From its inception 13 years ago, the INT thinks that Vietnam needs to acquire knowledge and know-how in microfabrication. Among those technologies, inkjet printing is a recognized contender with many research activities underway. The interest of CeraPrinter X-Serie is that the building blocks for such multilayer flex are modular-based and it provides the flexibility to print the circuit exactly as desired while providing a tight control on the different layer thicknesses.
CeraPrinter X-Serie is a perfect tool for materials testing and already showed the possibility to print RFID antennas at INT. The equivalent objects can be processed when the required higher resolution and placement accuracy of pL volume size droplets resolution on various substrates.
