"Keeping updated about the new technological achievements in Printed Electronics for the emerging applications, which make our life more interactive, digital, secure and smart; we have designed a high-end CeraPrinter F-Serie platform allowing the players to achieve the targeted results in advanced R&D. Today, we highly appreciate to announce our equipment installation by one of the European top research institutes - ACREO Swedish ICT. The institute works in the fields of electronics, optics and communication technologies providing cutting edge resources and knowledge. The acquired F-Serie system represents a true integration All-in-one State-of-the-art machine with full options configuration from the key-players of PE domain. Starting from a drop analysis up to complete functional devices manufacturing the CeraPrinter offers numerous advantages and capabilities to accomplish advanced hybrid process development and bring multiple research efforts to success." stated Nicolas BERNARDIN, Deputy Managing Director at CERADROP.
"As a research institute we encounter a broad variety of challenges, and the CeraPrinter F-Serie is a really versatile machine with many print and curing options. Typically we build/deposit materials at a µm/nm-scale so precision printing and alternative methods to create thin layers and cure is increasingly important - sometimes screenprinting is not adequate and we can then go for Aerosol Jet® or Inkjet easily. We also like the small footprint of the machine regarding the high level of technology embedded (Inkjet, Aerosol Jet®, AdphosNIR®, UV LED, NovaCentrix PulseForge®). Moreover, the level of precision enabling us to trial new material compositions. The CeraPrinter F-Serie is therefore an important part in creating one of the leading pilot lines in the world for printed electronics, as we create printed sensors, diodes, transistors and entire hybrid systems for use in wearables, IoT, medtech and other sectors." noted Bjorn Norberg, Sales Manager Printed Electronics at ACREO Swedish ICT AB.
"We strongly appreciate the recognition and investment by ACREO into CeraPrinter F-Serie Model. This fact reinforces our world presence and makes us successfully involved in tight partnership enabling new technological achievements and results." concluded Nicolas Bernardin.
