using basic, benign, water-based inputs. The process is green, scalable, and inexpensive – critical cha- racteristics for addressing big challenges in global problems like food, water, and energy efficiency.
http://www.vivenano.com ImageXpert Inc. in Nashua, USA, has a new con-
figuration of their JetXpert product that was show- casing in the poster sessions. It is a much smaller version (9.5“ optical head) and is suited for depositi- on applications.
Along with their world leading JetXpert system for analysis of drops in flight, ImageXpert also showca- sed a smaller version that is specifically designed for non-contact dispensing applications. With an eye toward the OEM market, the system was designed for integration into dispensing systems for pro- cess verification and control. Capitalizing on their successful technology, this new configuration has
many of the same features as the larger, more flexi- ble R&D system – single event imaging (one droplet per image) and measurement of velocity and volume of drops in flight. Volume can be measured on drops, drop series or ligaments based on the characteristics of the dispensing system and fluid.
