Returning as an exhibitor, GM Functionals will be on hand to discuss its innovative equipment for the manufacture of high-quality printed electronics. The Danish company is leveraging its 40+ years of expertise in developing converting technology for printed labels and flexible packaging to offer a full range of advanced equipment for coating and curing functional materials. Each platform can be built to suit lab use, pilot projects, or full-scale production scenarios, meaning GM can support customers throughout the whole process.

“Printed electronics are becoming a big part of what we do at GM, and we are fully committed to creating innovative and sustainable solutions, as we continue to push the boundaries in this fast-moving field,” 


states CCO Michael Andersen, who will be at LOPEC 2024 together with CTO Johan Nehammer and Technical Sales Manager Tobias Stubhan.

 “At GM Functionals, we offer complete solutions for our customers’ ambitions, with everything under one roof to guarantee the best design, quality, and functionality.”  


Among the solutions in focus will be the FlexiCoat roll-to-roll platform, where every module is fully integrated and operates as one seamless workflow. The modular and multifunctional device is equally adept in both research and manufacturing settings, serving as the perfect bridge between laboratory experimentation and factory operations. Every system, including each component, is built at the company’s facility in Denmark to fit the exact requirements, giving customers a great competitive advantage in the realm of functional materials. 

With digital control of all main functions, such as slot-die position (with 1-micron accuracy), embedded ink delivery system, temperature regulation, accurate tension, and speed, the FlexiCoat offers full oversight of the entire coating process. It can be combined with an optional inline inspection system and digital data export giving real-time feedback and full transparency when changing production parameters. This feature also enables comprehensive documentation of quality standards.

“This is an incredibly exciting sector and we are looking forward to presenting our solutions at LOPEC 2024, which has clearly become a key platform for the printed electronics industry,” 


concludes Michael Andersen.

 “GM Functionals is well placed to deliver bespoke systems that can handle even the most sensitive materials with extreme accuracy and we invite visitors to come and discuss their challenges and needs with the team.”
