PEL are experts in screen printing and we try to push the boundaries in terms of smaller feature size and larger print size or complexity. Our customer requirements are stringent and we screen print in clean room where needed.
Screen printing is the most commonly used print method in the Printed Electronics Industry – and for good reason: screen printing inks and methods are mature and reliable.
Screen printing is our default method of manufacture for most printed parts that we sell. Our capability is from 30um features upwards with most typical features for volume production being, often very dense, 200um track and gap.
We manufacture sensors, flex circuits, wearable electronics elements and devices for security and protection. If the product needs to be repeatably the same, then screen printing is probably the best choice for printable electronics.
Quick Turn manufacturing
We can offer production within a few days if we can manufacture the screen in-house. If using external screens production times are typically much less than one month.
