Wearables represent one of the fastest growing segments of the consumer electronics and healthcare markets. Examples include smartwatches, continuous blood glucose monitors (CGMs), AR / VR headsets, smart clothing, electronic textiles, and more. which together are expected to generate well over $ 150 billion in annual final product sales by 2030.
A unique feature of wearables is that they conform to the human body, which most often requires that they be three-dimensional in shape and often flexible. In addition, they are ideally comfortable for the user, which means that they are not very intrusive; that is: as small and flexible as possible. Such specialized requirements are particularly well served by the benefits of Optomec’s patented Aerosol Jet 3D printed electronics manufacturing process.
“These recent orders are another example of Optomec’s ability to generate repeat sales with existing customers as they move up the production path,” said Dave Ramahi, CEO of Optomec. “In this example, we started with new developments in our applications lab to demonstrate stretch circuit printing, as well as our core 3D compliant electronics capabilities, which enable customer product design. ”
Optomec’s patented Aerosol Jet electronic 3D printers are an additive electronics solution capable of directly printing high resolution conductive circuits, with feature sizes as small as 10 microns. The process is further differentiated by its ability to print on non-planar substrates and fully three-dimensional end pieces. Production applications include direct printing of 3D antennas, 3D sensors, medical electronics, semiconductor packaging and 3 wrap-around interconnects for displays.
Optomec is a rapidly growing private supplier of additive manufacturing systems. Optomec’s patented aerosol spray systems for printed electronics and LENS and Huffman branded 3D printers for the production and repair of metal components are used by industry to reduce product cost and improve performance . Together, these unique printing solutions work with the widest range of functional materials, from electronic inks to structural metals and even biological material.
