One of the most important advantages of additive manufacturing is its ability to produce prototypes much faster than older methods. What used to take weeks and months now can be done in a matter of days or even hours.
Voltera Inc. is successfully developing desktop printing solutions for PCBs. The winner of the CPES2017 Commercialization Award from the Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (CPEIA), Voltera Inc.’s Voltera V-One dispenses solder paste, conductive ink and reflowing components, dramatically reducing prototyping time for PCBs to days or even hours.
“With more than 500 units shipped to 50 countries, Voltera is already beginning to revolutionize the circuit board prototyping business for sectors ranging from automotive to telecom and consumer electronics,” said Peter Kallai, CPEIA’s executive director, said in presen ting the CPES2017 award. “There are only a few companies in this space in the world.”
