AstroNova Partners With SPF for Flex Tech


Reading time ( words)

AstroNova has partnered with SPF, a technical consultancy supporting printing and packaging industries to facilitate an easy, cost-effective digital printing method for producing flexible circuits by combining AstroNova’s QuickLabel and SPF’s Metallograph technologies.

QuickLabel manufactures and distributes thermal transfer printing systems for durable labels into diverse industries, many of which are now investing in flexible electronics. These printers are suited for SPF’s Metallograph, especially for multilayer printed electronics.

“We are excited to partner with QuickLabel, who has deep experience manufacturing printed circuit boards and supporting RFID applications, and has expertise with primary Metallograph applications,” said Dene Taylor, president of SPF. “As a result of our partnership, QuickLabel will be the first narrow web, full system provider to the flexible electronics industry.”

“Our new partnership with SPF expands our potential opportunities with flexible printed circuits technology,” said Michael Natalizia, AstroNova’s CTO and vice president of Strategic Technical Alliances. “We look forward to leveraging our full complement of thermal transfer components and the reliability and print quality of QuickLabel’s thermal transfer platform to grow with SPF in this exciting industry.”

The QLS-4100 XE multilayer roll-to-roll printer with Metallograph ribbons is a productive single pass output device. This new technology from QuickLabel and SPF brings together the necessary elements of devices, inks, substrates, print quality, ribbon saver, and application expertise.

The new machine will be exhibited for the first time at this year’s edition of Printed Electronics in Santa Clara, California.
