Seminar »Printed Electronics using Screen Printing Technology«

Function-integrated components are in the focus of different industrial companies. Additive manufacturing processes and functional printing enable a high functional density and customer-specific product customization. In addition to intensive research and development, new technologies also require well-founded training and further education of specialists.

Fraunhofer IFAM and ESMA therefore offer a practical training course on printed electronics using screen printing technology. The participants of the seminar receive an application-oriented qualification in our laboratories in exchange with our experts. Functional screen printing of electrically conductive structures and other printing technologies will be demonstrated with practical demonstrations and the topic of functional integration will be clearly conveyed.

Fraunhofer IFAM has broad expertise in printing inks and pastes for targeted functional integration in components and structures. The development of the printing technologies at Fraunhofer IFAM is directly linked to the development of the functional materials associated with the new technologies. A wide range of materials from metals and alloys to polymers and composites are used.

The seminar at the Fraunhofer IFAM in Bremen clearly explains the functional principles and how screen printing of electrically conductive structures and other important printing technologies work.

In our laboratories, the participants work out possible applications in flexible 2D and 3D printed electronics in exchange with our experts.

The participants will thus receive a comprehensive qualification in theory and practice on the subject of functionally integrated components.
