Creative Materials provides prototyping services for printed electronics to demonstrate proofs of concept and for short production runs. Our prototyping services can shorten your product development cycle and time-to-market by providing focused project consultation.
Our prototyping services include providing the best product formulations for your project, drawing from our line of standard products or developing custom formulations as required. In addition, we will make recommendations for the design concept, create artwork, provide project oversight, and manage printing based on your exact specifications. Our project team will work closely with your design engineer throughout the prototyping process and can often make final adjustments to formulations in real time based on testing during print runs.
Our years of experience with advanced conductive materials, adhesives, inks, and coatings gives us the unique qualifications to provide prototyping support across a range of industries, including:
The prototyping process begins with a customer's inquiry and a drawing. Our experienced staff will help establish the project requirements, including the substrate material, electrical resistance requirements, and the application environment, (e.g. temperature, chemical resistance, flexibility, etc.), as well as the customer's design of experiments (DOE) criteria. With the project requirements established, Creative Materials can turn around proposals for complex projects in a week or two, or in less time for simpler projects.
