11:45 3D printing at the heart of advanced manufacturing
Dr. Sebastien Lani, CSEM Centre Suisse d´Electronique et de Microtechnique SA, Neuchâtel, Schweiz
Additive manufacturing is currently at the heart of the digital manufacturing trend. It englobes more than 15 different technologies. Most of them are relying on the fabrication of a part made from 1 or 2 materials with only 1 fabrication technology. Sébastien Lani will talk about how CSEM are developing technologies and materials to create 3D components on substrates or on 3D objects to form improved printed devices with an increase of functionality and complexity, such as actuator and sensors. They are particularly focusing on the realization of hybrids millimetre scale components for applications in watch, sensing and medical fields. Different examples will be given and discussed like the integration of force sensors on prosthesis to map pressure distribution.

Sébastien Lani received a BS degree and MS degree respectively in 2002 and 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 manufacturing research activity. He is author or co-author of 11 patents and 20 peer reviewed publications.
