Optomec CEO Presents 3D Printed Sensors Solution at InterPACK Conference

Presentation Highlights Convergence of Additive Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Applications

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics, today announced that its President and CEO, Dave Ramahi, will give a presentation titled "Additive Manufacturing for Direct Integration of 3D Sensors for IoT Applications" in the Structural and Physical Health Monitoring track at the InterPACK Conference in San Francisco, Calif., this week. Optomec additive manufacturing solutions are used in production today to print conformal strain gauges directly onto turbine engine components that collect mechanical deformation data for cloud-based analysis, establishing the convergence of 3D printing and IoT applications. InterPACK 2017 is the premier international forum for exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge in research, development, manufacturing, and applications of electronic packaging, MEMS and NEMS.

Mr. Ramahi's presentation will take place at 10:15 a.m. on Aug. 30, in the Structural and Physical Health Monitoring track. Mr. Ramahi will discuss how Optomec's Aerosol Jet system can directly print sensors and antennas onto existing 3D structures, or be used to more tightly package traditional discrete sensors and antenna in a 3D setting. This enables production of Smart Products that are an essential building block for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet applications. Optomec's Direct Write 3D printing technology improves upon legacy discrete sensor & antenna production methods, which are generally 2D, and fail to optimize for cost, size, weight and performance when adapted to 3D products. Mr. Ramahi will also share how Optomec is developing sets of parametric sensor and antenna reference libraries that are optimized for 3D printing to help speed the adoption of Smart Product solutions.

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

Space, or the lack of it, can be a challenge when placing barcodes or Data Matrix symbols on components. However, readable barcodes are critical to component traceability, time/date stamping, work in progress (WIP) tracking, and recall management. MicroHAWK UHD smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including Data Matrix two-dimensional (2D) symbols and direct part marks (DPM). Users can rely on the MicroHAWK UHD to read symbols with an x-dimension almost invisible to the naked eye!
