The Electro-mechanical analysis of conductive tracks in Lightweight Embedded Electronics

embedded

The increasing demand for flexible, stretchable and embedded electronic technologies has resulted in the deployment of Additive Manufacturing (AM) techniques for the production of electronic components and interconnecting conducting tracks via the accurate and selective deposition of conductive inks. The electromechanical performance of the conductive track material is captured by the response of the effective resistivity under increasing mechanical strains and of particular importance for the functionality of the printed products.

3D Printing of Batteries: Fiction or Reality?

alexis maurel

Motivated by the request to build flexible, wearable and customizable batteries of any shape while maximizing the energy storage and electrochemical performances, additive manufacturing, also called 3D printing, appears as a cutting-edge revolutionary discipline.

Battery components such as electrodes, separator, electrolyte, current collectors and casing can be tailored with any shape, therefore allowing the future direct incorporation of batteries and all electronics within the final three-dimensional object.

Digital Mass Manufacturing of Electronics – Breaking the Mold

Ralph Birnbaum

Continuous Laser Assisted Deposition. C.L.A.D. is technology developed for additive manufacturing based on the LIFT (Laser Induced Forward Transfer) technology. A material, evenly coated on a transparent carrier film, passes under a laser. The laser applies a short burst of energy to it. This releases perfectly consistent drops of material onto the substrate below. The material drops can then be sintered or cured inline, within the same machine. A great benefit is that this technology works for solder and polymers as well as for metals and ceramics. Up to six materials can be printed at the same time.

3D Printed Electronics – Sustainable Manufacture of Mechatronic Systems

Martin Hedges

This presentation will introduce recent developments related to the production of 3D mechatronic systems via Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes and well as present the potential for improved sustainability via automated recycling and component reuse.

The 3D PE process consists of a reconfigurable array of structural and electronics printing, pre- and post processing techniques in combination with SMD technologies. The digitally driven process chain can be easily reconfigured to cope with rapid changes in product type whilst retaining the ability to be scaled through to volume manufacture. Whilst the use of these processes is more sustainable than traditional electronics manufacturing it also enables automated recycling of the mechatronic product at the end of life.

Flexible and Conformable Electronics for Next-Generation Devices

Shweta Agrwala

presentation by Shweta Argawala, Tenure-Track Assistant Professor, Aarhus University at ONLINE 3D Printing Electronics Conference (21 January 2021, 14:00 – 18:00 CET). REGISTER HERE to attend the conference

Moving forward biomedical devices will require materials and platforms that have Young’s modulus closer to human skin. Direct writing of electronics using functional inks on flexible, stretchable and biocompatible substrates will open doors for innovation in biomedical and health technology. This will tackle the issues of immune reactions and scarring of tissue that hamper the successful use of implantable devices for longer durations.

I will talk about our research on developing novel functional inks for electronic applications that can be directly written on unconventional substrates to enable next-generation devices. The focus is to understand the ink-substrate interactions to print homogeneous and high-resolution circuits.

I will also discuss various application areas, where printed electronics is pushing design innovation for sustainable and biodegradable electronics.
