Printing Technolo- gies
For Additive Manufacturing, i.e. the application of two- or three-dimensional functional structures (e.g., for electronic or medical applications), state-of-the-art printing technologies play a key role.
Depending on the particular application several printing technologies are utilized at the MATERIALS institute:
- maskless non-contact digital technologies like inkjet printing or aerosol jet printing are taking advantage of their variability of the patterns to be printed.
- contact printing technologies like screen printing or flexography where the functional inks or pastes are applied onto the substrate via prefabricated screens (screen printing) or clichés (flexography).
