Belgium's Leading Collective Research Center for High Technology Will Use the System for Projects with Member Companies Throughout Europe

Optomec announced today that Sirris, the leading high technology collective research center in Belgium, has purchased an Aerosol Jet deposition system. The system, which has been installed at Sirris' location in the Liege Science Park, will be used primarily for the development of printed RFID antennae, micro capacitors, micro systems, packaging, memory and other emerging printed electronics applications. The Liege Science Park is within close proximity to a large number of high tech companies, including Microsys, the leader of the European government FEDER project that provided funding for the Aerosol Jet system.

Sirris' mission is to increase the international competitive position of its member companies through technological innovation. The organization specializes in engineering advisory, rapid prototyping, processing technologies and nanomaterials development services, in addition to conducting applied research and development activities in close cooperation with industry. Sirris has more than 2,400 member companies in its collective, ranging from small businesses to large industrial groups, with representation from the aerospace, automotive, electronics and materials industries. Sirris carries out more than 4,000 industrial engagements per year in more than 1,800 different companies, of whom 80% are small to medium enterprises. The organization has more than 120 technology experts spread over six locations. Several Belgium-based companies are already using the Sirris facilities to test and develop their new printed electronics applications. For more information on Sirris, please visit their website at www.sirris.be/AJP.

The Aerosol Jet system is ideally suited to be part of the Sirris facility for a number or reasons, including: its fine line (<10 micron), maskless deposition capability, the ability to successfully deposit a wide range of conductive and nonconductive materials and the ability to print on 3-D substrates. Laurent Seronveaux, Sirris Project Engineer, states, “Sirris is convinced that the Aerosol Jet system will impact the greatest number of our customer companies and enable us to help our clients solve their most difficult printed electronics challenges. Because the mission of Sirris is ‘driving industry by technology' and due to the wide range of applications that Sirris manages, we have chosen the most user-friendly, flexible solution.” To download the latest whitepaper on Aerosol Jet technology for printed electronics applications, click here.
