The 3Dn Series Factory in a Tool has 3D printing, printed electronics, CNC drilling, milling and polishing, pick and place, laser heating and ablation, photonic sintering, UV curing, Z scanning and vision. It’s the only tool on the market with the complete capability to manufacture complete and working circuits with the push of a button. The 3Dn System’s exceptional performance is in the form of precision—precision in volume control during each process and precision in the motion control itself. The motion control has submicron resolution and repeatability, which enables quality parts in the final outcome. The advantage of PCS is more functions per volume. This means state-of-the-art electronic packaging will change and the electronics will become part of the structure, and that structure will no longer just be a structure, but instead an electrically functional one. All phones, computers, displays, and now even cars, planes, and trains are structures with electrical function. These are assembled using state-of-the-art electronic packaging and mechanical assembly. PCS is the future of electrical and mechanical assembly. One of the exciting technological impacts that is starting to emerge, is the Internet of Things (IOT).
