Significant upgrades with enhanced performance
Santa Clara, CA. – FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc. announces the new Dimatix Material Printer DMP-2850, with innovative features and enhanced performance for technology development in printed electronics, displays, and beyond, which is an upgraded and enhanced version of the industry leading inkjet deposition research platform, the DMP-2831.
Since its launch over 10 years ago, the DMP-2831 has become the industry standard laboratory tool for the development of inkjet deposition fluids and processes, with approximately 1,000 units placed worldwide in academic and industrial facilities. FUJIFILM Dimatix is now introducing the DMP-2850 as a significant upgrade to better serve R&D customers with improved cameras, more intuitive application software, and provisions for automated data collection and analysis.
The DMP-2850 includes an embedded 64-bit PC preconfigured with Microsoft Windows 8.1 and updated Drop Manager software. Two high-speed cameras with finer resolution optics provide superior images for drop-watching and print inspection functions. To accompany the hardware changes, the DMP-2850 will build on user accessibility and flexibility with an enhanced software platform. Remote access API and open architecture enable remote monitoring of cameras and printer status. More options for complex printing will be available with feature recognition, auto registration functions, and support for multi-layer printing. Jetting evaluation and drop watching operations will also benefit from automated analysis.
A complete platform for precision printing of materials, jetting analysis, and fluid development, the DMP-2850 provides the user with powerful tools for R&D work. A drop watching system enables jetting performance to be analyzed in combination with extensive control over printhead operation. A fiducial camera facilitates print inspection and accurate print registration to existing features. Cartridges are available with two native drop sizes, one and 10 picoliters, allowing customers their choice of jettable fluids. Silicon MEMS cartridge technology ensures compatibility with a wide range of organic solvent or aqueous-based fluid chemistries.
FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc. CEO and President, Martin Schoeppler, is keen to stress the continuing importance of the DMP-2850 for materials deposition. “This latest update to the desktop Dimatix Materials Printer is just the most recent in a series of investments we are making in this field.”
The DMP-2850 will be available from September 2016, and with enhanced user applications in the first quarter of 2017.
