Printed Antennas

Printing is an additive process – as opposed to the subtractive process of etching and is more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly. To successfully manufacture printed RFID antennas in a large scale, we had to overcome various technical difficulties. We came up with various inventions to the conventional barriers to manufacturing printed antennas:

  • Enhanced conductive ink formula
  • Thickness control mechanism for ink deposition
  • Accelerated curing processes for paper substrate and conductive ink

Screen printing technique is employed to make our antennas. The short turn-around time for making the printing screen enables fast lead time from design concept to mass production. Along with our antenna design service, our customers can enjoy the benefits of fast and convenient custom tag production which is essential to justify their investment in RFID with a faster ROI.

Printed Batteries

Thin and flexible characteristics making BAP labels possible and at low cost

Printed batteries are printed directly onto thin substrates (e.g. paper) so they are far thinner and more flexible than any other batteries. Printed batteries can be conveniently embedded in RFID labels and applied to curved surfaces. Our batteries can be printed in many shapes and sizes, they dried and cured to form solid-state patches of batteries. There are many advantages of solid-state printed batteries.

Our materials are not toxic or harmful. No metal casing or special packaging is required to contain the materials. There is no liquid form of electrolyte. Therefore, our batteries do not leak or explode when subject to impact or heat. Since it does not require special environmental approvals, our printed batteries can be made outside of clean or dry room conditions, which minimize overall production costs. We are positioned to produce BAP RFID labels, with printed antennas and batteries, for the global market at very low costs.
