Let’s face it, you need more work. That’s why NOW is the ideal time to explore emerging markets that are projected to grow exponentially: the manufacturing of simple electronic components including printed batteries, photovoltaics (solar cells), electroluminescent signs, OLED lighting, etc. These functional products involve printing patterns with conductive and dielectric inks—Printed Electronics. This session is your introduction to the various forms of printed electronics. Here you will learn about common technologies used for production, unique production challenges, tools used for characterizing and validating various ink layers, and how you can transition YOUR business to produce printed electronics in the future.
You Will Learn:

  • Several printed electronics applications, markets, and growth projections for these markets
  • Manufacturing techniques used for both conventional and printed organic electronics
  • Specific challenges and characteristics needed to optimize patterning and coating for electronics
  • Sample printing specifications and tolerances for electronics
  • Instruments used to measure and profile functional inks/layers
  • Equipment and plant modifications needed for this market

Who Should Attend:
Owners/CEOs, Market Development and Sales Managers, Research and Development Personnel, and Operations Managers

Business Categories:
Entrepreneurship, Executive, Management, Packaging, Printable Electronics, Production, Sales and Marketing, Trends and Opportunities
