The Future of Screen Printing for Printed Electronics
12 May 2023
Discover the Future of Screen Printing at TechBlick's Exclusive Event
Join us for a unique workshop discussing the present and the future of screen printed electronics, the workhorse of the industry and the ever technology that never ceases to improve.
We have designed this workshop because we believe that screen printing remains the most important technology in printed electronics. More importantly though because we believe that screen printing is a team sports where future advances are only possible through a close collaboration of all the key participants. This is one this event is centred around discussions, networkings, and Q&As.
This essential gathering highlights the latest innovations in all aspects of screen printing in various applications and enables one-on-one speed dating. Crucially, this event brings you a panel of industry experience with combined experiences in excess of 50 years in the industry. This will be a fantastic opportunity to discuss challenges, opportunities and solutions in the industry
Outline of the Agenda:
State-of-the-Art Talks: Discover advances in screen printing in various applications. Speakers thus far include
Peter Wolf from Suzhou Maxwell Technologies Co., Ltd. outlining the latest developments in screen printing in photovoltaics (PERC, HJT and IBC PVs)
Peter Erstman from RISE Research Institute of Sweden
Daniel Gilsdorf from SEFAR outlining innovations in mesh making, especially to support fineline printing
Speed Networking Session: Meet and engage with industry players through a series of private 5-minute video calls, expanding your network and fostering potential collaborations.
Expert Panel, Live Q&A, and Interaction: Curated by Mr. Fernando Zicarrelli, this distinguished panel brings together world-class experts in screen printing for an interactive and insightful discussion.
The panelists bring a combined industry experience of more than 50 years. They include:
Ron Hayden from RH Solutions LLC with a focus on Screen Printing and Auxiliary Equipment
David Eisenbeiss from Kissel + Wolf Group with a focus on emulsion Technology, including the latest Laser Imaging developments
Fernando Zicarelli from Fernando's Consulting (formerly at Asada Mesh) with a focus on Mesh Technology and Tooling
Erika Rebrosova from Sun Chemical with a focus on ink technology
Each panelist will provide a 10-minute overview of their expertise, current state-of-the-art technology, and future developments.
This is followed by a panel discussion about the toughest challenges for the technology. The audience will have a chance to ask the panellist targeted questions related to the challenges faced in their own areas.
There will also be an open discussion about the future challenges facing the industry. The aim of the meeting is open discussion and active engagement facilitated by our experts.
Some of the topics which will be addressed include
Resolution Limitations and Ultrafineline printing: How can we improve the fine-feature resolution in screen printing to open new applications? What are the material and tooling challenges? What are the industry/business model challenges?
High-Speed Production: What advancements can be made to increase the production speed while maintaining high print quality and precision?
Material Compatibility: How can we ensure compatibility between different inks, substrates, and other materials used in the screen printing process for printed electronics?
Process Control and Automation: What innovations in process control and automation can be implemented to optimize the screen printing process for printed electronics?
Ink Development: How can we advance functional ink technology to improve performance, reliability, and cost-effectiveness in printed electronics?
Lowering barriers to adoption and experimentation: How can we allow the industry to experiment faster and cheaper with screen printer and ease the design-to-production pathway?
How can we ensure that we train the next generation of skilled engineers in this industry?
Finally, an open discussion will address the future challenges and opportunities facing the industry. The goal of this meeting is to encourage open dialogue and active engagement, facilitated by our distinguished experts.
Do NOT miss this chance to participate in this event. This is the place to learn and together advance screen printing further.
