Printed electronics are part of a rapidly evolving industry. At e2ip, we offer a variety of printed electronic technologies with applications in industries like aerospace, medical, defense, transport, and industrial.
To give you a better understanding of how printed electronics work, here is some useful information:
Printed electronic technologies refer to electronics combined with various printing techniques, including screen printing, rotogravure printing, flexographie, spin-coating, vacuum evaporation, Offset, roll-to-roll and inkjet printing. Printed electronics is the umbrella term used to describe the process of printing circuits on a variety of flexible substrates to create electronic solutions.
As the demand for faster, thinner, lighter and more flexible electronics increases, printed electronics are reaching more and more industries and are becoming the must-have technology for various applications.
There are endless innovative applications where printed electronics can be integrated. Some typical examples are:
Printed electronics are part of a rapidly evolving, fast-paced industry. Choosing which printed electronic technology works best for you depends on what kind of application you will need it for.
e2ip’s printable electronic solutions are engineered using leading-edge materials and processes. They are integrated into OEM products to meet or improve specific requirements.
Screen printing is a printing technique of creating a picture or a pattern by forcing ink or conductive ink onto a surface through a screen of fine material. This technique is common for the printing of components related to printed electronics, such as the visual (commonly known as the Graphic Layer) and the conductive layer (commonly known as the Circuit Layer).
In the process of manufacturing printed electronics, the printing of the conductive ink is an essential component to the functionality of the products. Conductive inks such as our MINK are special inks designed to conduct electricity. They are used to print flexible printed electronic circuits on various types of materials and make objects more communicative or capable of storing information.
If you have any questions about printed electronic technologies, conductive inks, or screen printing, the professionals at e2ip can help.
