Printing in a Small World: New Desktop Printer for Micro-Sized Particles

micro-sized particles

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.

Flexible OLEDs Take Photonics Technologies from Lab to Market

At the moment, not a day passes without exciting news on printed electronics. Therefore, it is no surprise, that we gave these future technologies a prominent platform once again with our PEPSO area for innovative printed electronic products at drupa 2016 and still bear them in mind with a view at drupa 2020. Among the promising solutions from this field are organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Thanks to PI-SCALE, it is now economically attractive to realize innovative products with flexible OLEDs even for SMEs.

Printing the Internet of Things to Save the Environment

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is looking forward to an exciting future. Although it is going to entail many advantages, some experts are concerned about its environmental impact. After all, it will comprise more than 200 billion connected devices by 2021 resulting in a huge amount of e-waste due to the batteries needed in order to power them. But Finnish researchers are already searching for a solution.
