CERADROP, a MGI Group company, announces CeraPrinter X-Serie, All-in-One Inkjet Process Development system, installation at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). "CERADROP is proud to highlight its close collaboration with LIST and its choice of our state-of-the-art CeraPrinter system. Being a leader in advanced technologies and innovative products development they chose a CeraPrinter for their activities in the field of Printed Smart Materials. CeraPrinter X-Serie is all-in-one high precision materials deposition inkjet printer coming from materials science enables to take up all challenges in process development required by the PE domain. Thanks to its key technological advantages and smart engineering CeraPrinter permits to achieve great progress in this field" stated Nicolas BERNARDIN, Deputy Managing Director at CERADROP.
"After careful examination of different options for this kind of equipment on the world market, we decided to buy a CeraPrinter X-Serie from CERADROP. We are developing smart materials as ceramic thin films on various substrates and we believe that the CeraPrinter system is the most powerful tool for our activities. The printer is versatile, provides us with reproducible processes and is very efficient thanks to its integrated annealing module. It is well adapted for materials screening but also rapid prototyping. Moreover, the very efficient process support provided by CERADROP enables us to make the most of the Ceraprinter" said Emmanuel Defay, head of group in the Materials Research and Technology Department (MRT) at LIST.
"We are proud to supply such a prestigious institution like LIST with our advanced equipment. Targeting our customers' progress we are going to supply strong partnership and settle tight collaboration in order to develop new processes based on Inkjet Materials deposition technology." concluded Nicolas BERNARDIN.
