes.
The themes of research address major societal challenges such as sustainable energy, mobility, and health & well-being. Three shared research programs are currently running:
• Lightweight Automotive
• Sustainable Buildings
• Additive Manufacturing
