Printed Electronics/Dispensing

Lewis AntennaDispensing involves printing organic and inorganic components on various substrates including paper, plastics and textiles. Dispensing encompasses applications including printed electronics, 3D printing and conformal coatings. Overall system accuracy and throughput are important requirements in these applications to dispense along complex contours. Aerotech's product line is specifically designed with these requirements in mind. Common configurations include gantries, split bridge assemblies and 5 - 6 axis degree of freedom (DOF) systems.

Printed electronics involves printing functional electronic circuits, such as OLED displays, electroluminescent lighting, stretchable electronics, wearable sensors, RFID tags and photovoltaic panels on a variety of media. Aerotech motion systems are built for reliability and flexibility, allowing you to bring printed electronics concepts to reality.

6 DOF Dispensing6-Axis DOF Dispensing System

  • Split axis, 6 degrees of freedom assembly allows dispensing on complex contours
  • Precision rotational axis of intersection alignments minimize three dimensional stack-up errors at the workpoint.
  • Multi-axis position synchronized output (PSO) couples your dispensing head directly to the encoder feedback for consistent deposition, regardless of the contour complexity or velocity variability, which allows for the highest possible throughput.
  • Direct-drive rotary axes exhibit high acceleration and zero backlash for ultra-smooth velocity regulation.
  • Dual-head configuration allows for two tool points which in turn doubles the process capabilities over the same work area.
  • Aerotech controllers provide coordinated motion between work-points, creating harmonized motion.
  • Systems offered in both “T” style and “H” style gantries (“T” style shown below).

Printing organic structures has opened up new frontiers in medical research. Printing 3D cell structures provides a better model for studying interactions between cells and growth factors or chemical agents as opposed to traditional 2D cell cultures grown in a dish.

Additionally, printing bone scaffolds helps cells heal in severe fractures. Here, pore size of the scaffold is critical to allow cells the ideal environment to grow. Typical pore sizes are hundreds of microns in diameter and require micron-level precision to construct, a core competency of Aerotech systems.

Compact 3-Axis Assemblies

  • Ultra-compact, modular direct-drive axes exhibit excellent in-position stability with no hysteresis or backlash, enabling submicron accuracy and repeatability for precise deposition.
  • Nanometer performance (1 nm step size) in a large-travel footprint.
  • Compact design, pneumatic Z.
  • Anti-creep crossed-roller bearings allow for smooth velocity regulation.

Logitechs sold at Apple stores do, actually

by higgmerr

The Logitech Web cam sold at Apple stores has that Mac-friendly seal of approval printed right on the box. I almost bought one there a few weeks ago, but the sales person said I could get the same thing cheaper at any other electronics store. I went to several, and not a single one had the Apple-compatible logo printed on the box. When I went back to the Apple store to buy it, they had sold out. I think Apple makes it next to impossible to upgrade old equipment. If there's a third party product that will allow you to do so, Apple makes certain you buy it from them directly or not at all.
(Thanks for the tip on the mac cam software, though.)

My ham radio room

by sparkles_with_frugalness

Built my first equipment with parts salvaged from discarded tube-type TVs. Amazing, people used to just throw non-functioning electronics into empty fields. Every bit of radio equipment in my radio room I got for free, because I helped design it, and the company rewarded me with a "sample" of the early runs.
The tower that holds up the antenna - I got paid to take it down by the previous owner.
The desk on which the gear sits - a solid-core exterior door on top of two two-drawer file cabinets, all gifts given to me by a guy whom I helped move.
Photos on the walls are pictures I took personally when on trips to various foreign countries, which I then printed out in 2 X 3 foot format using a color inkjet plotter at work
