TactoTek Partner with Nissha
Nissha Printing Co Ltd, a leading manufacturer of In-Mold Decoration parts for automotive and home appliance OEMs, has announced that they are partnering with TactoTek, a leading producer of 3D Injection Molded Structural Electronics, to collaboratively design and mass produce automotive and home appliance control panels
David Pugh spoke with Ms. Junko Yanagitani (manager/engineer), Ms. Hiroko Shimizu (strategy planning manager) and Mr Hideaki Akahane (sales developing manager) on the future of gas sensing and FIS technology.
Infi-tex emerged after Peratech Ltd entered administration. Infi-tex adopted intellectual property from Peratech around using QTC™ (Quantum tunnelling composite) materials in 'Soft-Switch' applications. Infi-tex is now continuing to explore opportunities around this technology.
Nissha succeeds in developing new conductive material
Silver nanowire ink expected to be a conductive material of the next generation
C3nano was founded in 2010, as a spin out from Prof Zhenan Bao's group at Stanford university. C3Nano has developed solution-coated, transparent, conductive materials that compete directly with indium tin oxide (ITO) and claim to have the highest conductivity with the best optical quality in the market due to their IP on AgNWs.
Highlights from the Printed Electronics Europe event in Berlin
The 11th annual IDTechEx Printed Electronics event took place in Berlin last week. The conference and tradeshow looked at a diverse range of technologies - both within printed electronics and also related technologies, such as Graphene, Wearable Technology, the Internet of Things, Energy Harvesting and 3D Printing, reflecting the broad opportunities for the technology.
