As the market for printed electronics continues to grow across industries, the range of consumer electronics, automotive, appliance, medical, and industrial applications available will expand and diversify. Moreover, one of the key issues our industry has faced for years is the compatibility of the chemistries, application technologies, and substrates used in printed electronics. Therefore, the more we can easily control these complicated parameters, the better the results and the more efficient the process and printed electronic devices become. Now add wearable electronics and the increasing demand for embedded circuitry with less space for more durability and a more conformable shape to the mix, and the problem becomes exponentially more complicated.
So why not combine the expertise and infrastructure of more traditional application technologies (like screen-printed heat transfers) with uniquely transferrable printed circuitry to allow for conformity to the desired 3D part? Nissha GSI Technologies and the PPG Conductive Materials Group have developed a patented process referred to as Thermal Transfer Printed Electronics, an efficient and cost-effective way to screen print conductive circuitry to a PET carrier substrate that can then be quickly transferred to a 3D part within seconds. Nissha GSI and PPG have applied this technology to projects with automotive OEM's, cell phone manufacturers, a major consumer electronics company, and a top tier computer OEM to successfully create significant cost efficiencies.
Nissha GSI has long-standing relationships with key material, technology, and equipment suppliers, enabling us to give you consistent quality at competitive prices.
Nissha GSI has years of experience for both thermal heat transfers and printed electronics. By combining our history of production strengths, Nissha GSI can effectively and successfully apply flexible printed technologies to conform with any 3D part.
Flat-bed print lines are utilized to support early stage process development and for producing prototypes. As volume grows, our roll-to-roll print lines have the print speed and drying capacity to support high-volume requirements.
Products are produced every day based on a large variety of substrates and conductive materials. Systems include silver, silver chloride, gold, carbon, platinized carbon, nickel, zinc, bismuth, tungsten, graphene, and various unique nanoparticle materials.
