Xenon Intros Production-Line Sintering of Printed Electronics
Printed electronics can now be sintered at high speed.
Wilmington, MA — Xenon Corporation has introduced its Sinteron 5000 system, one of the first commercial systems for sintering printed electronics products at manufacturing speeds. According to the company, the new system uses its patented pulsed light technology to deliver high-energy bursts of pulsed light for sintering silver nano-inks on the production line at up to 100-ft (30.5m) per minute, without harming or overheating substrates such as plastic, film, cloth or paper. Pulsed UV Sintering is an essential step in producing printed inks that have the proper conductivity.

The Sinteron 5000 includes ten independently controlled lamps with a touch panel that allows operators to precisely control roll speed, active lamps, overlap between lamps, lamp pitch, and lamp footprint. An integrated 16-in. (406mm) wide conveyor system can be easily removed for roll-to-roll applications.

The Sinteron 5000 uses the same pulsed light technology that the company has patented and applied in many other industrial areas. It represents the culmination of years of experience working with printed ink manufacturers.The company is also developing a production system for sintering copper inks, with several sintering tools currently available for R&D use.
