Novacentrix:: PulseForge Tools for Printed Electronics :: Photonic Curing :: Flash Annealing :: Sintering Nanoparticles

The PulseForge 1100 from NovaCentrix is specifically designed as a process and application development tool. Designed for use by researchers and engineers in printed electronics, this tool is used in the development of innovative products in markets such as solar, rfid, smart cards, smart packaging, and displays – products which offer better performance, at less cost, and often in new, flexible form factors.

The basis of this ability is the patented use of light energy. The PulseForge tools do not use lasers, are not based on UV lamps, and are not traditional ovens. Instead, they are built around proprietary lamps that can process wide areas at a time, without rastering, and that have the capability to deliver significant energy to the surface of the application–enough to sinter metal inks. What makes PulseForge tools even more special, though, is that they do this in milliseconds. By processing the inks so quickly, the substrates on which they are printed are unaffected. As a result, inks can be sintered on substrates with low melting temperatures, such as thin plastics like PET, PVC, polyethylene, and other materials such as paper. Additionally, because of the very high processing speeds, alternative conductive materials such as copper can now be used effectively.

The PulseForge 1100 is very simple to operate, in spite of the complexity of the technology inside. Researchers and engineers can quickly move through feasibility tests as well as elaborate Design of Experiment programs.

Novacentrix:: Printed Electronics :: Photonic Curing :: Photonic Sintering :: Photosintering :: Conductive Inks :: Flash Annealing :: Sintering Nanopa

Metalon conductive inks capitalize on advanced materials and formulation to provide conductivity options for additive manufacturing of printed electronics like photovoltaic devices, RFID, smart cards/labels, displays, and advanced packaging. The combination of Metalon and PulseForge allows conductivity requirements to be met using thin flexible substrates, and most substrates remain unaffected because of the very short pulse duration.

Novacentrix:: Printed Electronics :: Photonic Curing :: Photonic Sintering :: Photosintering :: Conductive Inks :: Flash Annealing :: Sintering Nanopa

NovaCentrix’s patented pulsed plasma process produces unagglomerated nanopowders with unsurpassed size control in the range of about 10 nm to 100 nm in diameter. The particles are synthesized using a repetitive, high power, pulsed electrical arc discharge between two feedstock metal rods. After quenching, the nanoparticles are removed from the gas stream, the electrodes are indexed in, and the process is repeated.
