liquid metal

breakthrough in direct printing electronic methods

recently, it was reported that the scientific research team led by Liu Jing, a researcher at the Institute of physical and chemical technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, developed the technology of directly generating electronic circuits on paper for the first time, and made a desktop 3D automatic printing prototype. After testing, the conductivity and reliability are good, and particularly complex circuits or electronic components can also be printed; At present, it only takes more than ten minutes to print a paper-based circuit board the size of A4 paper

it is reported that up to now, conventional electronic manufacturing can only be completed through time-consuming, consumable and energy consuming processes such as evaporation, sputtering and deposition. The newly emerging printed electronics, like printed words, directly forms conductive lines and patterns on the substrate, which speeds up the transformation of the traditional mode. However, it is also faced with the constraints of ink. It is often necessary to use conductive polymers or add nano particle materials and realize them through high-temperature curing or specific chemical reactions. In this context, the liquid metal printed electronics method has pushed the printed electronics forward by a big step. Its basic concept is: the clamping diameter of the liquid metal round sample: Φ 13~ Φ 40mm; It's ink. If you type it, it will become a circuit. With this equipment and a good program, you can print out the circuit system you need

as a new frontier in the field of electronic manufacturing, liquid metal printing electronics has opened up a convenient and fast way for the direct manufacturing of flexible electronics at room temperature, and StarTech is dedicated to the shortcomings of the longitudinal load (tension) device of the original experimental machine, which is expected to realize the popularization and application of the machine. Moreover, compared with common plastic substrates, electronic paper has the characteristics of low cost, portability, easy degradation, folding, convenient recycling and so on. It is a kind of green, environmental friendly and cheap circuit material

accelerating 3D printing upgrade

and electronic industry innovation

3d printing is a cutting-edge hotspot in the world. However, most of the existing methods can only print the model itself, and it is not easy to meet the device manufacturing requirements including electronic functions. Therefore, the direct printing of liquid metal at room temperature has brought new hope. The application fields of new technologies are extremely broad. The door to the manufacturing of electronic devices for household printers has been opened, which is expected to give birth to a series of electronic engineering and 3D electromechanical printing technologies that go beyond the traditional concept, so as to accelerate the pace of innovation in the electronic industry and manufacturing industry

insiders believe that the technology of liquid metal direct printing electronic circuits has created conditions for personalized manufacturing of electronic components and may affect the development mode of electronic technology in the future. Personalized circuit design method will make the technology have a large application space in electronic engineering, personalized electronic component design and manufacturing, creative design, etc., and promote the popularization of diy electronics. It can be predicted that with the expansion of the field of micro spherical aluminum powder utilization in the future and the gradual reduction of the cost of the printing system, even those without electronic design experience can print their own terminal electronic devices and even assemble electromechanical systems, such as electronic greeting cards, paper integrated circuits, displays, billboards, intelligent fabrics and robots, with the help of the control software preset in the computer in the future, And even photovoltaic cell arrays

in addition, this technology is expected to significantly boost the development space of the electronic paper market. According to the prediction of IDTechEx, a market research and consulting company, the electronic paper market is estimated to be about US $16billion in 2013, which will increase to nearly US $77billion in 2023
