ioTech Group Ltd (“ioTech”) is installing its first beta IO300SM Continuous Laser Assisted Deposition (C.L.A.D.) printer at ASM Pacific Technology (ASMPT), a leading global supplier of hardware and software solutions for the manufacture of semiconductors and electronics.
Headquartered in the UK, with an R&D footprint in Israel, ioTech has been developing its unique and disruptive multi-material additive manufacturing technology since early 2016. Continuous Laser Assisted Deposition (C.L.A.D.) is the world’s first technology of its kind, that can process almost any industry certified material at high resolution and high speed, enabling full industrial scale digital production. For the first time, manufacturers can use their standard industrial materials, control the deposition of each single drop and reach unmatched production yields.
The speed and capacity of the technology deliver complete commercial solutions across multiple industries and hold great potential for digital mass-manufacturing applications such as semiconductor packaging and advanced printed circuit board production and assembly.
ioTech’s IO300SM printer is the first additive manufacturing solution incorporating the C.L.A.D. technology. The combination of its unique nozzle-free, non-contact laser jet printing and deposition capability, enables ultra-fast, highly accurate high-resolution printing of up to five different materials at the same time, including polymers, metals, solder pastes, ceramics and bio-based materials.
An early investor in ioTech, ASMPT chose to also be a beta site for ioTech’s IO300SM printer to drive fast and responsive production.
“We are delighted that ASMPT, a leading expert in semiconductor and electronics, identifies the opportunities presented by C.L.A.D.’s unprecedented ability to deposit any flowable industrial material,” states Dr Michael Zenou, ioTech’s co-founder and CTO. “ASMPT will be able to enhance its innovation possibilities and increase production efficiencies while embracing a more agile manufacturing approach to deliver fully functional products, fast and in an eco-friendly manner.”
ioTech’s IO300SM printer will be commercially launched as a world première at Productronica 2021, the international leading trade fair for electronics development and production, Messe Munich, Hall B2, Stand 217, November 16th to 19th.
