Xaar, iTi and Cima NanoTech collaboration debuts at SID 2006

Published on 2006-06-02. Author : SpecialChem

Visitors to SID 2006 will be able to witness the result of the collaboration between Xaar, ITI and Cima NanoTech to produce an off-the-shelf solutions for silver nanoparticle inkjet printing for the electronic industry. On booth 1709, representative from each company will demonstrate and discuss how bringing their core competencies together has delivered significant benefits to the manufacturer of products such as flat panel displays, RFID tags, fuel cells and electronic components.

The project combines Xaar's innovative piezoelectric inkjet technology with iTi's XY Materials Deposition System(XYMDS), a precision fabrication tool for digitally printed electronics, and Cima NanoTech's proprietary nanomaterial ink technologies for the electronics industry.

Digital Printing via piezoelectric inkjet offers important cost and time saving advantages over traditional electronics manufacturing methods. As an additive manufacturing method, inkjet printing offers more efficient materials utilisation and a reduction in waste. Inkjet delivers increased flexibility by enabling the production of 1-off prototypes and quick turn and volume products. It holds the promise of increased compatibility with a much wider range of fluids and substrates for additional flexibility and cost savings in the future.
