PEN develops inkjet multifunctional copper ink for 3D printed electronics

PEN Inc. is developing an inkjet nano-copper ink suitable for 3D printing of metallic structures.
"The success of the electronic 3D printing industry depends on the ability to make metallic objects or parts that have a metallic component, but suitable metallic inks and printing methods have not been readily available. The new ink enables novel sintering methods using a photo curing Xenon 2000 unit operated sequentially for each 5 micrometer thick inkjet trace in ambient air and room temperature," explained Dr. Zvi Yaniv the lead researcher.

The novel 3D copper ink technology was developed at the Company's Applied Nanotech Inc. subsidiary in Austin, Texas, which serves as the PEN Design Center.

"3D printing is the fastest growing segment in printed electronics, but without 3D metal printing its scope will be commercially limited. Our new technology has the potential to transform production in a wide range of industries, from medical devices to structural electronics," said Dr. Richard Fink, President of Applied Nanotech, Inc.
