A big step forward in the manufacture of 3D-printed circuit boards

CORDIS, the European Commission’s primary public repository and portal to disseminate information on all European Union funded research projects, spotted a big step forward in the manufacture of 3D-printed circuit boards thanks to financial and technical support received under the EU-funded SmartEEs2 project. Within SmartEEs2, InnovationLab and its partner, ISRA, have developed a manufacturing process for copper-based solderable circuits. The circuits are screen printed and are compatible with conventional reflow processes. The advantages of producing 3D-printed electronics include the absence of toxic etchants and the ability to complete the process at comparatively low temperatures (about 150 ℃) that significantly reduces energy consumption. The process also helps reduce material consumption – and consequently waste – since the substrates used in additive PCB manufacturing are up to 15 times thinner than those used in conventional processes.

The SmartEEs Application Experiment SMART WORKWEAR

The SmartEEs application experiment Smart WORKWEAR helped CP ALUART to scale up the manufacturing of smart shirt SMART WORKWEAR measures heart rate and body core temperature.  Look at the solution for high temperature or moisture environments for outdoor and industrial workers based on flexible electronics and discover all involved organizations (C.P. Aluart, TNO, TITERA, EBN and IPN) and their capabilities on Smartees Ecosystem.

SmartEEs2 – 6th Webinar

The SmartEEs 2 project intends to create a unique digitalization experience providing experimentation, testing or support to manufacturing. To achieve this, the SmartEEs consortium is working with the purpose of providing ICs with all the skills required to utilize and experiment with technologies associated with the FWE field, by making available training materials and activities to improve and promote skills and education in FWE technologies for society and companies. As part of this objective, a series of webinars on several FWE topics has been made accessible to interested parties, with the final webinar, on June 2nd, focusing on technologies available and related to the development of e-textiles and reliability texting.

The European Smart Textile

Join us on 31 May and 1 June in Italy for the final networking event of the European Smart Textiles Masterclass.

This unique networking and co-creation event will bring together 100 leading industry innovators and tech developers from all over Europe. It concludes the 15-month learning journey of the European Masterclass in Smart Textiles Innovation organised by the Textile ETP. The event will feature keynote speeches from Smart Textiles Innovation Leaders, co-creation sessions around 3 concrete Smart Textiles market challenges and extensive networking, and a small-scale exhibition.

We would like to invite you to directly book the conference & accommodation package with the conference hotel: https://www.hilton.com/en/attend-my-event/final-conference-smart-textiles/ Registration are on first come, first served basis and once we reach 100 participants we will close registration to ensure smooth organisation of the event. Therefore don’t wait before securing your place.

Here you will find the programme and all organisational info.
