PEL will be teaching inkjet and digital print methods in the PRA Print and Ink Technology Course
Print & Ink Technology
21-23 May 2019 ,
A specialised three-day course. Taking as a guide for its content a review of the market volumes and growth areas, the course covers the formulation, application, manufacture and testing of inks, and reviews in the context of the inks, the substrates and the associated drying methods for all the various printing processes. Practical demonstrations and other media are used to illustrate the different inks and printing methods. Designed to appeal to a wide cross section of interests.
PEL taught a short course at IS&T Printing For Fabrication 2018 in Dresden (September 23-27, 2018).

SC16: Adapting Functional Materials for Ink Jet Deposition
Instructor: Clare Conboy, Printed Electronics Ltd.
Track: 3D/Digital Fabrication Technology
Inkjet printing is becoming increasingly widely adopted for applications outside traditional graphics printing. The ability to easily alter the image to be printed makes inkjet an attractive technique for one-off and short-run printing and consequently a good prototyping technique in the development of electronic circuits and 3D structures. As drops can be directed to specific target areas, it is also finding use in diagnostics, tablet manufacture, and biological-related activities on the one hand and in printing color filters or emissive polymers devices such as tv screens on the other. This course concentrates particularly on the formulation of material for deposition using inkjet printing.
This course will enable an attendee to::
- Appreciate the types of materials that can be deposited by IJP
- Understand some of the limitations imposed by the technique
- Indicate whether a material might be suitable for depositing by IJP
- Discern the basics of formulation for ink jet printing of functional materials
- Distinguish between ejection properties and functional properties of an ink
- Recognise the significance of processing methods and additives used in ink formulation
Intended Audience: scientists and engineers interested in inkjet printing as a manufacturing technique; product managers with potential applications in additive manufacturing and ink formulation chemists moving into inkjet
PEL exhibited at INNOLAE 2018 in Cambridge. January 23rd to 24th 2018.
The 4th annual Innovations in Large-Area Electronics Conference (innoLAE 2018) held at the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK on 23-24 January 2018. The conference programme highlights the most innovative and exciting aspects of large-area electronics (including printable, flexible or organic electronics) emerging technologies, their manufacture and the development of products incorporating large-area electronics. Through innoLAE, we provide a platform to help bring innovation into the market and accelerate take up of new technologies.
