3D Printed Electronics – Sustainable Manufacture of Mechatronic Systems

Martin Hedges

This presentation will introduce recent developments related to the production of 3D mechatronic systems via Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes and well as present the potential for improved sustainability via automated recycling and component reuse.

The 3D PE process consists of a reconfigurable array of structural and electronics printing, pre- and post processing techniques in combination with SMD technologies. The digitally driven process chain can be easily reconfigured to cope with rapid changes in product type whilst retaining the ability to be scaled through to volume manufacture. Whilst the use of these processes is more sustainable than traditional electronics manufacturing it also enables automated recycling of the mechatronic product at the end of life.

Neotech AMT and the TAMS-group at the University of Hamburg, announce the Development of a camera-based monitoring system for Additively Manufactured objects with integrated electronics (Project: KAM EI). The project, funded by Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM) from the German Federal Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), will run until September 2022. Automated Quality Assurance (QA) will be developed with which the manufacturing processes can be monitored online in the 5-axis manufacturing cell.
