3D printed structural electronics at TNO – AMSYSTEMS Center – Presented by Wijnand Germs, TNO at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, which takes place on Jan 24, 2017 at High Tech Campus Eindhoven in The Netherlands.
In this presentation we will showcase our recent development on 3D Printed Structural electronics. At TNO – AMSYSTEMS Center our goal is to bring the 3D printing of structural electronics as a cost effective flexible manufacturing technology for customized small series free form products. The development of this technology is based on two different AM methodologies, namely SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) and SLA (Stereo Lithography) This presentation will focus on the integration challenges of electronic structures during the 3D printing processes addressed on both these platforms (SLA and SLS) to achieve free form 3D printed structural electronics.
About Wijnand Germs
Wijnand Germs works as a project manager at the Dutch research organization TNO, in the department “Equipment for Additive Manufacturing”. He has a PhD degree in Physics, and worked as a process engineer in the aluminum industry, before joining TNO as a research scientist, where he worked mostly on multimaterial 3D printing.
TNO is a non-profit RTO, established in 1932. TNO has over 20 years of experience in the field of 3d printing and experience in knowledge transfer to industries in a wide field. TNO developed platforms for high speed stereolithography and continuous selective laser sintering. These platforms are suited for development of multi-technology/hybrid manufacturing like structural electronics.
