Large Surface Printed Electronics
Pictic, Liten's large-area printing platform, specializes in printing electronics on flexible substrates. The platform scales up production processes developed in the lab for use in full-scale manufacturing environments. The platform develops smart materials like plastic, paper, and textiles. Electronic functions are printed directly onto the materials' surfaces up to 320x380 mm2. The potential uses for these materials are vast. Human-machine interfaces, smart lighting, interactive displays, and environmental monitoring are just a few examples.
It is the only specialized R&D platform in Europe to:
Electronic ink development and formulation
Process development, optimization, and reliability
Pictic processes are particularly precise and cost-competitive. Electronic functions can be deposited in one process step, and the use of lithography is not required. These technologies can be combined with plastic injection overmolding for plastronics applications.
