SonoPlot Brings Complete Solution to the Printable Electronics Research Market with Xerox Electronic Ink Package

Nov 18, 2015

SonoPlot’s Microlotter line of precision micro-printers paired with Xerox’s line of silver nanoparticle conductive inks, semiconducting polymers, and dielectric coatings provide a complete solution for a wide range of printable electronics products. As part of this interaction, the Xerox Research Centre of Canada (XRCC) is providing custom ink packages that can be printed using SonoPlot’s highly flexible Microplotters to develop everything from sensors to transistors.

SonoPlot and Xerox's Material Science division are working together, providing a full solution to the printable electronics market. SonoPlot brings extensive expertise in high precision micro-printing while Xerox provides a rich array of materials combining for an ideal package to print conductive inks, polymers, nanotubes and graphene solutions.

“We are very pleased to work with Xerox to deliver the building blocks our customers need to build the next generation of printable electronics,” said Brad Larson, CEO of SonoPlot. “Our customers are developing innovative products and this partnership adds to their ability to bring these to market.”

SonoPlot’s portfolio of GIX Microplotters allow customers to create and iterate design alternatives quickly accelerating time to production or perform key research. Xerox's catalog of materials enable these customers to find the ideal characteristics required for their projects.

SonoPlot Launches the Microplotter Proto

Jul 16, 2015

SonoPlot, Inc. today announced the Microplotter Proto, the latest addition to SonoPlot’s Microplotter family. The Microplotter Proto is a picoliter printing system for rapid prototyping, printed electronics, and life sciences research and is ideal for applications requiring flexibility at an affordable price.

The Microplotter Proto utilizes the same patented ultrasonic liquid dispensing technology as the Microplotter II, which enables the printing of a broad range of liquid viscosities and solvent types. SonoPlot’s technology is well-suited for use with materials other systems struggle with, such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, conductive polymers, and microparticle mixtures. Applications of this system in printed electronics range from OLED transistors to RFID and antennas and environmental sensors. Life science applications including patterning of live cells to proteomics.

The Microplotter Proto has a robust and rigid positioning system that is compact and lightweight enough to place on a table or lab bench. The entire system is a turnkey package, ready to use out of the box for research or rapid prototyping.

The system is available for order starting today, and you can contact sales@sonoplot.com for more information.

SonoPlot Announces More Dispenser Options for GIX Microplotter Instruments

Jul 2, 2012

SonoPlot has just extended the range of dispenser cartridges it sells for its GIX Microplotter instruments, and has begun selling raw glass micropipettes for use in refurbishing existing cartridges.

Previously, the company offered dispenser cartridges with glass micropipettes that had apertures of either 10 or 30 microns in diameter. With the addition of new production machinery, SonoPlot is now able to produce dispensers with any micropipette aperture size between 10 and 60 microns in diameter.

Additionally, SonoPlot now sells just the glass micropipette elements for those who wish to refurbish dispenser cartridges at their own facility. These are also available in aperture sizes ranging from 10 to 60 microns in diameter.

To place orders for dispensers or glass micropipettes, please contact sales@sonoplot.com or call (608) 824-9311.
