Quad Industries

Printed Electronics

Quad Industries is exploring the field of organic and printed electronics, which is a platform technology based on the combination of light-weight, flexible materials and cost-effective production processes. Printed electronics is a set of printing methods used to create electrical devices on various substrates such as flexible films or paper. This technology combines printing of conductive inks with automatic components assembly to create electrical devices.


Quad Industries has in-house competence in the area of:

  1. screen-printing conductive inks such as silver inks, carbon inks and translucent polymers on flexible films.
  2. automatic smd assembly of electronic components on flexible substrates


Possible applications are:

  • Printed sensors (physical sensors for pressure, temperature)
  • Smart objects (smart cards, smart packages, smart labels)
  • Printed memories
  • Printed batteries
  • Smart textiles (active clothing)
  • Lighting (OLED and electroluminescent products)
  • Flexible displays


Disposable temperature logging label


NXP and Enfucell have jointly developed a disposable temperature logging foil demonstrator. This solution supports logging functionality similar to that of a reusable logger, however the format and product unit cost now enable logging at the item level. Each individual foil contains NXP’s NHS3100 integrated chip, Enfucell’s printed battery and an NFC antenna.


Quad Industries manufactured the label in it’s electronic assembly facilities. The carrier of the label is thin PET plastic foil. The connecting surfaces and the NFC antenna are screenprinted on this flexible substrate. The chip is bonded to the foil and the battery is built on the foil.

The label is a hybrid system, based on the integration of different functions on a flexible foil and incorporates a combination of different technology platforms. These include:

- Printed electronics technology: that enables low-cost, large scale production of the interconnection, NFC antenna and a printed battery

- Silicon based technology that employs a miniaturized integrated sensor enabling ultralow power consumption as well as highly precise temperature registration


Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to know more about the possibilities of hybrid systems for your specific application.
