2014 Symposium provided premier education for the printed electronics community
The 2014 SGIA/FlexTech Printed Electronics Symposium jumpstarted the week of the SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, October 22–24). Beginning Tuesday before the show opened, attendees kicked off their industry education a day early.
"This year's Printed Electronics Symposium brought many experts and colleagues in the printed electronics industry with the widest diversity of participation the Symposium has ever seen in all my years being involved with the group," said Ed Cook, President of ECI Screenprint and 2014 Symposium attendee. "Having attendees and presenters from a wide variety of industry sectors, technology providers, material manufacturers, as well as the co-location with FlexTech put on a very well-rounded and in-depth program."
The two-day Symposium featured presentations unlike any other in the industry, tailored specifically to the printed and flexible electronics niche. Attendees heard about topics including:
Screen printing finer and higher aspect ratio traces
Inkjet technology and solutions for printed electronics
UV-LED screen inks
Flexible LCDs and e-writers in consumer electronics
Improving profit margins
