Transforming Industrial Manufacturing: Harnessing the Potential of Ultra High Viscosity Jetting for Functional Printing

The potential to transform industrial manufacturing lies in jetting ultra high viscosity fluids, merging the scalability, flexibility, and digital printing capabilities of NovoJet inkjet technology with the superior properties of functional materials. The ability to jet ultra high viscosity fluids via drop-on-demand inkjet, surpassing previous standards, was first announced by Borrell et al. in 2021. Initially, only small printheads with limited commercial capabilities had been developed and tested, with a tentative specification for a commercial printhead anticipated. Over the past three years, substantial progress has been made in optimizing the underlying actuator technology, enabling jetting of fluids with viscosities up to 250 mPa·s for Newtonian fluids. NovoJet technology is poised to revolutionize applications in fuel cells, printed electronics, MEMS, semiconductors, and more.
