Minimal Manufacturing using Nanotechnology and 3D Printing
The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest
Society (CITRIS) creates information technology solutions for many of
our most pressing social, environmental and healthcare problems.
This extensive video presentation examines "Minimal Manufacturing"
using inkjet technology and special materials like nano metal pastes to
direct form three-dimensional structures anywhere on a substrate. The
process is simple and the entire setup can be carried out on a desktop,
in an ambient environment, and at room temperature. By combining this
method with advanced material and ink processing, electronic devices
may eventually be manufactured not by a large factory but by
small-scale equipment that can sit on a desktop.
