Description: The DMP-2850 allows the deposition of fluidic materials on an 8×11 inch or A4 substrate, utilizing a disposable piezo inkjet cartridge. This printer can create and define patterns over an area of about 200 x 300 mm 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. The DMP-2850 offers a variety of patterns using a pattern editor program. Additionally, a waveform editor and a drop-watch camera system allows manipulation of the electronic pulses to the piezo jetting device for optimization of the drop characteristics as it is ejected from the nozzle. This system enables easy printing of structures and samples for process verification and prototype creation.

Specifications: Ideal applications for the materials printer include:

  • Material and fluid development and evaluation
  • Prototype and sample generation
  • Fluid and substrate interactions evaluation
  • Product development
  • Optimization and evaluation of digital patterns
  • Deposition of biological fluids including cell patterning, DNA arrays, proteomics

Fiducial camera provides substrate rotation alignment using reference marks, Allows positioning of the print origin to match substrate placement, Provides measurement of features and locations, Provides inspection and image capture of printed pattern or drops, Provides cartridge alignment when using multiple cartridges, Allows matching drop placement to previously patterned substrate

Cartridges: New generation Samba cartridges
