Job Description

You’re the Master Printer of flexible printed batteries. You have a deep understanding of how screen printing works, and a gut feel for how to combine squeegees, screens and set up to deliver a replicable process for high quality. You're data-driven based on experiments; and you insist on documenting and codifying practices. You know the suppliers and manufacturers of consumables and equipment. Your focus will be the optimization of the battery printing process: how to get the highest deposition with the lowest roughness, how to optimize the drying process; how to scale it up to production printers and ovens.
