The XTPL print head is our own in-house design and it enables the application of ink with nanoparticles and formation of the conductive line. It is an electronically controlled system with compact and modular structure, fully parametrized by the user from the level of an intuitive interface. Since the elements of the print head are modular and easy to replace, the changeover/servicing time has been reduced to an absolute minimum. XTPL’s solution also eliminates the need to clean the print head components thanks to the use of one-time inexpensive tips which are replaced after each run. In addition, we have designed the print head in such a way as to prevent any direct contact between the pump and the applied medium. In consequence, we can neutralize errors related to the leftover medium from previous samples and thus increase repeatability, credibility and reliability of the results. This method also allows to analyse various inks/fluids without the necessity of subjecting the device to a time-consuming and expensive cleaning process.
Our solution is compact and it has only few fitting points, which makes its integration into an automatic multi-head system fast and easy. The installation in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal position has no impact on the properties of the process.
