PV Nano Cell Wins IDTechEx Award for Best Development in Materials for 3D Printing

Company recognized for its portfolio of innovative nanometric conductive inks, enabling the mass production of printed electronics

MIGDAL HA'EMEK, Israel, Nov. 19, 2015 -- PV Nano Cell, an innovative nanometric conductive digital inks producer, today announced that it won the IDTechEx award for Best Development in Materials for 3D Printing. The award was presented at IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA 2015, the world's biggest event focused on the commercialization of printed, organic and flexible electronics. PV Nano Cell was recognized for its Sicrys portfolio of single-crystal, nanometric, metal-based conductive inks that have been uniquely developed to enable the mass production of digitally printed electronics, which is critical to the growth of the industry.


"We are honored to receive this award from such an influential, high-profile organization, being recognized for the hard work that our team pours into developing our unique inks," said Fernando de la Vega, Ph.D., founder and CEO of PV Nano Cell. "In order for the printed electronics industry to grow as anticipated, cost-efficient inks that enable mass production digital inkjet printing are necessary. We work with manufacturers of printed electronics including printed circuit boards, antennas and others to enable significant technological advancements."

With Sicrys inks, printed electronics and 3D printed electronics can be made with less material and increased efficiency, reducing costs and increasing design flexibility. For example, the multiple antennas found in cellphones today can be printed directly onto the phone case using Sicrys conductive inks, reducing the size, weight and parts necessary to produce cellphones. SicrysTM inks allow for printing on flexible substrates, such as plastic, fabric or even paper.

IDTechEx is an organization that provides independent market research, business intelligence and events on emerging technologies. PV Nano Cell's award was presented on November 18 at the IDTechEx award ceremony at the conference in Santa Clara, California.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
