3D Mechanical
Conventional production of prototypes takes many days and costs thousands of dollars to produce. The use of prototypes allows developers to economically produce mock-ups to iterate and verify their ideas for form and fit prior to manufacturing scale-up. Piezoelectric inkjet printheads are an ideal solution to jetting of the composite fluids used within digital 3D Mechanical applications.
Applications
  • 3D Assembly Systems
  • Sensing
Optical
Jetting of UV-curable optical polymers is a key technology for the cost-effective production of microlenses. These tiny lenses are used in devices from fiber optic collimators to medical systems. Our inkjet printheads' ability to precisely jet spheres in variable but consistent drop sizes provide opportunities for the cost reduction of existing optical components and innovative new designs.
Applications
  • Optical Lenses
  • Light Pipes
Photovoltaic
Photovoltaic (PV) is solar technology that converts sunlight directly into electricity.
FUJIFILM Dimatix inkjet printheads and systems are used efficiently and cost-effectively to produce electronic elements using functional fluids that are applied directly and without contact onto rigid and flexible surfaces. It does this without the waste associated with screen-based application methods. Conductive fluids and unique photovoltaic materials, both organic and inorganic, are suitable for digitally printing flexible and rigid substrates.
Applications
  • Rigid inorganic such as silicon-based PVs
  • Flexible organic or inorganic for high-efficiency novel PVs
  • Printing conductive lines
