n.jet am – a flexible multi-material inkjet and laser platform

This presentation will show the design of the Notion System´s n.jet am platform. It is a high performance inkjet printer which can process up to 4 functional materials. In additition it houses a laser and an NIR-source for drying and in-situ sintering of conductive structures. The platform is specially designed for highly flexible interoperability making use of AI.

A presentation by David Volk, Director New Applications at Notion Systems GmbH.

Interview

Question 1: What drives you?
Inkjet is used to replace established subtractive process sequences and reduces waste, energy consumption, and makes electronics production more ecological, and more economical at the same time.

Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
Multi-material jetting for state-of-art electronics, all in one machine together with laser technology. That´s highly innovative and shows the future of additive manufacturing.

Question 3: What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Digital printing of functional materials for many applications and industries, such as PCB, 3D, semiconductors and displays.

Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
They will allow new designs, reduce waste, reduce processing steps and ultimately make the production of electronic parts faster and cheaper.

Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
The lack of common standards for accepting additively manufactured electronic components.
