Additive manufacturing leader Optomec has signed a distribution agreement with Semitronics Sales Ltd. to expand sales of Aerosol Jet systems in the UK and Ireland.
The New-Mexico based company’s new distribution partner is a leading supplier of research and production systems to the UK’s electronics industry for printed electronics, photovoltaics, microelectronics and MEMS applications.
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, consumer electronics and the Internet of Things (IoT).
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 to as large as several millimetres in a single pass.
“We are very happy to partner with Semitronics to expand sales of Aerosol Jet systems in the United Kingdom and Ireland,” Michael Kardos, Optomec Vice President of Worldwide Sales, commented. “The Semitronics team has an excellent track record of delivering complete manufacturing solutions to the region’s electronics industry, including printing systems, consumables, and post-processing equipment. They’re already off to a great start with sales of two Aerosol Jet systems to a leading Defence and R&D organization during 2015.”
Jeremy Davis, Managing Director of Semitronics, added: “We are delighted to add Optomec Aerosol Jet printers to our portfolio of solutions. Aerosol Jet printers provide new and exciting capabilities for our customers which will enable them to cost-effectively manufacture smaller and lighter-weight electronic devices."
