Purpose and goal
The aim of the project was to investigate the possibility of using digital trimming of passive components made with printing technology to reduce the distribution in performance. The project has shown this for screen-printed capacitors and resistor. The results show that the digital trimming method is well suited for the production of printed electronics.
Expected results and effects
The project results show the usability of the digital trimming method. Production of printed electronics can be improved with the tested method. Higher yield can provide both lower manufacturing costs and a positive contribution to sustainability through lower waste. The results are not yet implemented in the production.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been completed with two partners; An institute (RISE) and a newly started small company (Consensum Production). The basic studies of the technique were carried out by the Institute and the production-close parts were carried out by the company. The implementation of the project has worked well and both parties have worked towards the goals set and are important for the company´s development and competitiveness.
