The Pure Additive™ processing developed by Elephantech takes an entirely different approach, combining inkjet printing and electroless copper plating technologies to print metal nanoparticles only where necessary for the circuit formulation and growing the metals on top. This new manufacturing method comes with the following advantages:
Shortened lead time and reduction in total cost
- Standard specifications can be shipped in as little as 3 days from data submission, greatly supporting product development. Revisions to the design can also be carried out with digital processing alone.
- Shortened manufacturing process allows swift delivery for mass production.
- Greatly reduces cost, from development to mass production.
- Our mass production facility in Nagoya allows us to be fully prepared for large-scale mass produciton.
This manufacturing method consists of inkjet-printing silver nano-ink onto the substrate before electroless copper plating is applied to form the circuit.
By reducing the amount of metal, liquid waste and man-hours, we can lessen manufacturing costs and shorten the lead time.
