Advanced manufacturing venture highlights region's economic prospects
Date:11/19/2012

Printed electronics and related advanced manufacturing technologies have the potential to be a $45 billion global industry, according to business analysts.

Rochester Institute of Technology researchers will be able to play a key role in advancing this industry as a result of the development of a university-industry partnership with regional and national high-tech firms. This includes the acquisition of new state-of-the-art equipment that further enhances the university's assets in advanced manufacturing.

The university hosted a demonstration of this advanced manufacturing equipment for printed electronic devices and a discussion of the new university-industry partnership today in the Earl W. Brinkman Lab in RIT's Kate Gleason College of Engineering.

Advanced manufacturing is being used to develop applications such as smart sensors, biomedical devices, touch screens and fuel cells in a wide variety of industriesmedical, aeronautics, military and automotive, for example. The Brinkman Lab will be a resource to advanced manufacturing firms in the region and throughout New York state for developing some of these technologies.

"This initiative and the resources of the Brinkman Lab will be a remarkable resource to advanced manufacturing firms in the region and throughout New York state," says RIT President Bill Destler. "The technology will propel a wide range of applications across many industry sectors. The eco-system now in place in this region positions the Rochester community to be a leader in the efforts."

The lab's most recent equipment acquisition is a NovaCentrix Pulseforge, an advanced curing system for printed electronics. RIT is one of the only universities nationally to have such a highly specialized instrument.

The Pulseforge uses high-intensity light at very short pulses to heat materials such as nano-inks that, once fused, render conductive properties. The process is essential in printing electr
