Tangio & Natgraph Collaborate to Drive Further Manufacturing Improvements in Printed Electronics

Tangio & Natgraph Collaborate to Drive Further Manufacturing Improvements in Printed Electronics

VANCOUVER, Canada, Mar 26th 2018 – Tangio Printed Electronics, a division of Sytek Enterprises Inc., a global leader in Printed Touch Sensing Solutions, extends its leadership in printed electronics with the installation of Natgraph’s latest dryer technology.

Over three decades experience has taught us that producing best-in-class printed force sensors is far from simple. Even minor variables in the printing and drying processes can seriously impact outgoing quality. The stark reality is many competing products in today's market are not fit for real-world applications, some not even compliant with their own data sheets!

Tangio’s leadership in printed force sensors is realised through strategic collaboration with the world’s foremost materials and process vendors. This is showcased in our relationship with UK based Natgraph, Europe's largest manufacturer of conveyor dryers utilising forced air, IR and UV radiation. Tangio is therefore delighted to announce the recent installation of a Natgraph Air Force Combination UV dryer at its Headquarter and R&D facility in Vancouver, Canada. 

Robin Jeffries, CEO at Tangio commented, “Natgraph’s dryer technology is a significant contributing factor in our ability to drive innovation, quality and yield in printed force and capacitive sensors. Their “PEAK” proposition is fully aligned with Tangio’s priorities and values. The combination of technologies in their dryers enables our engineers to successfully process the latest developments in functional and conductive inks. Tangio's global leadership in solutions such as active-matrix 3D touch sensors wouldn't be possible without this expertise.”

Douglas Gray, Sales Director at Natgraph stated, “Natgraph considers printed electronics to be a key strategic market that is well suited to our product and company capabilities. It is therefore very pleasing to have recently supplied a high-performance dryer to Tangio Printed Electronics in Canada. Tangio’s focus on functional printing and in particular Force Sensitive Resistors requires considerable precision and control from the drying process and this is a central part of the Natgraph proposition. In functional printing the drying aspect of the screen printing process comes to the fore. If the drying of the printed features is lacking then there be considerable product variation, reduced yields and added cost. As a market innovator Tangio fully recognised this and the importance of our PEAK proposition.”

Robin added, “as a center of excellence for printed electronics in North America we are happy to collaborate with customers and strategic partners who can benefit from our process expertise, including the use of our Natgraph dryer for trials and development.”

Tangio Strengthens Presence in Mainland China

VANCOUVER, Canada, Nov 27th 2017 – Tangio Printed Electronics, a division of Sytek Enterprises Inc., a global leader in Printed Touch Sensing Solutions, today announces further collaboration with its existing representative partner Assel Ltd. in mainland China.

Following a successful first year in partnership resulting in significant new sales revenue, pipelined opportunities and brand awareness, Tangio will strengthen its presence in east central China with the opening of Assel’s new sales office in Shanghai. This will further enhance customer support and reduce adoption times in the region for Tangio’s best-in-class printed force and touch sensing solutions.

Louis Tan, Tangio’s Business Development Manager (APAC) stated, “we are experiencing high demand for the TPE-500 range of force sensing resistors, our revolutionary 3D multi-touch resistive sensors, and newly introduced capacitive solutions in the Shanghai area. Assel’s local presence will help us service this need in real-time”.

KH Hsiah, Vice President at Assel added, “2017 has been an exciting year for Assel and Tangio in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Adding local support in Shanghai is a demonstration of our confidence in the region and in Tangio’s technology & products. We look forward to continued success in the coming year”.

Assel becomes Tangio’s largest technical sales partner in Greater China with offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Taipei.
