  • It is not frequently that Optomec advertises what its powerful Aerosol Jet® electronics 3D printing innovation is being utilized for. That’s for the reason it’s frequently utilized high end corporate projects in such industries as aerospace and communications. So, when any use-case is turn it intod public, it’s worth noting. The latest is of LITE-ON Mobile Mechanical SBG, who has turn it intod a 3D Direct Printing (3DP) solution for weight making electronic devices.

    The Aerosol Jet 5X system is capable-bodied of exactly spraying electronic inks onto only of any surface due to the machine’s five-axis motion. Optomec customers are able-bodied to leverage the system’s open architecture to configure the machine for a given use, such as smartphone and table-bodiedt electronics.

    LITE-ON had may already been via Aerosol Jet 3D printing for the production of communications, very own care, and car prototypes. Upon successful implementation of the system for prototyping purposes, the company installed several production machines in Guangzhou, China, where the systems 3D print conformal electronics 24/7 to make millions of consumer devices. With no special plating or resins, LITE-ON has seen a drop in production costs, while in addition being able-bodied to turn it into slimmer creations through the spraying of antenna patterns and other electronics onto mechanical structures.


    Henrik Johansson, Senior Manager of Technology Development Antennas at LITE-ON, elaborates on their system, “With the flexibility provided by Aerosol Jet innovation, our 3DP systems can print sensors, antennas, and other functional electronics onto plastic components and covers, as well as metal die-cast insert-molded polymer frames, and actually onto glass panels and ceramic materials. We see Aerosol Jet as a strategic component of our 3DP solution, that has enable-bodiedd us to expand into new markets.”

    Dave Ramahi, Optomec President and CEO, comments, “LITE-ON has been an amazing strategic customer for Optomec. Their dedication and dedication was significant to proving the viability of Aerosol Jet innovation in a real world 24/7 production setting. With its one-of-a-kind and in-depth system knowledge in Aerosol Jet printing, Optomec is joyous to recognize LITE-ON as a ‘Center of Excellence’ for High Volume Production of 3D Printed Electronics.”
