Optomec partners with Ceradrop
Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics based in Albuquerque (NM), USA, has announced the signing of an agreement with Ceradrop to be its exclusive representative in France for Aerosol Jet systems used for printing electronics. Ceradrop, a subsidiary of the MGI Group, designs and markets material deposition inkjet printers for advanced printed electronics systems and is headquartered in Limoges, France.
Optomec’s Aerosol Jet printers provide high-resolution 3D printing capabilities required to manufacture smaller, lighter-weight, high-performance devices used in industries such as aerospace, defence and consumer electronics. Aerosol Jet technology, which is scalable for high-volume production applications, uses a patented process of aerodynamic focusing to precisely print electronic circuitry and functional components in dimensions ranging from as small as 10 microns or as large as several millimetres in a single pass.
“With the addition of Optomec’s Aerosol Jet systems, we add in our product portfolio new electronics capabilities which are complementary to inkjet technology like high viscous pastes jetting, high-resolution printing, materials deposition on 3D components, and, more importantly we create a close partnership with Optomec to enable new additive technologies,“ says Rémi Noguéra, executive general manager at Ceradrop.
