Morningbird Media Corporation, a leader in additive manufacturing and technological innovation, just received a new patent that solidifies its 3D printer platform.
Morningbird Media Corporation was granted U.S. patent number 11,299,642 titled, “Systems and Methods of Additive Printing of Functional Electronic Circuits” by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on April 12, 2022. The Electronic Alchemy eForge from Morningbird Media Corporation is a multi-material fusion deposition modelling (FDM) 3D printer capable of producing a variety of electronic devices. This patent was first filed by Morningbird in 2018.
Their invention describes a system that deposits conductive, insulating, resistive, p-type semiconducting, n-type semiconducting, or capacitive filament mixes. Morningbird was previously credited as being the first to create a functional transistor using an FDM 3D printer.
“Without a doubt this is an important step forward in the evolution of additive manufacturing. The ability to produce complex devices with electronic function is groundbreaking,” said President/Chief Executive Officer Dr. Chance M. Glenn, Sr. “Our team has worked tirelessly to bring this technology into reality and we look forward to launching our product to the public very soon.”
Morningbird Media Corporation, founded in 2012, has been a pioneer in additive manufacturing, particularly in the areas of 3D printing electronics and multi-material 3D printing. Morningbird will enable households, enterprises, government organisations, and the creative at heart to channel their innovative energy while generating cost savings and efficiencies, thanks to its unique electronic 3D printing technologies.
Morningbird expects its electronic 3D printing solutions to help schools, telecoms, manufacturing, maker spaces, defence, financial services, individuals, and other organisations manufacture and copy the many gadgets they require. This will impact logistics and supply chain. Morningbird is continuing to develop a library of electronic devices that will be printed on the Electronic Alchemy eForge series 2.1, which is projected to be available to the public by the end of 2022.
