Print 3D Sensors and Antenna Directly onto Products

Session Description

We live in a 3D world, and to fully realize the IoT vision of ubiquitous, smart connected products, sensing and connectivity must conform to 3D reality. However, legacy Sensor and Antenna production is generally 2D, failing to optimize for cost, size, weight and performance when adapted to 3D products. We will describe how Optomec's Aerosol Jet system can directly print 3D Sensors and Antenna onto existing structures, an essential building block for IoT rollout. Examples include Strain, Creep, Current, Gas, Temp & RF Sensors; and Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi Antenna. As a digital Additive Manufacturing process, this solution enables parametric design libraries accessible in CAD/CAM, backed by qualified printing parameters. This direct digital approach results in lower upfront cost, as well as functional benefits. For example, a tightly integrated sensor provides more sensitive data, which is critical to maximizing LifeCycle savings in Industrial applications, like Condition Based Maintenance.
