Recently, MGI, a French company known for its digital printing & finishing technologies, announced that it was going to acquire Ceradrop, a French company specializing in the printing of electronics and 3D microelectronic components. With this acquisition, MGI now enters the printed electronics market.

Founded by members of the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) as a spin-off project in 2006, the first Cera printer was sold in 2008. Since then, Ceradrop has developed ceramic and organic printed electronic materials in 2D and 3D.

But let me offer another perspective, an industrial application is one where a transition from short run custom printing for pilot projects, or prototypes is converted to a manufacturing process that integrates management, workflow, and an integrated digital printing solution that is used for full production runs.
