THE WOODLANDS, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - UniPixel, Inc. (
UniPixel has accepted the order under the preferred price and capacity license agreement between the PC OEM and UniPixel as previously announced in December of 2012. UniPixel expects to ship an initial commercial run of InTouch Sensors in the fourth quarter of 2013.
"Our first InTouch Sensors order marks another major milestone in the successful global market introduction of our InTouch sensor technology," said UniPixel President and CEO Reed Killion. "Over the last several months we've been working diligently with Kodak, our licensees and manufacturing partners to qualify our front end and back end processes to ensure we meet customer expectations. We continue to make significant progress with Kodak and other partners in product design, prototyping, capacity build out and qualifying our production processes.
"The multi-million dollar milestone payment UniPixel received under its preferred price and capacity license agreement has helped fund the build-out of InTouch Sensor production lines and allowed us to leverage our PC OEM's world-class resources around supply chain management, operations, engineering and production core competencies."
InTouch Sensors offer the unique advantages of metal mesh touch-sensors based on an additive, roll-to-roll, flexible electronics process as compared to the traditional subtractive ITO-based and subtractive ITO replacement-based touch-sensor solutions. These advantages include higher touch sensitivity, improved touch distinction, better durability, significantly higher conductivity, extensibility to a greater number of sizes and form factors, and faster sensing speeds.
The UniBoss additive manufacturing process is more efficient and sustainable, promising lower production costs contrasted with standard ITO-based touch technology due to lower material costs, fewer steps in the manufacturing process and a more simplified supply chain.
