Wilmington, MA — November 15 , 2017 - XENON Corporation, the world leader in Pulsed Light solutions, has announced the unveiling of CENTAURI: the first comprehensive and truly flexible and scalable end-to-end process and material development platform incorporating R2R sintering at Santa Clara PE-USA .
XENON has developed innovative applications for Pulsed Light technology for over 50 years. The company works with engineers from around the world to discover and perfect new and emerging applications of Pulsed Light, including Printed Electronics. CENTAURI , its latest offering, is the achievement of a joint venture between XENON and Carpe Diem Technologies, the industry-leading roll-to-roll nanotechnology developer and integrator.
“We knew from day-one that Carpe Diem was the right company to assist us in this important undertaking,” declared Dr. Saad Ahmed, Chief Engineer of XENON. “The fact that they provide an “open” modular tool set for the development and production of nano-enabled printed electronics made them the best possible partner for us,” Sa ad went on the say.
CENTAURI is a 6-inch web solution that allows for ultimate flexibility in modification for custom requirements and processes. This unique solution integrates web handling, Carpe Diem gravure roll coater/printer with Harper anilox roll, Vetaphone Corona surface treatment, Adphos NIR Drying and XENON’s proven Photonic Sintering S-2200 System.
John Berg, CEO of Carpe Diem remarked, “With all that XENON brings to the table, it’s no surprise that together we were able to create the most flexible and comprehensive end-to-end solution for PE sintering that provides users with the starting point for virtually any PE application they wish to explore and ultimately perfect.”
Staff from XENON and Carpe Diem will be on hand at Santa Clara PE-US A to demonstrate how CENTAURI can print silver ink onto a polymer substrate. They will also show attendees how a completely integrated Human Machine Interface can be used with the new PulseCAD simulation tool for thermal modeling of the sintering process. These demonstrations will confirm that CENTAURI is the first solution of its type to bring together all of the pieces of the R2R sintering puzzle.
To see this one-of-a-kind solution, please visit Booth A18 or attend the XENON Conference Presentation that will be made by XENON’s Chief Engineer, Dr. Saad Ahmed.
XENON is the world’s leader in Pulsed Light technology for Printed Electronics. XENON's S-Series systems are used to rapidly sinter conductive metallic inks at room temperature, making it possible to print on heat sensitive flexible substrates such as PET and paper at high speeds. XENON also utilizes its unique lamp manufacturing capability and patented dual pulse technolog y for sintering copper up to 60 microns thick. With over 50 years of experience in Pulsed Light technology, XENON has thousands of systems operating on industrial production lines worldwide. To learn more visit www.xenoncorp.com
