Healthcare is one of the most dynamic opportunities, as new markets for monitoring and fitness are constantly being developed. To meet the needs of this growing field, conduc-tive ink manufacturers are working on new high-tech materials.
This will be one of the key messages from industry leaders during the Electronic and Conductive Inks Conference. The conference will be held Oct. 17-18 at The Drake Hotel in Oakbrook, IL, near Chicago, in conjunction with the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers’ (NAPIM) annual NPIRI Technical Conference. It is co-sponsored by NAPIM and Rodman Media, publishers of Ink World Magazine and Printed Electronics Now.
Talks on printed electronics and healthcare will be given by the following presenters:
• Keynote Speaker: Dr. Erika Rebrosova, Electronic Materials Technology Manager, Sun Chemical, Advanced Materials Group – “The Technologist’s Guide to Printed Electronics”
• Robert Waldrop, Printed Electronics Business Development & Distribution Manager, DuPont Advanced Materials – “Stretching the Boundaries of Printed Electronics”
• Dr. Stefanie Harvey, R&D Program Manager, SEMI – “From Wellness to Medtech: The Role of Flexible, Printed Electronics in Wearables and Beyond”
• Dr. Vijaya Kayastha, Lead Device Development Engineer, Brewer Science, Inc. – “The Role of Materials in Performance of Printed Temperature Sensors”
• Casey Grenier, Ph.D., Material Scientist, R&D division of Tekscan, Inc. – “Applications for Tekscan’s Printed Force Sensor Technology, and the Inks that Make Them”
Production of printed electronics is also a focus, led by the following speakers:
• Bill Babe, Sales and Marketing Manager, Liquid X Printed Metals - “Roll to Roll Manufac-turing of Smart Textile Devices”
• Lou Panico, CEO, XENON Corporation – “High Volume Roll-to-Roll Flexible Hybrid Elec-tronics Production with Thermal Transfer”
• Stewart Rissley, Sales Account Manager, Wet Grinding & Dispersing, Bühler Inc. – “Advanced Technology and Process for Inks”
Major brands such as Audi, BMW, Ralph Lauren, L’Oreal and GE are among the many companies who are successfully incorporating electronic and conductive inks into their products.
The potential applications for the flexible and printed electronics industry are appearing rapidly, and electronic and conductive inks are driving this fast-growing technology.
