Bringing Printed Electronics to the Hannover Messe 2022

Keiron Printing Technologies BV is proud to be one of the 40 top tech companies to present its country at the Netherlands Innovation Square at the Hannover Messe 2022. The company will be introducing its first product, based on the Laser-Induced Forward Transfer technology, at the exhibition and is looking to deal with interested electronics manufacturers and OEMs who would like to integrate Keiron’s solution.

What Does Keiron Printing Technologies Offer?

Keiron is an equipment company and spin-off from TNO. The company is developing and selling some of the most advanced additive manufacturing devices to print interconnects. Industries such as 3D electronics, automotive, consumer electronics, semiconductors, and others, can benefit from this technology. The process is capable of depositing highly viscous conductive and dielectric inks.

This year, the company is releasing its LIFT version of the infamous ‘Drop Watcher’ and a pre-production tool. Consequently, Keiron is working to advance its capabilities further and scale-up for high throughput applications. The goal is to develop and sell modular systems that OEMs can integrate into solutions, equipment, and production lines.

Why Laser-Induced Forward Transfer?

The industry is moving towards an additive approach to manufacturing. Additive manufacturing is gaining momentum and has proven itself a more sustainable and cost-effective method to manufacture components. Furthermore, the methodology helps increase the flexibility and customization in production, allowing for quick turnarounds.

Due to its light-based proposition, Keiron’s LIFT technology can print tiny features between 30 and 100’s microns, depending on material properties, at high speeds (100,000 droplets per second). The actuation of light is many times faster than the mechanical nature of conventional printing methods like Inkjet and Dispensing. Additionally, where suppliers tailor materials to suit the Inkjet process, Keiron’s solution can work with commercially available inks and pastes known for screen printing.

Thirdly, the printing process Keiron is industrializing works non-contact. This feature allows for printing on flat and complex surfaces, such as over and on top of components. Alternatively, topographies are challenging and sometimes impossible to print over when using inkjet, dispensing, or screen printing. LIFT solves this problem, also allowing for stacking multiple types of materials.

Where Can I Find Keiron Printing Technologies at Hannover Messe 2022?

Keiron will be located at the Netherlands Innovation Square with their booth in Hall 003, at stand A20, (B38). You can contact and set a meeting with Keiron upfront by sending an email to info@keirontechnologies.com. Make sure to reserve your timeslot in time.
