Tangio to Launch Revolutionary fuZion Sensor on November 15th

VANCOUVER, Canada, August 25th 2018 – Tangio Printed Electronics, a division of Sytek Enterprises Inc., a global leader in Printed Touch Sensing Solutions, today announces the simultaneous launch of its revolutionary fuZion sensor at two key industry events in November.

Continuing the philosophy of Affordable-Innovation, Tangio is pleased to announce the launch of its fuZion hybrid sensing technology at the IDTechEx show in Santa Clara California, and the China Hi-Tech Fair in Shenzhen China on November 15th.

FuZion merges two complimentary sensing technologies in a way not previously seen, creating new and exciting HMI possibilities.

Neil Jarvie, Tangio's VP of Business Development commented, “the touch market is demarcated along technology lines, with our competitors typically promoting either resistive or capacitive based products. As the leader in printed touch sensing solutions it seemed obvious for Tangio to combine the best of each in a way that offers seamless integration and enables new and innovative HMI solutions.” He continued, "having shown pre-launch demonstrations to several key OEM's and Tiers we're very excited at the overwhelmingly positive feedback!" He concluded, "and of course with over 30 years manufacturing experience, Tangio is launching fuZion as a ready-to-deploy solution, not a piece of slideware!"

Details of the launch events and where to find Tangio can be found here.

Tangio Collaborates With Local Universities to Drive Real-Time Innovation

Tangio Collaborates With Local Universities to Drive Real-Time Innovation

Any business is only as good as its people, and at Tangio we have an eye on the future by engaging the finest student talent from our local Universities.

We believe Tangio’s approach is refreshingly different. A unique way of working with our undergraduate interns is driving significant real-time benefits for our customers in the printed touch sensing and integrated HMI markets.

Robin Jeffries, Tangio’s CEO stated, “we’ve been working with the University of British Columbia’s science co-op program for several years as part of our undergraduate intern scheme. We’ve honed our team structure to fully integrate our local student talent.”

Mark Graham, Tangio’s Head of Engineering continued, “our student colleagues are in the thick of the action contributing to actual customer projects and delivery of our technology roadmaps, not tucked away in a back room. Our structure and methodology enables each student to function as a full member of the team with the same contribution to innovation & project delivery as our full-time staff.”

Our unique approach to harnessing undergraduate skills is delivering tangible benefits for Tangio’s customers. This extends beyond the “basic” sensor business to solutions such as Tangio’s in-house developed 3D Multi-Touch interface reference design and the upcoming and game-changing fuZion hybrid sensor family.

Mohammad Olyaiy, an undergraduate who recently completed his internship with Tangio stated, “working at Tangio was an incredibly empowering & enjoyable experience. Being fully integrated into the engineering team allowed me to directly influence project direction and content. Interfacing with the marketing and business development departments gave unique insights into the commercial requirements and impact. Although my official internship has ended I am continuing to work for Tangio on a part-time basis.”

The team at Tangio is proud of the mutual benefits our intern program is delivering, and Neil Jarvie, Tangio’s VP of Business Development concludes, “it’s refreshing to be part of an enabling and inspiring management team delivering real progress and commercial solutions in this exciting HMI sensor space.”

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.”
