Optomec AJ 5X Aerosol Jet
The Optomec AJ 5X Aerosol Jet utilizes an aerodynamically focused ultrasonically or pneumatically atomized stream of ink in printing process for materials with 1-~20 cP and 1-~1000 viscosities, respectively. A broad range of materials and viscosities (conductive, resistive, and dielectric) can be printed over and onto complex surfaces at high resolution (~10 µm). This system supports motion in 5 axes, and eases printing with an alignment camera, 300x300 mm vacuum platen with heating up to 1000 C, large stand-off distance (>3 mm), and conformal deposition. An 830 nm CW IR laser of 80 um spot size with 1 W power for in situ sintering and an UV lamp for in situ curing are stationed with the printer.
