Tangio Launches fuZion Hybrid Sensing Technology

Tangio Launches fuZion Hybrid Sensing Technology

VANCOUVER, Canada, November 15th 2018 – Tangio Printed Electronics, a division of Sytek Enterprises Inc., a global leader in Printed Touch Sensing Solutions, today announces the launch of its much anticipated fuZion hybrid sensing technology.

This innovative new touch sensing solution was launched at back-to-back events at the China Hi-Tech Fair in Shenzhen, China and the IDTechEx Show in Santa Clara, USA.

fuZion combines the best features of two highly proven touch technologies, integrating them into a single seamless solution, thereby enabling an entirely new dimension of HMI (Human-Machine-Interface).

Neil Jarvie, Tangio's VP of Business Development stated, "fuZion is unique in that our engineers have developed a single sensor and single electronic interface optimised to deliver the best of Capacitive and Resistive sensing." He continued, "the ability to detect presence and approach combined with variable force will drive the next level of HMI innovation in multiple applications." He concluded, "as the global leader in printed touch sensing technologies, we're delighted to deliver yet another world-class solution to market."

Tangio Announces Price Reductions for its TPE-500 Force Sensing Resistors

Tangio Announces Price Reductions for its TPE-500 Force Sensing Resistors

VANCOUVER, Canada, August 2nd 2018 – Tangio Printed Electronics, a division of Sytek Enterprises Inc., a global leader in Printed Touch Sensing Solutions, today announces price reductions for its best-in-class TPE-500 series Force Sensing Resistor range.

Following its philosophies of continuous-improvement and affordable-innovation, Tangio is pleased to announce the release of a revised price list for its standard range of Force Sensing Resistors. This reaffirms Tangio’s technical and commercial leadership in the field.

Neil Jarvie, Tangio's VP of Business Development commented, “it’s not good enough to be the technical leader in the printed touch sensing market. The stark reality is many customer applications are very cost sensitive, so we're leveraging over 30 years experience to deploy materials, process & assembly improvements that increase yield and lower costs.” He continued, “through intelligent forecasting and batch manufacturing techniques we’ve been able to apply reductions across the entire price list so even low volume customers will benefit.” He concluded, “in certain device / quantity combinations we’ve been able to reduce prices by circa 50% versus our previous standard price list. This positions Tangio as the clear value leader in the market.”

New pricing is valid for orders received by Tangio or an approved Representative from August 3rd 2018 and is applicable to standard TPE-500 series FSR sensors.

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.”
