Rocky Hill, CT USA – ChemCubed not only continues to develop conductive materials and liquids, but also a corresponding method of printing electrical conduits, while at the same time printing a 3D structure. Combining these materials with the next generation in UV LED flatbed inkjet printers led to the birth of ElectroUV3D printers back in 2015.
The latest printer from the two companies not only builds upon the initial release, it incorporates many of the same features that have made the new Direct Jet 1800z UV LED printer models so popular in 2017. With a print width of 304mm (12”), the new models can output up to 20% more product than the original version (print mode and setting dependent). Combine that with an all new touch screen interface with on-demand printer diagnostics, and operators have everything they need to leverage this technology more easily and efficiently than in years past.
“We are very excited about continuously advancing this technology and application,” says Dan Slep, Chief Technology Officer for ChemCubed. “The whole system is optimized for the deposition of ChemCubed jettable liquids, while providing better resolution than other processes, to allow flexibility in material design and the ability to build different layers and coatings into one continuous material.”
“As our partnership with the team at ChemCubed continues to grow and enter year three, our collective group continues to learn from each other,” says Blair Allen, President of Direct Color Systems. “All of that learning, testing, and collaboration continues to push the application forward and is clearly visible when one views the output of these machines.”
What is ElectroUV3D?
The ElectroUV3D printer is the only one of its kind. The system is capable of depositing highly conductive ink for low sintering temperatures. And, because the printer can cure resins with different material properties, it can create objects both flexible and stiff, incorporating conductive properties, simultaneously. It is also possible to print directly onto substrates such as FR4 boards in making circuit boards, or on Kapton® tapes for flexible electronics. Digitally print items such as:

ChemCubed (Chem3) develops custom chemistries for piezo-head additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing. ChemCubed's technology is centered in rheology suitable materials and nano-composite materials for jetting by means of common, commercial, piezo-effect inkjet "additive process" 3D printing equipment. These jettable nano-composite materials are application specific, embodying customer-specified physical, electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties.
