Leading global supplier of additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics, Optomec, today announced it has signed an exclusive partnership deal with Ceradrop to be its representative in France for Aerosol Jet technology.
Ceradrop, a subsidiary of the MGI Group, designs and markets Materials Deposition Inkjet Printers for advanced printed electronics systems from material requirements to printed components.
Optomec Aerosol Jet printers provide high-resolution 3D printing capabilities required to manufacture smaller, lighter-weight, high-performance devices used in industries such as aerospace, defence and consumer electronics.
Aerosol Jet technology, which is scalable for high volume production applications, uses a patented process of aerodynamic focusing to precisely print electronic circuitry and functional components in dimensions ranging from as small as 10 microns or as large as several millimetres in a single pass.

“Ceradrop has both leading-edge technology and global expertise in printed electronics and smart 3D printing, which make it an ideal partner for Optomec,” said Mike Kardos, Director of International Sales at Optomec. “We are looking forward to working with Ceradrop to expand our European marketing network for Aerosol Jet.”
Back in November, Optomec announced record numbers for sales of high-end LENS 3D printers and Aerosol Jet systems across the U.S., Europe and Asia.
“The market for printed electronics and smart 3D printing is expected to explode over the next five years, according to market research analysts, and we are well positioned to be part of that growth,” said Rémi Noguéra, Executive General Manager at Ceradrop. “With the addition of Optomec’s Aerosol Jet systems, we add in our product portfolio new printed electronics capabilities which are complementary to inkjet technology like high viscous pastes jetting, high-resolution printing, materials deposition on 3D components, and, more importantly we create a close partnership with Optomec to enable new additive technologies.”
