Production Technologies for Large Area Flexible Electronics
The talk wants to give a broad picture on these new products and describes the potential market outlook. Then the talk tries to give a definition of common characteristics for printed electronics and the potential of not only single printed devices, but for integrated products which can consist of only printed devices or a mix of printed and silicone devices.
Out of the broad picture the talk focuses then on how to scale up processes from lab to fab, from the view of an equipment maker being in high tech developing markets like fuel cells, lithium ion batteries and solar for more than fifteen years.
From this overview the talk then gets more detailed into needed processes, parameters, printing systems, laser scribing, nano-imprint and coating systems. The next chapter describes the equipment solutions of today and tomorrow, which is the effort to give the existing state of the art of technology resulting of being in this market since ten years and the outlook into large scale factory solutions.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
