Life Sciences and Alternative Energy – The Future Is Now
One of the “non-traditional” ink jet markets (a market where ink jet has historically not been prevalent) where we have provided project development expertise is Life Sciences. These applications require precise materials deposition. This is an exciting, burgeoning area, with new requirements for precise dispensing and placement of a wide variety of substances. With the expense involved in these materials, high quality processes are required to ensure the integrity of the work and research. We have the experience and know-how to deliver these tools. These applications include DNA, proteomics, antibiotics, food science, pathogen detection, and medical devices.
Growth in the demand for alternative energy is creating demand for systems that are able to efficiently and cost-effectively produce electronic elements using functional fluids that are applied directly and without contact onto rigid and flexible surfaces. The advantages of non-contact printing have been realized in a wide range of markets and applications. Electronics, solar, and other applications where traditional contact printing (or some other method of product deposition) has been used are beginning to benefit from the ever-evolving capabilities of ink jetting. ImTech is at the forefront of these developments, and can help you by delivering the products you need to stay at the forefront of your market.
Ink and Fluid Development and Analysis
Fluid development is a critical component to the successful implementation of any deposition or MEMS project. Our chemistry capabilities are world-class. Coupled with our vast knowledge of jetting hardware, we can deliver the ideal combination of fluid and jetting device for your application. Along with fluid development, we also offer expertise to ensure your substrate is optimized for your application. We also develop coatings for various substrates to improve the receptiveness of the substrate for the particular fluid or ink.
