Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating

HQ Country
United Kingdom
The Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC) is dedicated to researching printing and coating as a manufacturing process. WCPC undertakes research on all aspects of printing and coating and has a core activity on printing for electronics manufacture. Its international reputation and expertise has led to £3M investment in all printing processes in clean room conditions. This unique facility allows electronic fabrication by flexo, gravure, inkjet, screen and offset lithography to be carried out on sheet or reel. Manufacturing capabilities are matched to state of the art metrology for rheology, material properties, surface topography and electronic characterisation. WCPC is currently a partner in a number of TSB, EPSRC and FP7 projects for electronic manufacture by printing. Further details are available at www.swan.ac.uk/printing
