Development of roll-to-roll printed inverted organic solar cells
Solution: Eni is developing photovoltaic cells, modules and panels based on organic materials and or polymer to reduce the cost of producing electricity from solar resources. VTT is Eni’s research partner in developing fully roll-to-roll printed inverted organic solar cells based on Eni’s materials.
Customer: Orion Diagnostica
Challenge: Transition from the old swab and reagent bottle-based methods of hygiene monitoring systems to a new-generation, fast and easy-to-use integrated test device which is produced by printing reagents on a textile.
Solution: Clean Card® PRO is a new-generation hygiene test for monitoring the effectiveness of cleaning surfaces that come into contact with food. The test detects protein residues, the presence of which indicates inadequate cleaning. VTT acted as a partner in product development, ramp-up production, and technology transfer of the production process.
Verification of the roll-to-roll processability of a new material
Solution: Optitune offers a revolutionary coating technology for cost-effective and environmentally friendly light management solutions for solar, touchscreen, electronics and construction industries. Processability of Optitune's new hard-coating material has been verified in VTT's R2R environment.
New process control unit verification
Solution: Focalspec has developed a new type of on-line topography measurement system for the monitoring and control of printed electronics production. The system is based on novel Lateral Chromatic Imaging technology. The first pilot system has been installed in the VTT MAXI R2R pilot line to gain practical information and experience on measurement needs for various types of materials, printed functionalities and processes.
New solutions for printed electronics measurement and control
Solution: Together with VTT, Offcode has developed the ARCOS21 on-line system for registration and quality-measurements. VTT's MAXI line has been used for testing and demonstrating the system's capability to detect details in the range of 10µm and registration accuracy close to 20µm.
Coatema, manufacturer of high-performance coating and laminating production lines, utilises Offcode's system in their new machines.
Asahi Kasei's high-accuracy Gravure unit performance has been verified in the MAXI line.
