jetlab®II Precision Printing Platform

alt Based on MicroFab’s highly successful jetlab® microdispensing and printing platform, the jetlab® II Table Top Printing Platform has most of the same capabilities, but in a much smaller footprint. The jetlab® II is designed for the laboratory development of jetting processes and materials, allowing MicroFab’s customers and partners to investigate and optimize their specific applications. MicroFab’s jetlab® family of printing platforms are currently in use in 23 countries worldwide.

Standard Features

Software controlled X-Y positioning; 200x200 mm2 substrate size & print area; Z axis control of printhead height; Print-on-the-Fly (both axes simultaneously) or Point-to-Point printing; raster & vector printing modes; arbitrary printing resolution and direction; complex print job definition through scripting; control of multiple process functions (e.g. valves, light sources, etc.); software based rotation correction; CCD camera for drop observation; CCD camera with coaxial illumination for substrate observation; vibration isolated mounting surface; manual pneumatics controls; JetDrive™ III Drive Electronics unit with bipolar and arbitrary waveform modes, and single and burst modes.
