The award was presented during the 2017 TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo in Washington, DC, the result of the Starlight platform’s modular approach to additive manufacturing. The system enables large area deposition of functional and decorative materials on a variety of cut-sheet, flexible, porous or rigid substrates. It is also scalable for roll-to-roll production.
SFI is exhibiting the Starlight system throughout SID Display Week 2017 in Los Angeles, May 23-25.
“The award represents everything SFI has been working towards in bringing an additive manufacturing prototyping and production system to the growing market of functional printing,” Peter Hessney, SFI’s president, noted.
SFI’s Starlight system also was a recent recipient of the Flexi Award presented by the FlexTech Alliance, which noted that the system’s modularity and scalability puts it in a position to easily integrate with silicon components, providing an efficient hybrid manufacturing system to rapidly produce new devices.
