Pepin provides screen printing services that utilize both conductive and dielectric inks to produce custom flexible circuits, sensing electrodes, membrane switches, TENS electrodes, defibrillation pads and various body worn sensors.

Flex Circuit Printing — The Basics

Our process is unique in that we can handle all aspects of the printing process — from sourcing of the right ink to first article proofs and even manufacturing our own screens in-house. We can also take the lead in sourcing specific inks required to meet impedance and performance requirements for each project. For complex projects, we utilize our 40 years of screen printing expertise that stems from engineering tens of thousands of membrane switches and flex circuits sold into the aerospace, defense and commercial markets.

Some specialty inks we utilize include:

  • Conductive silver-silver chloride
  • Pure silver
  • Carbon
  • Graphite

We can print on a multitude of substrates including:

  • Polyester film (PET)
  • Paper
  • Carbon Loaded Vinyl
  • Foil
  • Poly Films
  • Polyurethanes
  • Textiles
  • Non-woven materials

Printing and Marking Method
Flatbed
Screen
Screen printing (Also known as Silk-Screen Printing) involves the use of a screening material coated with a film. This is known as a stencil.
The design is applied to the stencil. Ink is applied to the stencil. The ink is pressed into the stencil by drawing a scrapper across the stencil, which forces the ink through the stencil. The materials used for the actual screen can be metallic and non-metallic screening.
