Optomec announced today
that the company will introduce its new Aerosol Jet Display Lab system at FlexTech
in Phoenix, Arizona, February 2-4. The Display Lab is an ideal platform for
developing next-generation display products.
The system is equipped with Optomec's patented Aerosol Jet technology enabling
high resolution deposition of a wide variety of materials including conductive
nano-particle inks, insulators, dielectrics, polymers, adhesives and other advanced
materials used to fabricate display products. With an expanded work envelope,
the Aerosol Jet Display Lab system enables printing on a wide variety of flexible
and rigid substrates, up to GEN 2 size.
The Display Lab system is available from Optomec now. A number of customers
in Asia, including a leading industrial electronics research institute and a
leading touch screen company, have already purchased and taken delivery of their
Aerosol Jet Display Lab systems. The system is being used today by these companies
to develop applications such as bridge/jumper circuits for bus lines on ITO/Glass,
edge circuits for handheld displays, and fully printed Thin Film Transistors.

The benefits of the patented Aerosol Jet Direct Write technology are its multi-material,
fine line (<10 um) printing capability which eliminates many process steps/costs
associated with current photolithographic and vacuum based display manufacturing
processes. Also, the Aerosol Jet Print Engine can be integrated into automation
platforms to meet high volume display production requirements. Multi-nozzle
dispensing heads can be configured to meet specific end-user throughput needs.
The additive process employed by Aerosol Jet technology reduces environmental
impact by minimizing waste and chemicals that are prevalent in traditional electronics'
Dr. Mike Renn, Director of Optomec's Advanced Application Lab, will be
presenting in the “New Approaches for Flexible Electronics” track
at the conference and will be available to discuss Aerosol Jet capabilities.
Dr. Renn's presentation, titled “Aerosol Jet Printing of Carbon
Nanotubes,” will provide an overview of Aerosol Jet deposition capabilities
and will discuss the benefits of this innovative technology for display, as
well as for other printed electronics applications.
