pmTUC was invited by Chespa to present the current developments of printed electronics and especially the T-Paper project at the XXI. Polygraphical Symposium under the headline „The future starts today“ in Opole, Poland. More than 400 visitors enjoyed a mixed program with technical but also economy and politics related talks.
The presentation of pmTUC was given by Dr. Georg C. Schmidt, project leader, with the title „T-Paper – On the way to roll-to-roll printed loudspeaker paper“. Additionally, a special sounding edition of a coffee-set package incorporating T-Paper was presented for the first time in cooperation with Chespa. This so-called „T-Box“ starts to sound while opening the smart package.
We would like to thank the organizers of the symposium for the opportunity to present our developments to so many guests of Chespa!
On September 9, the „Neue Papiermuseum Düren“ was reopened in a completely new building with modern architecture and a freshly designed exhibition. The exhibition presents many details about and around paper – and of course not only history and state-of-the-art but also very innovative applications where paper plays an important role. We are proud to be part of this „Vision“ section of the museum with our T-Paper.
With the help of an interactive installation, all visitors can listen to a T-Paper loudspeaker poster and can experience this pmTUC innovation.
Feel free to have a look to the website of the museum.

While the T-Paper crew at pmTUC is continously developing new printing process technology for the R2R realisation of the sounding and sensing paper, our first application demonstrator – the T-Book 2 – will be presented for the second time to a broad audience. This time, the book will be visible (and of course audible) at the LOPEC – the largest fair and conference for printed electronics which takes place at Messe Munich from March 13-15. The T-Book will be presented at the booth of the organic electronic association (OE-A) within a competition for novel printed electronic devices and demonstrators (only March 14-15).

Where is the sound coming from? Where did you hide the speakers? Sounding paper pages? Impossible!
Just some of the questions we had to answer at Frankfurter Buchmesse last week… After many exciting discussions with many different visitors (publishers, book manufacturers, book sellers, technology scouts, etc.) we can proudly say – our new T-Book 2 has surprised. Despite the heavy busy noise of a huge fare hall surrounding us, the sounding book fascinated everybody. Most important for us, we could catch up many interesting ideas for further improvements and applications.
We would like to thank CPI Deutschland for the great chance to be part of its booth and the warm welcome within the team around Oliver Kranert and Robert Höllein.
Furthermore, we would like to thank the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for financial support. You can find a report on the T-Book on the website of BMBF (in German).
The first demonstrator of the project T-paper will be presented for the first time at Frankfurter Buchmesse. After the great success of the first generation of our T-Book presented in 2015, we are proud to show the second generation to the professional visitors of the fare now.
You can find us exclusively on Thursday, October 12th 2017, at the booth of CPI Deutschland (Hall 4.0, F73).
After publishing the start of our T-paper project, big media interest could be created. Different newspapers and online portals reporting about the paper-based loudspeakers. Yesterday, Deutschlandfunk broadcasted a story about our developments and interviewed project leader Dr. Georg Schmidt. You can listen to the report here.
For the T-paper project we are looking for three scientists interested in supporting our team. You can find the job offers on the website of pmTUC.
pmTUC proudly presents a new research project: Since May 1st 2017, „T-paper“ is running dedicated to the further development of printed loudspeakers on paper webs. The project is funded by BMBF under the framework program „VIP+“ with a budget of more than 1.3 Mio. EUR for three years. More information following soon…
