Functional printing inks support the deposition of functional structures

Friday, 30 March 2012

Today, printing technologies are used not only for printing graphics. Inkjet printing and "Aerosol Jet” printing are non-contact processes for printing of e.g. electronic and sensor structures and offer many economic and ecological advantages.

Functional printing inks are one of the latest trends shown at the Symposium Source: Piotr Rzeszutek- Fotolia.com

The deposition of micro- and nano-particulate dispersions, so called "functional inks”, followed by a thermal activation allows the production of e.g. circuit boards, active and passive electronic devices, strain gauges, thermocouples and lightning applications. Dispersions of functional materials, like metals, alloys, dielectrics, ceramics and semi-conductors can be deposited directly on even non-conformal surfaces. Dr. Volker Zöllmer, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials, Germany, will show current challenges in the formulation of functional materials for deposition purposes and the required thermal activation of deposited structures to fulfill technical requirements. The European Coatings symposium "Printing inks – dramatic challenges” , which runs parallel to the print media trade show "Drupa” in Düsseldorf, Germany, will present an overview of latest material developments for printing inks, including Zöllmers presentation. The symposium takes place on 15 May 2012 in Düsseldorf.
