7th PrintoCent Industry Seminar – PRINSE’22 in June 8–9, 2022

Building sustainable world enabled by PrintoCent Community

PRINSE’22 will cover topics from printed intelligence to system-level reliable, sustainable and eco-friendly solutions for Future Products 

Now the first structural electronics solutions have been manufactured. PrintoCent roadmap work proved the need to broaden the scope to dedicated system design and manufacturing services for a wider range of applications. Structural integration in glass, in plastics, in laminates, and in biomaterials will explode the variety of product creation as will be seen with the Identified Future Products.

Besides top industry speakers and visionary keynotes, we are organizing training of integrated polymer photonic systems, trainings on Electrochromic visual interfaces and Reliability testing, round table sessions on printed intelligence in food safety, battery manufacturing and health tech, and visits to regional printed electronics companies.

This inspiring international event will host +200 participants around the world, while offering an excellent setting for networking and matchmaking. More than 50 industrial companies will be presenting. To facilitate collaboration with the great experts from industry leaders, we will also have an interactive Innovation Market Place and Bazaar with demos.

The location for the event is Oulu, Finland.

Do reserve this week, as the offering will be worth it!

Programme
MONDAY 6.6
09:00-17:00

Integrated polymer photonic systems provided by VTT

The European Photonics Academy will offer training courses beyond the lecture room with a strong focus on hands-on training. Course attendees will gain real-world experience using state-of-the-art design, manufacturing, test equipment and facilities. The academy’s training centres will offer unique courses across a wide range of photonics technology platforms and application domains. The academy will initially run for four years with the clear intention of becoming a sustainable long-term support to European industry. More info of PhotonHub Europe

Integrated (embedded) polymer photonics systems are key building blocks in many disruptive product innovations like multidisciplinary environment and diagnostic sensors, displays, energy sources and wearable devices. This 3-day training course provides overview on the realization of functional systems using non-conventional fabrication technologies based on polymer-based materials and their printing- and hybrid integration. Hands-on training includes the participation in the real production runs comprising component fabrication by nanoimprinting, non-photonic microfluidics and flexible electronics board fabrication, hybrid integration of Si/compound semiconductor components on flexible/stretchable carriers and post-processing by roll-to-roll injection moulding. During test runs, functional components and systems are realized.

Training cost: 500 EUR (includes catering and project consumables), Training capacity: max 20 persons

TUESDAY 7.6
10:00-12:00

Electrochromic IoT visual interfaces and end use applications by Ynvisible

This session is more like a hands on experience on how to use electrochromic displays (ECD) and their maximum potential than just another training or a talking head lecture. We will make you innovate and play with our ECD development kits to really understand why we believe in printed electronics.  You’ll learn why this is the solution for low power visual interface enabling technology.

You will learn about the different ECD properties like electrical and physical features and we’ll compare those with other available technologies. The fundamental idea is to brainstorm together in dynamic and interactive way where this technology could be applied and where there are mutually value adding benefits to all parties.

Training cost: free of charge, Training capacity: min. 10 persons

 

13:00-16:00

Reliability testing by VTT

Ensuring durability and reliability of electronics products have an enormous impact on the sustainability. Thus, reliability assessment is a fundamental topic in successful R&D projects to guarantee designed lifetime and customer satisfaction. The training discusses with topical issues in reliability testing of printed and hybrid electronics including test and verification process and test methodology. The session includes hands-on demonstration for reliability assessment of stretchable electronics.

Training cost: free of charge, Training capacity: max. 20 persons

13:00-17:00

PIC - PrintoCent Industry Cluster Meeting (for members)

PrintoCent Members only with separate invitation and registration.

17:00-18:30

Roundtable discussions

The roundtable discussion begins with 3-4 introductory speeches on the topic. After this a moderated discussion is started where participants are encouraged to discuss and share their insights on the needs, issues and possible solutions to prevailing challenges.

Capacity: max. 20 persons/roundtable

Topics of the roundtable discussions

  • Roundtable 1: Next generation rechargeable batteries – new form factors enabled by roll-to-roll manufacturing technologies
  • Roundtable 2: Food safety in the logistic value chains – hot, cold, bacteria-free
