Dimatix Releases DMP-5000 Materials Printer

November 29, 2010

Fujifilm Dimatix, which develops industrial inkjet printheads, components and systems, introduced its new Dimatix Materials Printer (DMP), described as a large-format, non-contact, fluid deposition system capable of jetting functional fluids.

The DMP-5000 has a printable area of 500 x 500 mm and, according to Fujifilm, maintains a positional accuracy and repeatability of ± 5 µm and ± 1 µm, respectively. The DMP-5000 uses a temperature controlled vacuum platen to register, maintain and thermally manage substrates during printing. These substrates include plastic, glass, ceramics, and silicon, as well as flexible substrates ranging from membranes, gels, and thin films to paper products.

The printer includes an integrated drop visualization system that captures droplet formation images, as droplet ejection parameters are adjusted to produce a tuned printhead and fluid combination. The printhead can be calibrated on a per-nozzle basis to compensate for channel-to-channel variability. A second camera system allows substrate measurements and alignment, observations of fluid drying behavior, with droplet measurement and placement calculations.

“With the addition of the new DMP-5000, combined with our broad range of interchangeable printheads, wide range of drop volumes and application specific capabilities, Dimatix now provides the most comprehensive solutions in the industry for process, fluids and product development for materials deposition applications,” said Martin Schoeppler, CEO and President of Fujifilm Dimatix, Inc.

The DMP-5000 joins the DMP-2800 and DMP-3000 printers introduced in 2005 and 2009, respectively.
