Presentation Summary

We will be presenting techniques in printing structures with embedded circuitry and multi-layer circuitry. Also, a new solution will be presented for the digital printing techniques of conductive inks that have produced high resistance circuits due to the limitations of printed trace thickness (z-directional height). Traditionally, circuit capacity could only be achieved by an increase in trace width. A two-dimensional gauge (or flat wire) concept. With the ongoing trend of miniaturization, the need for micro-level printing of conductive traces is essential, and printing wider traces does not achieve this need. ChemCubed introduces the capability to digitally print conductive traces with increased z-directional heights thereby increasing conductivity through a patent pending process and materials offered through the ElectroJet brand "Multi-Layer / Multi-Material digital printing solutions for Electronics".

Company Profile (ChemCubed)

ChemCubed logo
ChemCubed (Chem3) develops custom chemistries, for piezo-head Additive Manufacturing (AM); nano-composite materials for jetting by means of common, commercial piezo-effect inkjet "additive process" 3-D printing equipment. These jettable nano-composite materials are application specific, embodying customer-specified physical, electrical, thermal and mechanical properties.
Chemcubed has developed a corresponding multi-material printing technology: printing electrical conduits and at the same time printing a 3D structure. The ElectroUV3D printers, allow users to effortlessly print highly conductive liquids, support and insulating materials; creating objects with flexible and stiff, as well as conductive properties all at one time and also prints on FR4 boards or on Kapton ® for flexible electronics.
