Research and Markets: Short Course: Roll to Roll Manufacturing Processes Includes Material Tracking, Tension Control, Minimizing Handling Defects and Controlling Mid Process Influences

DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 16, 2012Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2knh7b/short_course_roll) has announced the addition of the "Short Course: Roll to Roll Manufacturing Processes" report to their offering.

Flexible and deformable electronics are emerging as the next great leap in the electronics revolution. This half day short course will focus on the materials, processes and tooling by which these devices are fabricated roll-to-roll (R2R). The manufacturing challenges facing industry will be outlined. Future trends in flexible and deformable technology will be emphasized throughout. Applications of flexible devices to medicine, information technology and civil infrastructure will be included. Recent accomplishments with advancements with R2R flexible glass and integration web handling will be presented.

Ultra-slim flexible glass substrates =200 µm thick provide several benefits that enable high-quality, high-performance, thin, and light-weight electronic devices. For example, glass offers inherent barrier properties, low surface roughness, processing chemical compatibility, and thermal and dimensional stability. Recent demonstrations have highlighted the benefits of flexible glass-not only for electronic device performance-but also for roll-to-roll and sheet-based device fabrication as well. This section of the short course will focus on: 1) recent flexible glass progress for electronic applications, 2) methods to maintain mechanical reliability, and 3) adjacent ecosystem technologies required to fully optimize high-performance flexible electronic devices.
