PragmatIC’s recent prototyping activities have validated a number of highly scalable applications, working with customers that are among the largest global companies in their respective fields. Previously announced projects include Hallmark-subsidiary Tigerprint in greeting cards and the world’s largest integrated commercial banknote printer De La Rue in security labels.
Selected projects are now moving into pilot-scale commercial production, and will be publicly rolled out early next year.The unrivalled density achievable by PragmatIC’s patented approach to printed logic has enabled a rapid transition to low cost commercial production. The pilot line is currently producing more than 10,000 flexible logic circuits per month, and is expected to scale to a capacity of over 10 million per annum during 2013.
In addition to commercial production, the pilot line serves as a reference platform for PragmatIC’s licensees, and as a test-bed for on-going improvements in device design, process optimisation and circuit functionality
Scott White, Chief Executive Officer of PragmatIC Printing, stated: “We are very pleased to meet this significant milestone in line with our target schedule announced earlier this year. This demonstrates the maturity and pragmatism of our technology approach, and provides a solid basis to further develop our activities with both licensees and end customers.”
