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 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 Launches New Range of Force Sensing Potentiometers

Tangio Launches New Range of Force Sensing Potentiometers

VANCOUVER, Canada, Apr 23rd 2018 – Tangio Printed Electronics, a division of Sytek Enterprises Inc., a global leader in Printed Touch Sensing Solutions, announces the launch of its new TPE-500 series Force Sensing Potentiometers (FSP). 

Following the successful launch of its best-in-class TPE-500 series Force Sensing Resistors in 2016, Tangio further expands the range with a new family of Force Sensing Potentiometers (FSP). These innovative and cost effective sensors simultaneously report touch location and variable force thereby enhancing a wide range of human-machine interfaces with intuitive 2D interactivity. Tangio FSP's are easy to integrate, high resolution, low-power, and ideal for a wide range of applications & markets.

Neil Jarvie, Tangio's VP of Business Development commented, “as with our Force Sensing Resistor range, we went back to the drawing board to define the new FSP family. As a result these sensors combine several compelling features not seen in competing products. Thru-mode construction enhances sensitivity & positional accuracy, and the stylish 'dead-front' design incorporates a shine-through window for optional active or passive illumination.” He concluded, “our new FSP’s can be deployed directly into a commercial application or used for evaluation prior to engaging our full custom design and manufacturing service.”

Data sheets and integration guides for TPE-500 series FSP’s are available to download now from www.tangio.ca with sensors available for purchase in the webstore.
