Optomec Aerosol Jet 5X overview

The Optomec Aerosol Jet 5X is an industrial 3D printer made by Optomec, a manufacturer based in Albuquerque, USA.

Optomec Aerosol Jet 5X 3D printing technology

The Optomec Aerosol Jet 5X uses Aerosol Jet 3D printing technology to build parts with embedded electronic, structural and biological patterns onto almost any substrate. The Aerosol Jet 3D printing technology utilizes aerodynamic focusing to precisely deposit electronic and other materials in dimensions ranging from 10 micrometers (0.01 mm) up to centimeter scale.

Aerosol Jet 3D printing technology advantages
