Inkjet printing for making low cost displays and customized electronics

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther conference contributionProfessional


Inkjet printing is the only non-impact printing method where printhead and substrate are in no contact during printing. This enables printing on a variety of substrates ranging from glass, plastics and paper to three-dimensional surfaces. As a digital printing method inkjet printing also offers an opportunity to variable information. Every consecutively printed sample can be 100% different from each other thus enabling mass customisation of printed electronics. Inkjet printing also has very low material consumption compared to other printing methods where several ink liters are required to be able to print even one sample. Conductive inks can be very expesive so less material consumption is desired. As a conclusion inkjet printing is a suitable method for making printed display elements and electronic components cost-efficiently and flexibly.
