Novacentrix is a manufacturer of metalic injet inks.
They also manufacture a tool to sinter the ink to a low melting point substrate like PET, to make a fully conductive circuit without damaging the substrate. If I were building capacitors form layers of metal and Pet plastic, I bet I would have to use their product or something very much like it.

Here is a link to the company website.

Excellent find.

This would indeed be a better way to print conductors. I once saw a demonstration of this or a similar one, where my name was printed on the back of by business carrd, was heated slightly, and we had a solid conductor!

NovaCentrix, based in Austin, TX, USA, manufactures the PulseForge line of processing tools, which process the conductive inks to full conductivity in milliseconds, including metallic and non-metallic inks and thin films, and can be fully integrated with new or existing roll-to-roll and conveyor production lines at speeds as high as 300 meters per minute. The systems meet or exceed oven performance in a fraction of the time and enable the use of challenging low temperature substrates including PET and paper.

Fun mention of ultra capacitors and the machine is designed for production, including roll to roll, not just testing.

“It is exciting to play a part in taking new technologies to commercialization,” said Farnsworth. “What we are experiencing, including at the event in San Jose, is a shift in market emphasis from concept to product. Though NovaCentrix regularly meets with companies new to printed electronics, we are increasingly engaged by companies well beyond the concept phase. I can say that a lot of activity is quietly happening behind the scenes inside our customers’ organizations.

Great find ccmcmm1, it's topics like this you can miss if you go absentee for just a few days.

It's very unfortunate a topic like this falls off the radar so quick due so many off topic kook topics started by the completely out of control unsupervised spam crowd.

Anyway well done ccmcmml and thanks to Capman and wasmaba for shaking the dust off this one.
