To produce printed electronics, organic or metal-containing inks are applied on plastic foils, paper or glass. Drying, curing and sintering are methods required to achieve the desired conductivity or semi-conducting or dielectric properties.

Infrared systems with intelligent control units can be used for this, says infrared bulb maker Heraeus. The company produced a video demonstrating how infrared delivers targeted heat in printed electronics applications.
