Xenon Corporation has announced the availability of the Sinteron 5000 system, one of the first commercial systems for sintering printed electronics products at manufacturing speeds. According to the company, the Sinteron 5000 system uses Xenon’s patented pulsed light technology to deliver high-energy bursts of pulsed light for sintering silver nano-inks on the production line at up to 100 feet per minute, without harming or overheating substrates such as plastic, film, cloth or paper. Pulsed UV sintering is an essential step in producing printed inks that have the proper conductivity.
The Sinteron 5000 includes 10 independently controlled lamps with a touch panel that allows operators to precisely control roll speed, active lamps, overlap between lamps, lamp pitch and lamp footprint. An integrated 16-inch wide conveyor system can be easily removed for roll-to-roll applications.
