DELAWARE, OH ― Jan 2018 ― Engineered Material Systems, Inc. (EMS), a global supplier of conductive inks and interconnect materials for printed electronics, will exhibit its jet dispensable SMT adhesives at the 2018 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 27 – March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in Ca.

EMS and Essemtec have collaboratively developed a fast and accurate means to attach smaller die package to printed electronics. Essemtec’s PUMA jet dispenser can accurately place adhesive dots on fine-line silver ink lands. The jetting process eliminates the need for Z-axis accuracy required for needle dispense, enabling rapid SMT attach on non-planar or 3D surfaces using high-speed laser mapping in real-time per sheet.

EMS’ SMT adhesives have been optimized for accurate jet dispense and compatibility with EMS PTF inks to deliver robust circuits that withstand ASTM F3147-15 multiple mandrel flex cycles.

Essemtec’s PUMA features the ability to jet dispense multiple materials (e.g. silver epoxy, staking compound, encapsulant) and pick-and-place numerous components on one platform.

The EMS and Essemtec solution is a game changer for printed PTF electronics.
