3D printing with embedded functionalities

Abstract :

With the adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM) to more and more applications for structural parts and mechanisms, it is interesting to evaluate the possibility to add more functionalities in 3D parts. Already many applications have been demonstrated of 3D printed cooling systems. At CSEM, we are developing different methods to embed electrical functionalities, sensors and actuators to manufacture smart systems. Different applications will be presented.

Bio :

Sébastien Lani received a MS degree in 2004 in Chemical engineering from University Paris VI, France. He received a PhD in physics in 2007 from the university Paris XI on "MEMS wafer level packaging". After 2 post doc experiences in micro and nano systems fabrication and characterization, respectively at CNRS (France) and EPFL (Switzerland), he joined CSEM as a R&D engineer to develop optical microsystems. He is now project manager in the field of microsystem and additive manufacturing technologies. Since 2017 he is responsible at CSEM of the advanced micro manufacturing research activity and the additive manufacturing technology platform.
