Drying furnaces are used to dry the paste prior to firing. The thickness should be measured after drying.

Firing furnace sinters (fuses) particles together.

Belt speed and heater temperature sets the profile.

thickness measurement
Thickness measurement

Profilometer – uses a stylus to trace the thickness profile of a printed line.

electrical measurements
Electrical measurements.

Various methods are used to measure resistance and capacitance. LCR bridge will measure the impedance where a DC source monitor unit will measure the resistance.

resistor trim
Resistor Trim

Uses an infra-red laser to trim through a printed resistor – x,y trim stage.


Depends on mass transport and sintering to fuse into a contiguous film.

Conductors and insulators are both available. Semiconductors can also be used.

Alumina ceramic is commonly used as a substrate.
