Thousands of electronic elements printed onto film or paper in a few hours: The Demo Line at the printed electronics trade show LOPEC 2015 in Munich, Germany, will showcase the production of electroluminescent film.
The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has successfully printed complex electronic circuits using a common t-shirt printer. The electronic circuits are printed using unique materials in layers on top of everyday flexible materials such as plastic, aluminium foil and even paper. Resistors, transistors and capacitors, the key components of a complex electronic circuit, are printed using non-toxic organic materials like silver nanoparticles, carbon and plastics.
An innovative method of removing contamination from process rollers has been devised by Teknek Ltd, a leading provider of contact cleaning equipment with headquarters in Renfrewshire, UK. The new process has been developed in cooperation with the research institution Holst Centre in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in order to enable the upscaling of plastic electronics production.
