Wolfgang Käfer

Technical Project Manager

Marquardt is a mechatronic specialist for almost a century now. Beginning with the production of electrical switches, Marquardt became a serious international automotive supplier for control elements, vehicle access and driver authorization, as well as battery management systems. Other areas Marquardt supplies sensors and switches to are the white goods and power tool market, and the off road and agriculture sector. Do printed electronics enable new applications or is it just about cost optimization? At Marquardt, printed electronics are in focus since around ten years, although the first application dates back to the early 2000s. In this speech, you will get an overview about the developments and applications of printed electronics in the past years at Marquardt. Nevertheless, Marquardt uses printed electronics only to a very limited extent, so where do we see opportunities and which obstacles do we have to overcome to enter the ‘slope of enlightenment’ and to reach the ‘plateau of productivity’?

Additive manufacturing processes have today reached the middle of industry. In some industrial
sectors, the “Hype Cycle” [1] is moving into productivity. The first companies have set up "Digital
Warehouses". The digital printing principle makes it possible to realize "System in Package" (SiP) with higher variety, compared to previous technologies. Currently known manufacturing processes for Additive Manufacturing (AM) are described within standards bodies. Additional materials and methods were developed permanently. There are many possible combinations of materials and procedures, which may seem confusing from outside. From an electronics design & manufacturing perspective, there are unanswered questions and a huge variety of complex procedures. Classifying from the perspective of the Application, the user can identify useful tools, methods and materials which are needed for simple or verry complex AME projects. A side effect can be to optimize processes or to identify gaps in the workflow and closing them and to get a first impression of the possible costs or e.g. the CO2 footprint/sustainability effects. The goal of a classification is supporting user, designer, hard- and software vendor taking advantage of the technology and get in discussion! In previous discussions, the “FED Arbeitskreis 3D Elektronik” has coordinated the classification with institutes and industry partners.

This talk presents a rationale for ecodesign portable batteries by re-thinking their life- cycle under an environmentally conscious framework. Through careful device design and advocating for a ‘fit-to-purpose’ approach, the development of these batteries is paired with the application value chain, in such a manner that even the power source end-of-life is redefined according to the use-case scenario. Several examples of these ecodesigned portable power sources will be
presented. Firstly, a paper-based battery commercialized by Fuelium to power portable diagnostic devices. These liquid activated batteries can be fabricated under the same procedures used in the rapid test industry and have shown the ability to power the most relevant features needed in portable medical devices, such as sensors, displays, wireless communications or heating. Then, further battery concepts developed at BCMaterials will be introduced, such as a bio-based battery using laser induced graphene current collectors in a cardboard tape format for smart packaging, as well as different approaches of biodegradable batteries for precision agriculture and environmental monitoring. Developed under this rationale, environmental sustainability has been placed as a core priority to guide the batteries’ conception and materialization, from materials to end-of-life. Hence all materials used as electrodes, electrolytes, or structural components are abundant, non-toxic and renewable; selected to meet the specific end-of-life requirements and endow a safe and ethical manufacturability.

As global climate change and warming have drawn attention to a carbon footprint in ICT, a green foundry for less carbon dioxide emission has been considered especially for manufacturing flexible inexpensive devices with simple functions for edge computing applications. Therefore, a roll-to-roll (R2R) printing-based foundry has been developed as a sustainable high throughput for manufacturing inexpensive and disposable electronic and bioelectronic devices. Here, the R2R gravure printing system will be introduced to show how to manufacture a limitless number of sensor-computer integrated labels for IoT, DoT, VoT, and CoT. Through the R2R printing foundry, displays,processors, wireless modules, and sensors can be all integrated by a continuous in-line printing system by simply changing gravure rolls and electronic inks in the gravure printing system. To demonstrate the concept of the R2R printing foundry, a limitless number of integrated logic gates for developing the label-like IoT, DoT, VoT, and CoT were fabricated via all R2R gravure printing processes with precisely controlled overlay printing registration accuracy, electronic ink transfers, circuit designs, and device passivation. Furthermore, analyzing the hazardous byproducts through the R2R gravure printing-based foundry will be introduced.

Indium tin oxide is widely used in transparent applications such as heated glass, antennas, touch screens or smart windows, but has limitations when it comes to e.g. brittleness and low resistances. Metal mesh structures offer a cheaper alternative for truly flexible and low resistance applications.A self-assembled crack template approach enables a fast R2R production on a large-scale. The metal mesh foil based on PET or PC shows both high transparency and low optical haze.
