Stretchable & Conformable Printed Electronics

Stretchable printed electronics are becoming increasingly relevant in modern technologies such as wearable sensors and soft robotics. Almax-RP Corp. manufactures stretchable circuits that are bendable, pliant and conformable. We print conductive inks, such as silver and carbon, onto elastomeric substrates to create these printed sensors. We can manufacture stretchable bio-sensors by combining stretchable substrates with Read More …

Manufacturing a Reliable Custom Capacitive Switch

What is a Custom Capacitive Switch? A custom capacitive switch senses touch through capacitance changes. When you touch a capacitive switch, the electricity stored in your body interacts with conductive material in the switch. The switch senses the resulting change in capacitance and reacts according to its programming. Capacitive touch technologies are becoming increasingly popular, Read More …

Ag/AgCl (Silver Silver Chloride) Screen Printed Electrodes

Manufacturing Custom Ag/AgCL Electrodes Screen printed electrodes are revolutionizing the way that we collect data and measurements. Ag/AgCl (Silver Silver Chloride) reference electrodes are the industry standard reference electrode for many electrochemical measurements. This is because Ag/AgCl electrodes have a stable electrochemical potential in a variety of different measurement conditions. Almax manufactures custom Ag/AgCl screen Read More …
