Meyer Burger launches full range JETx functional inkjet platform
Meyer Burger (Netherlands) announces a major extension of its JETx family of functional inkjet production tools. The family now includes standard configurations for printed products as small as several square inches up to several square meters, covering all segments of the materials printing industry. The modular JETx hardware and software architecture allows Meyer Burger to quickly configure dedicated inkjet systems for printed and flexible electronics, PCB, OLEDs, sensors, semiconductors, MEMS, chemical machining, 3D printing, photovoltaics, life science, and optical applications.
Meyer Burger recognizes adoption of functional inkjet in a wide variety of industrial applications. This is driven by the cost saving and flexibility benefits of the technology in combination with advancements in ink development, print head capabilities and equipment performance. “Our customers are eager to apply inkjet printing and, at the same time, conscious about the engineering cost and risk associated with the introduction of a new technology in their production environment”, explains Johan Verheijen, business unit manager Inkjet Printing. He continues: “We have put tremendous effort into the development of a fully modular hardware and software platform enabling us to configure an application specific inkjet printer based on proven functional modules. The fact that we can configure a tool instead of designing it from scratch, significantly reduces the engineering effort. The use of proven modules guarantees reliability, high yield, fast commissioning and overall reduction of the project risk and timelines.”
The JETx family architecture consists of a number of base platforms for very small up to very large substrates (S, M, L, XL) and a set of configurable print engines for solvent based, hotmelt and UV curable inks. The print engine includes print heads, ink supply, print head maintenance, controls software and user interface. A printing system is typically completed by e.g. a wafer handling robot for semiconductor applications, or glass handling system and inert enclosure often found in OLED and display applications.
