Printed Electronics: Coatings & Inks Conductive Fillers Selection

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Oct 28, 2014

Develop next generation printed electronics by better comparing conductive inks performance and cost for your RFID, printed circuits, solar cells... based on practical criteria (beyond producers’ resistivity claims).

Mike Mastropietro will detail how to reliably compare technologies (polymer thick film, metallo-organics, CNTs, ICP…) in your real use conditions (film thickness, resolution, curing…)

Why should you view this course?

In today’s competitive & fast-evolving market, all compete to bring printed electronics cost down. Should it be with traditional silver conductive systems or with innovative alternatives, it’s all but easy to decide which conductive ink is right for your application. By attending this course you will:

  1. Save time finding the right conductive ink for your application based on an organized set of selection criteria
  2. Better compare cost by learning how to calculate the cost per device from the cost per weight / volume of ink
  3. Optimize your production process by reviewing best printing and curing method per conductive inks type 

Who should view this course?

Manufacturers of Printed Electronics, Label & graphic printers and all those who want to optimize their costs and production process
