Purpose and goal

The goal for this project was to develop materials and processing for next generation high voltage products. In terms of materials, all set goals have been met. The results of this project are three new material systems: a) Zinc-based, b) Copper-based and c) Nickel-based printed films via inkjet Printing Technique. This project brought remarkable findings in term of scientific content and technological aspects of Printed Electronics technology which will be further explored by both RISE Acreo and ABB.

Expected results and effects

This project brought remarkable findings in term of scientific content and technological aspects of Printed Electronics technology which will be further explored by both RISE Acreo and ABB. We have developed a completely novel approach in the field of printed metal films. The advantages with the novel approach is first, lowered cost, second, the entire process can be carried out at room temperature, which significantly reduces the costs of printing facilities. The outcomes are going to be patented (1-3 patents).

Planned approach and implementation

RISE and ABB are going to prepare another work plan to continue the implementation of the developed technology in an intended application. The results of the project has also open new possibilities for ABB to use in several applications. At RISE Acreo this work will be carried on within EU funded project LEE BED for the next 4 years together with other academic and industrial partners.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
