Introduction

The product line of the microdrop Technologies GmbH covers instruments for the precision microdispensing of technical fluids in the picoliter to microliter range (1 to 200 mPas viscosity at room temperature, heatable heads up to 160 °C, xyz-stage with 1 micrometer precision, glove box set-up).

The fluids can vary from water-born inks to oils, lubricants, adhesives, coatings, dispersions, (bio)polymer and nanoparticle solutions.

Application areas range from sensor technology, minimal lubrication (watch fabrication, precision bearings), polymer electronics (OFED, solar cells, RFID tags, displays, conductive connections) up to micromechanics and optics.

In addition, biological systems can be processed (DNA, proteins, cells). Heights of dots, films and columns from 50 nm up to mm (3D-printing) can be reached. The microdispenser systems fabricated by microdrop Technologies are constructed in a modular way and can be tailor-made for the needs of the customer.

Application Examples:

  1. lubrication of small bearings
  2. printing of nano inks (Ag, Au, ITO, TiO2, etc.) and conductive adhesives
  3. production of sensor and diagnostic chips
  4. dispensing of waxes and hot melts
  5. polymer research
  6. assembly of loudspeakers / micro bonding
  7. aircraft production / minimal lubrication
  8. mounting of microlenses and optical fibres
  9. Assembly of glass fiber connectors
  10. meteorology research / particle size calibration
  11. printing of DNA, proteins, enzymes and cells
