AGENT-3D elF (Additive Manufacturing Technologies for Integration of Electronic Functionalities)
The aim of AGENT-eIF (Additive Manufacturing Technologies for Integration of Electronic Functionalities) is to realize the additive manufacturing of three-dimensional components with integrated electrical and converter functionalities of multi-material systems in one device or process. The results are compounds of previously unprocessed (or hard to process) materials in which sensory elements can be integrated depending on requirements. The dispenser printing method is one such robust additive manufacturing technology, which is flexible in use and supports the integration of electric functionalities. Based on this technology, a complete plant for the entire process chain can be developed. Preliminary laboratory prototypes can be created for three chosen applications: “printed electrical conduction paths”, “sensors and converter” and “thermos electrics”.
