Francis Van Vehmendahl, Mitsubishi Engineering Plastics will speak at 3D Printing Electronics Conference 2019

In the last decade the LPKF-LDS technology matured into an accepted manufacturing method. This is especially the case in Asia were LDS materials are widely applied in wireless communication devices, such as mobile phones, notebooks and smart wearables. The most common used LDS material for these antenna applications is polycarbonate (PC) due to its well-balanced properties such as impact strength, processability, surface appearance and radio frequency (RF) performance.

Integrated Electronic Functionalities in 3D Printed Products – Presented by Fabien Bruning, TNO, at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, on January 22, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Combining the flexibility of 3D printing techniques with technologies from flexible electronics creates a new manufacturing paradigm for products with integrated electronic functionalities. Free form is no longer only applicable to the structural part, but also to the embedded electronics. In this presentation we will showcase our development based on SLA (Stereo Lithography). With SLA high quality 3D products can be manufactured, yet the integration with other manufacturing technologies is more challenging than some other AM technologies. This presentation will focus on the challenges and our achievements in integrating electronic structures during the 3D printing processes.

We need to understand at microscopic level what is happening during the printing process – Interview with 3D Printing Electronics Conference speaker Wijnand Germs

As Project Manager with the Dutch research institute TNO Wijnand Germs specializes in the integration of electronics in 3D printing, also called ‘structural electronics’. He and his colleagues are developing a 3D printer that will eventually be able to manufacture high-quality products with the electronics already in place. That’s a major step forward from the current 3D printers, which are mainly used for prototyping.

“Structural Electronics; the new manufacturing paradigm”, Presented by Rajesh Mandamparambil, TNO

By integrating electronics into loadbearing or protective structures, conventionally dumb plastic parts can be made smart. Currently different techniques like thermoforming and inmold are being explored. Utilizing the freedom of shape and flexibility of 3D printing techniques and combining the technologies from flexible electronics a new manufacturing paradigm is being developed. TNO is developing such manufacturing technologies towards mass customization of structural electronics. This will enable industries to accelerate innovations in this filed towards faster time to market. This presentation will talk about the current efforts from TNO towards this realization and the future vision.
