IDS provides viable direct write electronic printing solutions using a multi-discipline, science-

based approach that encompasses the fields of ink chemistry, microfluidics and aerodynamics, surface chemistry and physics, and material processing. IDS printing solutions employ droplet-based and filament-based processes, and enable deposition of traces on substrates ranging from glass to polymers.


*Nanojet (formerly MycroJet)

The droplet-based approach – Nanojet - creates fine traces by collimating and focusing a distribution of aerosol droplets using a series of aerodynamic lenses tuned to the output of an aerosol source.

The MicroJet Sub-System. Atomizer (1), Flow Cell (2), Process Vision (3), Fluid Dispense Nozzle (4), Optional Two-Axis Motion Control (5).



The filament-based process - Liquid Jet - deposits features on various substrates using a hydrodynamic focusing effect produced by jetting an annular liquid flow through a dispensing nozzle.
