PV Nano Cell Uses Sicrys Conductive Ink in R2R Printing


Reading time ( words)

PV Nano Cell Ltd., an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solutions and producer of conductive digital inks, has announced that its Sicrys™ conductive ink was successfully used in Roll-to-Roll (R2R) continues inkjet printing of electronics as part of the DigiMan project. PV Nano Cell project partners were: C.P.C Solutions Ltd., Fraunhofer IKTS and Fraunhofer ENAS, Kerafol Keramische Folien GmbH & Co. KG, RIIT Ltd. OSTEC Group, Technical University of Chemnitz and MEPhI.

The DigiMan Project (December 2018 – November 2020) developed innovative sensor platforms for agro-industrial applications by providing a digital manufacturing process based on printing technologies and nano-material inks. Such approach enables to miniaturize the sensors, achieve flexibility in the target sensor properties and to realize these sensors in economically affordable batches. As part of the project, Low-cost temperature and humidity sensors were realized in a roll-to-roll industrial inkjet printing system with nano silver inks on PET substrate, demonstrating the ability to print a large quantity of sensors with high yield. Furthermore, a Bluetooth based wireless communication board with an inkjet-printed silver antenna as well as a printed RFID NFC sensor tag were developed for wireless sensor communication.

 

PV Nano Cell’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Fernando de la Vega, commented, “The success of DigiMan project marks yet another valuable advancement of PV Nano Cell in demonstrating the validity of our complete digital conductive printing solutions for mass production applications. Special sensors were developed and printed with our conductive Sicrys™ inks in a roll-2-roll inkjet and sintering system. This achievement proves the complete solution approach of inks, printers and printing process can be utilized in mass-production roll-to-roll systems, a must for some of the high-volume applications”.

All Flex Discusses Merger and New Medical Applications

11/19/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I recently spoke with Jamin Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing at All Flex Flexible Circuits in Minnesota. We discussed the company’s recent merger with Printed Circuits Inc., and some creative new flex applications, including flexible heaters and catheters for the medical field. As Jamin explains, "It’s always interesting to see different technologies amongst different companies. We’re working on a few new applications and products, like being able to do some fine lines and flex materials, but with large format, a longer format than usual. Some of their capabilities with lasering and fine features really help with our long flex capability; when we merge the two, we see a new market being created for that technology."
