Ultra-thin, flexible, lightweight and cost effective is the trend for many of our customers in various industries. We are increasingly confronted with flexible OLED displays, circuits or solar cells that are integrated into everyday equipment, high-performance battery packs or catch phrases such as "Wearables" or "Internet of Things". Flexible electronics are an inherent part of these developments and one of the key technologies of the next decade.
In order to meet these challenges, the electronics industry is replacing conventional substrate materials, like the traditional glass and silicon wafers, by flexible materials such as thin glass, metal foils, and plastic substrates, which are generally referred to as flexible electronics (or flex circuits).
Manz has decades of experience in the development and construction of winding and stacking systems for the production of Li-ion batteries and capacitors. Our subsidiary Manz Italy (formerly Arcotronics) is a worldwide market leader for production lines of capacitors and batteries.
With this expertise we successfully established a Roll-to-Roll (R2R) process platform, which can be integrated in existing processing solutions and widely applied to various industries.
