Imperial Plastic Electronics DTC students visit SPECIFIC

Imperial Plastic Electronics DTC students in the SPECIFIC pilot facility Students from Imperial college's doctoral training centre in plastic electronics recently enjoyed an opportunity to put get their "hands dirty" (with the relevant PPE of course) in a practical session on the pilot scale equipment in the clean room. 

This is the 6th cohort which have visited Swansea University to undertake the "Printing for electronics manufacture" course as part of their doctoral training, but the first to make use of the new facilities at the SPECIFIC pilot facility. The 12 students were split into 3 groups and all had a chance to carry out simple parametric studies screen printing, meyer bar coating and roll to roll blade coating. The exercises were invaluable in providing the hands on confirmation of the classroom lessons of the previous two days and provided some exposure to the reality of manufacturing challenges that mass production brings. Thanks to Pete Greenwood for providing able support on the smart coater and to all the DTC students for their enthusiasm.
