Konrad Glowacki and Pawel Szczurek from Sinterit at "3D Printing Europe", part of the IDTechEx Show! Sinterit is a start-up that are building a 3D printer that uses SLS (Selective Laser Sintering), shipping units from December 2015. SLS stands for Selective Laser Sintering: this means spreading layers of nylon 12 powder and sinter nylon particles together using a laser. The technology Sinterit uses is the next step in 3D printing as it makes possible to print objects that were difficult or impossible to be printed with the Fused Deposition Modeling technique.

Helioenergia showing their SilverCon nano silver powder and pastes for printed electronics, that can be applied by screen-printing, off-set or stamp. Helioenergia is a Polish company, which is a manufacturer of SilverCon paste. Helioenergia mainly focus on the technology of conducting paste, based on silver nanoparticles. SilverCon pastes and inks characterize in low cure temperature, elevated level of elecrtic and thermal conduction. They have also achieved film-thickness of 0.5-5µm. Those advantages allow variety of appliance of paste and inks in procuring layers in printed electronics and in very sensitive elastic electronics (foils and plastics).

NovaCentrix is focused on technologies and materials to enable manufacturing in Printed Electronics. The PulseForge® photonic curing tools process high-temperature materials on low-temperature substrates. Applications include drying, sintering, annealing, or reacting metallic, non-metallic, and semiconductor inks, without damaging temperature sensitive substrates such as foils and plastics. With processing times of only milliseconds, surface depositions can be heated to melting or crystallization temperatures without damaging low temperature substrates. The very short processing times of the PulseForge® tools allow for high-speed processing rates in a roll-to-roll production format at speeds approaching 100 meters per minute.
