Project HiperLAM Delivers Outstanding Results Using PV Nano Cell’s Sicrys Ink


Reading time ( words)

PV Nano Cell Ltd, an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solutions and producer of conductive digital inks, announced that its Sicrys™ ink was successfully used to deliver exceptional results in HiperLAM—a European Union-funded program to laser print RFID antennas and fingerprint sensors.

The HiperLAM project is focused on demonstrating superior cost and speed performance in end-to-end processes featuring laser-based additive manufacturing. Two key applications requiring high resolution printed conductive metallic lines are studied. Laser printed RFID antennas and laser printed fingerprint sensors. The project received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program under Grant Agreement No. 723879.

PV Nano Cell’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Fernando de la Vega, commented, “We are happy to yet again join hands with some of the leading researchers and commercial companies in the world to develop new digital additive manufacturing technologies. This time we focus on LIFT – Laser Induced Forward Transfer technology. This technology enables printing in both solid and liquid phase, down to 10 µm in resolution, a variety of materials are supported and no use of nozzles. We provided our specially designed ink to accommodate the unique needs of the technology and I'm happy to share the results were very impressive. The lines width achieved is around 90 µm and the pitch is around 20 µm. The printed samples are of excellent quality, with low resistance and suitable for high frequency band applications.”

One of the leading partners in this program is NTUA - National Technical University of Athens. Professor Ioanna Zergioti from the School of Applied Mathematics and Physical Sciences commented, “Our collaboration with PV Nano Cell (PVN) resulted in new scientific results but also in new products. This combination is very difficult to achieve and we thank the team from PVN for their contribution to deliver high quality work and producing new inks for the digital printing process.”

PV Nano Cell’s Chief of Business Development Officer, Mr. Hanan Markovich commented, “Demonstrating commercial capabilities of the LIFT technology is of high importance to PV Nano Cell as we develop additional additive manufacturing products for conductive printing. We believe there is great potential in using lasers to print and that this technology is complementary to inkjet printing. We've already started to formulate new partnerships in this area and look forward to growing the business with yet another, new and exciting potential growth engine.”

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
