Konica Minolta makes MEMS inkjet for printed electronics
February 16, 2012 // Peter Clarke
Konica Minolta IJ Technologies Inc., (Tokyo, Japan) has announced that is has developed a silicon MEMS-based inkjet printhead for printed electronics applications. It is due to begin sampling in the second quarter of 2012.
The KM128SNG-MB delivers droplets of 1 picoliter through a network of 128 nozzles with an optimization for the low viscosity inks that are demanded in industrial applications. It provides uniform thin film print thickness of about 100-nm and includes a proprietary drive-per-nozzle control board.
The unit is intended for applications such as OLED display patterning, OLED lighting thin film layer coating, and high-resolution displays for smartphones and similar devices.
Konica Minolta estimates that the printed electronics market, including next-generation flexible displays, should reach 2 trillion yen (about $25 billion) by 2020. Konica Minolta IJ Technologies, Inc.,is a wholly owned subsidiary of Konica Minolta Holdings Inc.
