The University of Waterloo will add a Ceradrop L-Series inkjet system to its nano-electronics laboratory for research into the fields of manufacturing thin film transistors, the formulation of electronic inks, and the printing of electronic components over large areas.
"We chose the Ceradrop printer for the critical advantages brought on by their great flexibility in their ability to customize and evolve according to our needs,” stated William S. Wong, Director of the University’s Giga-to-Nano-Electronics Center. “Our configuration is unique and we will achieve, with a single machine, something that other research institutions in the world have to do using multiple systems. We look forward to receiving this cutting edge printer that will allow us to engage both our research studies as well as pre-industrial development.”

The University of Waterloo purchase was one of three orders – collectively worth just over $1 million – for the Ceradrop series printing systems, which is a division controlled by MGI Digital Graphic Technology of France, as that company plans further expansion into areas of printed electronics and 3D printing.

The Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland has acquired a Ceradrop X-Series inkjet printer for its Physics Laboratory and Analytical Electrochemistry (LEPA). This equipment will be dedicated to research in the field of micro-fabrication of electrochemical systems (sensors, batteries, fuel cells) by use of inkjet printing.

The Imperial College London in the United Kingdom has also acquired a Ceradrop X-Series Inkjet printer for its electrochemistry laboratory. This equipment will be used in research programs in the field of the manufacturing of intelligent 3D components for storage and energy conversion.
