Presentations will Highlight Recent Developments in Aerosol Jet Technology for High Throughput Manufacturing

Albuquerque, New Mexico, 8 April 2010: Optomec announced today that Dave Ramahi, Optomec’s President/CEO will give a presentation titled “Aerosol Jet: Printed Electronics – Pathway to Production” at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics conference in Dresden, Germany on April 14th. In addition, Mr. Ramahi, will present an executive summary of Optomec’s business and financial outlook during the Investment Summit, and the company will participate in the Exhibition (Booth #49). The conference will be held April 13-14th at the Maritim Congress Center in Dresden, Germany.

Mr. Ramahi will explain how Optomec’s Aerosol Jet system is a breakthrough printing technology used in the development and production of next generation devices such as high efficiency solar cells, light weight fuel cells, touchscreen displays and 3D multi-chip packaging for SmartPhones. Aerosol Jet printing enables finer feature sizes than traditional screen printing and ink-jetting processes. The patented solution utilizes an innovative aerodynamic focusing technology that produces electronic and physical structures with feature sizes down to 10 microns. The Aerosol Jet system supports a wide variety of materials, including conductive nanoparticle inks and screen-printing pastes, polymers, insulators, adhesives, etchants, and even biological matter that can be accurately deposited by the Aerosol Jet system onto planar and non-planar substrates.
