Melbs LeMieux | Co-Founder and President of Electroninks Electroninks Inc. provides high-performance, advanced materials that customers use to turn promising ideas into profitable new products. This Austin, TX-based company offers solutions based on its proprietary metal complex particle-free conductive metal inks and are designed for applications in semiconductor packaging, consumer electronics, and medical devices. The company is the first to provide metal complex inks in silver, gold, platinum, nickel, and copper. Based on Electroninks metal-complex chemistries, these materials are often referred to as “particle-free” inks due to their translucent nature. Being particle-free is a paradigm shift in technology compared to conventional nanoparticle inks and pastes that, to date, have been the main option for metallization in printed electronics. This chemistry, inspired by precursors used in vacuum deposition techniques and now built into printed inks, provides product designers and manufacturers of virtually any hardware device an entirely new palette of electronic materials to print high-performance circuitry, accelerating time to market for new innovations, reducing costs, and increasing sustainability in the metallization process. Electroninks currently offers an array of silver, gold and platinum-based inks in their MOD (Methods of Deposition) platform, with others (including nickel and copper) in prototyping phase. These ink technologies generally fall into three product lines: CircuitSeed, CircuitShield and CircuitWrap. These MODs eliminate the need for traditional deposition methods. Electroninks’ MODs simultaneously enhance the production of an array of applications that require high-quality materials at lower costs. From electronic and mobile displays, rigid PCBs, and medical devices to electromagnetic shielding and e-textiles, Electroninks’ solutions meet the needs of a wide range of manufacturers. In addition to bringing standalone ink products to market, Electroninks also delivers total solutions to customers with its line of ink products, including CircuitJet – a small (desktop) prototype additive manufacturing solution for rapid on-demand printed circuit board (PCB) printing and repair. CircuitJet enables customers that need very fast PCB prototyping on up to an 8×10 form factor with a simple “all-in-one” tool that retails for under $5,000 USD. Electroninks’ solutions are additive: they use 3-D printing technology to add layer upon layer of metal ink to create miniaturized circuitry. This manufacturing process reduces costs, waste and decreases production time. The traditional subtractive design and manufacturing process uses more material which generates additional waste, adding to environmental challenges. Now with full production scale availability of its solutions, Electroninks is well-positioned to meet the needs of global commercial customers through its new world-class 30,000-square-foot R&D and production facility in Austin. The company is already serving a select set of commercial customers in the display and semiconductor packaging supply chains, and acting as a key supplier for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), including the U.S. Air Force. All of the company’s products are available for immediate use in high-volume, production scale applications, and can also be customized according to customer specifications as needed.
