Printed Electronics

Printed electronics refers to the combination of conductive materials as well as varnish and ink systems that are transferred to film, paper or other substrates in multiple layers over a large area and at low cost.

Exemplary Structure of Printed Electronics

Printed electronics perform some of the tasks of conventional electronics, but offer special processing possibilities.

Whether conductive webs, resistors or other technical functions—films in particular can be printed or die-cut with any desired properties. At the same time, the film remains light, thin and flexible—one of the basic requirements for space-saving installation in a wide variety of products for different industries—Pharmaceutical Industry, Medical Technology, Automotive Industry, Cards and Payment:

  • Printed conductive traces
  • Antennas
  • Heating elements
  • Multifunctional user interfaces
  • Touch sensors
  • Sensors

What Are the Advantages of Printed Electronics?

  • Generation of transparent and opaque electrically conductive structures
  • Flat, stable, ultra-thin, flexible, lightweight and translucent
  • Automatic or manual application: self-adhesive or ungummed
  • Contacting by plug-in or spring contacts—optionally with additional corrosion protection
  • Use of different films with different properties possible (e.g. TPU/PVC/PET)
  • Easy product integration due to self-adhesive equipment
