Established in 1982, Micropen is today a leader in "flow-based" micro dispensing techniques applying patterns of functional materials to the inside and outside of many standard and unique substrates. Micropen engineers design application-specific products to fit the needs of collaborative partners.
Micropen was founded to commercialize the direct printing system known as Micropen, a CAD/CAM-driven capillary dispensing tool akin to an ultra-precise micro-caulk gun. If the material is flowable and can be loaded into a syringe, the Micropen can print it onto virtually any surface. Today Micropen is used to make custom resistors.
Micropen also began manufacturing the bipolar ablation probe used in endoscopes to cauterize tissue. This was the beginning of advancing this technology into the medical market segment. “Micropenned” balloons, catheters, heaters, sensors, electrodes are just a few of the examples of products currently in the market.
The Micropen printing system is the core technology for the design and manufacturing of flowable materials onto simple and irregular, 3-D, substrates. In addition, New Yorker Electronics supplies the full line of products from Exxelia Ohmcraft, the sister division, including its complete line of resistors – chip resistors, flat leaded resistors, axial leaded resistors and custom resistive product solutions.
