Within booth numbers 402 and 404, in Hall B0, FUJIFILM Dimatix will showcase the Dimatix Materials Printer DMP-2850, a cost-effective, easy-to-use precision materials deposition system, for R&D and prototyping along with the Samba Mini 4300 Printbar System, an industrial inkjet print bar system for application development and manufacturing production.
The DMP-2850 allows the deposition of fluids utilizing a user filled disposable piezo inkjet cartridge. This printer can create and define patterns over an area of about 200 x 300 mm (A4) and handle substrates up to 25 mm thick with an adjustable Z height. The temperature of the vacuum platen, which secures the substrate in place, can be adjusted up to 60°C to assist post-processing. Additionally, a waveform editor and a drop-watch camera system allow manipulation of the electronic pulses to the piezo inkjet cartridge for optimizing jetting characteristics for various fluids.
Ideal applications for the Dimatix Materials Printer DMP-2850 include:
- Material and fluid development and evaluation;
- Prototype and sample generation;
- Fluid and substrate interactions evaluation;
- Optimization and evaluation of digital patterns;
- Deposition of biological fluids including cell patterning, DNA arrays, proteomics
Samba drop-on-demand inkjet printheads can print drops at over 100 kHz at 1200 dpi producing high-resolution single-pass imprints at high speed. Fujifilm’s patented RediJet recirculation system enables print bars to be quickly primed, resulting in faster print readiness time, minimal ink waste, and improved reliability. Each silicon MEMS constructed Samba printhead has 2,048 nozzles to deliver a native 1,200 dpi resolution with an ink drop as small as three picoliters. The easy-to-use tabletop system includes one print bar, a control cabinet, PC and software, and the option to purchase additional components to expand the system.
“FUJIFILM Dimatix is eager to share our innovative solutions with decision makers at LOPEC,” said Scott Leger, business development manager, FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc. “This trade fair is an excellent opportunity for our organization to showcase on an international platform how our technologies can transform existing operations while providing more efficiency as well.”
