R&D Inkjet Printer

n.jet lab R&D inkjet printer for printed electronics, 3D printing and material deposition
  • Smooth transfer from R&D scale to 24/7 industrial production systems
  • Versatile applications with print heads from several manufacturers
  • Fast and easy change between different heads & different inks
  • Up to four different head/ink combinations in use simultaneously
  • High precision mechanical design with self calibration including nozzle by nozzle calibration
  • Easy to use graphical user interface

The n.jet lab is a highly flexible R&D inkjet printer with a print area of 305mm x 305mm(larger print areas are available on request) and has been designed for printing of technical an functional inks.

It's main focuses are development and verification of new production processes and small volume series production.

There are various print heads and tank systems available that have been optimized for their respective application and ink and which can be heated optionally. Up to four of these print heads can be in use simultaneously. These easy-to-change print haeads, along with small volume ink reservoirs support the very quick and economic adaptation of the printer in order to meet the moving requirements in a laboratory environment. Larger tank systems for small volume series production are optionally available.

The printer comes with integrated camera systems and image processing in order to align printing to fiducial marks or substrate borders. The built in calibration (based on the image processing as well) along whith the high precision mechanics produce high-accuracy printouts for demanding applications.

Automated loading is avaiable on request.

We make your n.jet lab fit your special requirements. See it for yourself.
