The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) in Abu Dhabi has purchased a Fujifilm Dimatix DMP283 inkjet printer, the institute’s first step towards printing its very own solar cells
The DMP-2831 printer has been equipped to allow the deposition of fluidic materials on an 8x11 inch or A4 substrate, utilising a disposable piezo inkjet cartridge.
This printer can create and define patterns over an area of about 200 x 300 mm and handle substrates up to 25 mm thick with an adjustable Z height.
The temperature of the vacuum platen, which secures the substrate in place, can be adjusted up to 60°C.
Additionally, a waveform editor and a drop-watch camera system allows manipulation of the electronic pulses to the piezo jetting device for optimisation of the drop characteristics as it is ejected from the nozzle.
Self-powered electronic newspapers and building-integrated photovoltaics are among the products that Masdar may be able to print using the DMP-2831 printer.
