COPPER INK FOR PRINTED ELECTRONICS
WHY IS PRINTED ELECTRONICS IMPORTANT?
Printed Electronics is one of the fastest-growing trends in electronics manufacturing today, enabling printing of devices on various substrates and structures.
When applicable, it is highly cost-effective, fast, more environment-friendly and well adapted for mass-manufacturing. Printing Electronics is allows the development of thin, flexible electronics, and imperative for applications such as RFIDs, wireless sensors, displays and many other emerging technologies.
New, high-performance materials and printing processes are critical for the development of printed electronics, this is exactly what PrintCB is about.
Copper is a key material in the electrical and electronics industry, it is highly electrically and thermally conductive, as well as low cost. Printing of copper has been this industry’s dream for many years. However, physical barriers prevent effective printing of copper mainly due to oxidation considerations.
To date, most platforms printing electronics use silver-inks which are highly conductive and do not oxidize but are expensive and pose significant challenges in performance. This is why copper-ink is so important. This is why PrintCB’s copper ink is so disruptive.
PrintCB’s copper ink processing requires no changes to capital equipment (i.e. inert gasses or laser sintering) and can cured in air using standard conveyor or box ovens, while maintaining high conductivity.
CEO and Co-Founder
After spending 15 years in various leadership positions including R&D and Engineering in Semiconductors and Nanotechnology companies as well as at HP-Indigo where he managed a demo-center for newly-launched products, Sagi has founded PrintCB with a vision of creating a new, digital platform for electronics manufacturing. Sagi holds a BSc. and MSc in Chemical/Materials engineering both from the Technion and a MBA from Tel-Aviv University.
