ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive
manufacturing systems for 3D printed electronics, announced today that
the company will showcase its Aerosol Jet systems for 3D
production-grade printed electronics at the FLEX Mems and Sensors
Technical conference and expo, held this week at the Hyatt Regency in
Monterey, California. Optomec will be in booth # 3011. In addition to
the exhibition, Dr. Kurt Christenson, Optomec Senior Scientist, will
deliver a presentation titled “Fitting the Function into the Form” in
the TechTalks afternoon Session at 3 pm on Tuesday, February 19.
In his presentation, Dr. Christenson will discuss how Flexible Hybrid
Electronics (FHE) are driven by the need to fit an electrical function
into a convenient and often an aesthetic form. In FHE, electrical
components and interconnects need to be added to rigid 3D surfaces or
flexible substrates that are later bent when put in place. Aerosol Jet
technology offers a means of printing conductors and attaching discrete
ICs, passives, LEDs, sensors, etc. to 3D and flex substrates. Dr.
Christenson’s talk will discuss the techniques and materials necessary
to create 3D and flexible circuits using Aerosol Jet technology
including discussions of design rules, materials, current limitations
and plans to overcome those limitations. For more information on Aerosol
