Nanoprinting system designed by XTPL makes it possible to precisely apply to the surface a special ink formulated for this purpose in the company’s laboratories. The heart of the XTPL technology is innovative printing head designed by company’s specialists. It operates on the basis of a unique algorithm & enables ultraprecise application of the ink with nanoparticles and formation of conductive lines.
XTPL’s globally innovative technology enabling ultra-precise printing of nanomaterials and obtaining flexible, transparent, cost efficient & highly conductive lines will soon revolutionize sectors such as: printed electronics, flexible electronics, solar cells, touch screens, displays, wearables, smart packaging, automotive, biosensors, medical devices, anti-counterfeiting & open defect repair. XTPL provides also solutions for advanced research & prototyping as well as for the production of new generation of transparent conductive films.
During the process of line formation, the printing head deposits a properly formulated ink – nanoparticles in a mixture of solvents – on a non-conductive substrate, in example such as glass or flexible foil.
An external alternating electric field causes nanoparticles to assemble in a clearly defined and controlled way to form a line. The process takes place between a stationary and movable electrode.
Movable electrode: guides the formation of the line, which becomes an extension of the stationary electrode. Finally, the printing head short-circuits with a metallic pad, and the line connects to the pad while the printing head takes in an excess ink.
PROPERTIES OF XTPL LINES
XTPL silver line hundreds times thinner than a human hair flexible, transparent, cost efficient & highly conductive.
Nanoprinting will soon revolutionise sectors such as: printed electronics, solar cells, touch screens, wearable electronics, smart packaging, biosensors, anticounterfeiting & open defect repair.
In order to achive outstanding results XTPL creates own nanoink formulas with nanoparticles of: Ag, Au, Cu, CdS(QD), TiO2, ZnO; different possible shapes: spheres, wires, rods, rice.
