AXT, a provider of high-tech scientific tools in Australia, has introduced its appointment because the official distributor for Exaddon, a Swiss-based producer of micro steel additive manufacturing know-how.
Exaddon programs are suited to printed advanced steel geometries within the vary 1 to 1000 µm (micrometres) with sub-micrometre decision.
Exaddon’s CERES micro-AM print system utilises localised electrodeposition to deposit metals akin to gold, silver, platinum, copper and nickel. The system can straight print buildings on conductive substrates together with electrical circuits. Exaddon states that the printed buildings from the machine require no post-processing, not like different methods used for microfabrication at comparable dimension scales.
The CERES know-how has been utilized in areas akin to microelectronics and micro supplies characterisation. The rising area of neural interfaces that use 3D printed needles or pillars to attach computer systems to the human nervous system has additionally used the CERES.
Exaddon states that it’s getting used as a substitute for multi-stage lithography microfabrication, and that it produces supplies with superior power and sturdiness with no need submit processes akin to etching.
“Additive manufacturing is a quickly rising area in Australia,” stated Richard Trett, AXT’s Managing Director. “We recognized Exaddon as a wonderful match for our viewers, with novel know-how that gives large scope for publishing.”
Edgar Hepp, CEO of Exaddon, stated: “As a Swiss firm, we attempt to supply excellent know-how mixed with nice buyer help based mostly on experience and expertise. For us it was an apparent option to appoint AXT as our distributor in Australia.”
Exaddon opened its doorways in August 2019 when Swiss nanotechnology firm Cytosurge introduced its 3D printing enterprise can be spun out and proceed operations beneath the Exaddon model identify.
Hepp continued: “They [AXT] have intimate information of their native market, and crucially, a wonderful fame for adopting cutting-edge know-how akin to our personal. We’re satisfied AXT will signify the distinctive know-how we offer at Swiss high quality customary.”
