Solutions

Currently InSensor offers two methods for deposition of PZT thick film. These are:

  • screen printing
  • pad printing

Screen printing is a well known technology used in the industry to print graphic illustrations, circuitry, surface protection layers etc. The printing equipment for screen printing is readily available at an affordable price and the technology has had time to mature.

Screen printing process

Screen printing is well suited for printing on large areas, but unfortunately it is limited to flat substrates. In order to print on surfaces with complex topography (e.g. curved surfaces), InSensor has developed a material which can be deposited using pad printing. Pad printing is also a well known technology often used for printing graphic images on round surfaces such as glass spheres, pens, golf balls etc. The marriage between pad printing and PZT thick film technology is something that has been developed internally in InSensor and only InSensor has the capability to offer this solution.

The simplicity and reliability of these manufacturing processes are brought together with an extensive know-how on materials and device design to form a versatile yet strong technology platform.
