Lab on a Chip for Gram staining
Conception et réalisation d'une nouvelle méthode de coloration de Gram en collaboration avec la société Swissmeca
In the interdisciplinary project 3D-NVU industrial inkjet printing is used in the context of printing in Life Science (bioprinting).
Design and manufacturing of a new generation of bioresorbable stents by 3D printing.
Ebeam in Digital Printing
Ebeam technology is used in digital printing to polymerize inks and varnishes. Compared to standard UV light curing, this principle has the key advantage of being more environmentally friendly because it eliminates the need for initiators, the most toxic elements present in inks.
Direct to shape inkjet printing with robots
To enable printing onto large & heavy objects it is necessary to combine `robot-moved printhead & static object'. While this approach opens many new application areas the accelerated motion of the printhead results in key tech challenges to achieve high printing speed, precision, and reliability.
Non-thermal micro plasmas at atmospheric pressure have gained significant importance in a wide area of technological applications over the past 20 years. For better surface adhesion and to achieve high quality of the final printed and coated multi-material shapes and devices, a high-resolution multi-nozzle plasma jet array is needed, which can digitally apply a micro plasma surface treatment. The main objective of the project is the development of a plasma array in which each single plasma cell can be ignited individually at atmospheric pressure following an arbitrary request of the final user.
Printing for Electronics
Transfer of HV capacitor serial production into a more robust, efficient and automatized process.
Feasibility study of a new dielectric droplet-based assembly process of passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
In this project, we investigate a new assembly process that consists in producing passive RFID tags only with printing steps.
