CPI, in conjunction with the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF), is running four regional printable electronics workshops in March and April 2012.
CPI is opening a new line which will enable the generation of functional devices by the combination of electronic components with circuits prepared by traditional printing processes. The line has the capability to perform flexo, gravure, offset litho, rotary screen printing processes alongside cut/crease operations and pick and place technology.
The new technology is easily adopted by the established print industry as the print element uses conventional printing techniques. The electronics components are readily available with industry standard pick and place technology used to position on a printed substrate.
