Company sees potential for conductive inks for 3D and inkjet printing.
David Savastano, Editor12.03.15
Conductive inks are a critical component in printed electronics, with unique properties required for inkjet and other printing processes. With interest growing in 3D printing of conductive materials, conductive ink manufacturers are developing new products for this market.
PV Nano Cell (PVN) is one company that is making gains in 3D printing. Founded in 2009, PVN was initially focused on the photovoltaic (PV) market, developing its Sicrys portfolio of single-crystal nanometric conductive nano silver and copper inks for inkjet printing on flexible substrates. PVN has since branched out into a wide range of end uses, including sensors, RFID, touchscreens and printed circuit boards.
Most recently, PV Nano Cell has moved into the 3D printing space, working with a major 3D printer manufacturer on developing conductive inks. This led to the company receiving the award for Best Development in Materials for 3D Printing from IDTechEx during Printed Electronics USA 2015 in Nove
