Printed electronics is one of the buzzwords in the industry and it has been a major theme at last year’s drupa. In the course of ever developing electronic devices, which have to be smaller and even more efficient at the same time, cost-effective methods and materials are on top of engineers’ and developers’ lists. The Japanese company Super Inkjet Technology (SIJT) Inc. might have created a solution for that. Their super fine inkjet, which is able to print onto different materials on the sub-micrometer scale, has great potential to revolutionize the printed electronics market.
