Optomec to Showcase 3D Printed Electronics at Sensors Expo

Aerosol Jet Printing of Smart IoT Devices to be Highlighted

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D Printed Metals and 3D Printed Electronics announced today that the company will feature its production grade Aerosol Jet 3D Printers at the Sensors Expo at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California this week. Aerosol Jet 3D Printers will be showcased in booth # 1118.


Aerosol Jet technology is currently used for printing 3D shaped electronics in mass production for antenna and sensor applications. There is a growing demand for antennas and sensors directly integrated into products including smartphones, wearables, structural components, and IoT related products. Creating integrated 3D antennas and sensors using a direct write approach enables higher fidelity monitoring of structures, faster product design and prototyping, while also broadening the choice of substrate materials. The Optomec exhibit will compare examples of 3D printing to traditional fabrication methods for broadband, Bluetooth, NFC antennas, plus strain and creep sensors. Examples of via filling and wrap-around printing using five axis of motion manufacturing solutions will be displayed.

The market for sensors is expanding at a phenomenal rate, with increasing demands on design engineers to innovate and integrate. To help engineers find the solutions they need in a timely manner, Sensors Expo 2016 brings together the entire design lifecycle from sensing all the way to securing, and across a wide range of verticals. The 2016 expo will bring together the world's leading engineers and developers to share design ideas, present today's sensing challenges, and find tomorrow's sensor solutions.
