Soligie to develop smart packaging and drug delivery patch

Minneapolis, MN - Soligie, a market leader in the design and manufacture of printed electronics, announced today that the Company has been awarded contracts to develop a drug delivery patch and a smart packaging product that utilize Soligie's high-speed roll-to-roll electronics production line. Prototype versions have been delivered and are in testing.
A key objective of printed electronics is to manufacture complex products with multiple materials on a continuous web at speeds for high volume production. Soligie has moved this goal closer to commercial reality using proprietary processes developed on Soligie's roll-to-roll production line.
"We are excited to be shipping medical patch and smart packaging components to customers who are leaders in their respective industries," said Matt Timm, President of Soligie. "This type of progress is essential for the printed electronics industry to achieve the game-changing results expected by analysts."
These products utilize numerous conductive silver and silver/silver-chloride inks as well as carbon-based resistors, dielectric materials and vias, all to be manufactured in a single pass on a continuous web at high speeds. Timm further commented, "These contract wins are indicative of the value that Soligie brings to those companies that seek a manufacturing partner for printed electronics. In the future, through our network of partnerships and strategic alliances, we will offer manufacturing and design services for products that also contain displays, memory, sensors, batteries and ultimately printed transistors and logic."
Soligie is the leading company to utilize high speed manufacturing to produce printed electronics with a variety of conductive, resistive and proprietary materials on flexible substrates such as PET, paper and foil. The Company is on the cutting edge of a new industry that will enable production of electronic components using high speed, roll-to-roll processes. Soligie offers a full range of services from concept design, circuit design, design for manufacturing and final volume production, and currently serves the medical device, smart packaging, RFID and flexible interconnect markets. Through the combined use of emergent materials and proprietary manufacturing processes, electronics components such as memory, sensors, displays and batteries will soon be integrated into applications on thin flexible substrates. Soligie is also investing in the development of processes for printed thin-film transistors that can be used in products such as smart labels, medical patches and chipless RFID tags. Soligie is located in Savage, Minnesota and is owned by the Taylor Corporation.
