Optomec, a leading global supplier of production-grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed electronics, is showcasing its Aerosol Jet systems for 3D production-grade printed flexible electronics at the International Conference on Flexible and Printed Electronics – ICFPE 2017, held September 4-7 in Jeju Island, South Korea.

Pascal Pierra, Director of Asia-Pacific Sales for Optomec, will deliver a presentation titled “3D Printing of Flexible Circuits and Sensors” in the Technologies for the Internet of Things Track. 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.

Mr. Pierra will explain how sensors can be printed onto 3D and flexible substrates using a variety of conductive metal and resistive materials. Aerosol Jet is an ideal printing tool for precision deposition of polymeric and metal inks for sensors. The process is a non-contact, high-resolution printing technology that is compatible with a wide range of conductive, insulating and resistive materials. Mr. Pierra will present the functionality of printed strain gauges and thermocouple sensors in terms of robustness with flexing, thermal coefficients, resistance stability, gauge performance and thermocouple Seebeck coefficient.
