Insulectro Leverages One Source Distribution for Printed Electronic Materials at IDTechEx


Reading time ( words)

Insulectro will exhibit in booth i22 at IDTechEx’s Printed Electronics World 2016 conference held next week, November 16-17, in Santa Clara, CA at the Convention Center.

Insulectro Printed Electronics offers advanced materials from such leading suppliers such as DuPont, Chromaline, Coveme, and Kodak to sell conductive inks, substrates, and consumables.

Insulectro distributes key DuPont polymer thick film paste products to U.S. customers in the thin film photovoltaic, wearables, capacitive switch, touch screen, RFID smart card, heating and membrane touch switch markets. In addition, Insulectro Printed Electronics distributes carbon conductors and UV dielectrics on behalf of DuPont.

Kevin Miller, Vice President of Sales for Insulectro Printed Electronics, commented, “We are excited to showcase our products at Printed Electronics World. We are a one-source supplier for PE manufacturers with our complete offerings of essential and cutting edge materials. With 10 stocking locations throughout North America, we are where our customers are.

“We developed a strong sales and service model on Insulectro’s PCB-side of our business over a long period of years. That wealth of knowledge transfers readily to printed electronics. Now, Insulectro’s Printed Electronics Division is making a difference in that industry.”

Insulectro also distributes Clarity Optical Films under its own Vistana brand. The Vistana product line occurred when Insulectro purchased the assets of Vistana, Inc.

Insulectro Printed Electronics’ Product Specialist Jeff Parker is excited about the array of conductive inks offered, “DuPont is the predominant manufacturer of silver, copper, carbon, and dielectric inks. Insulectro’s got them all. Whether your application is membrane touch switches or printable heaters, there is an advanced material for your needs. And, in the wearables market, stretchable inks are rewriting the electronics gamebook. In our booth, you’ll see real examples of cutting edge technologies just about to hit the commercial market.

“For example, on display in our booth is a precise robotic soldering machine, made by Apollo Seiko, that controls multiple axis (up to 5), plus temperature, position, and solder volume deposited to a specific location in a static or production line setting. This has not been done in a product setting with long term success.  This capability opens up new avenue for printed flexible circuits enabling opportunities that have not existed previously by introducing soldered connections to flexible printed electronics.”

Product Specialist Dr. David D’Ambra agreed, “You’ll also be one of first to see, first-hand, Komodo Technologies brand-new AIO Smart Sleeve that’s about to hit the market. This is the World’s First activity monitoring compression sleeve with 24/7 monitoring of ECG and EKG functions – a miracle of printed electronics ingenuity.”

Miller added, “There’s lots of excitement this year for Insulectro Printed Electronics. Stop by our booth, i22, at IDTechEx’s Printed Electronics World 2016 and let’s get acquainted. Wherever you are manufacturing printed electronics – Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Southern California, Denver, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Northwest, Northeast or Mid-Atlantic – we are there to service you.”
