Dr. Ian Tevis, Co-founder and Chief Technical Officer of SAFI-Tech will be traveling to a number of events this fall where he will present on Liquital™, his company’s patent-pending technology that solders without using heat. The SAFI-Tech team is currently working on two manufacturing applications of its Liquital™ product: no-heat soldering for flexible electronics and 3-D metal printing for multi-material additive manufacturing.
Tevis said he is excited to get the word out to a broader audience on “What supercooled liquid metal can do for electronics manufacturing!”
Fall events include:
- Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge – Global Summit October 26-27, Le Centquatre, Paris
- SAFI-Tech has been selected as a New Materials track finalist in the 2017 challenge. At the #HTSummit, the company will have the opportunity to compete for prizes, meet with industrial leaders and investors, showcase its product and pitch in front of a curated audience.
- IDTechEx! Printed Electronics USA – November 16, Santa Clara, California
Dr. Tevis will be speaking in November at the world’s largest event on printed and flexible electronics. His presentation topic is on “Supercooled Metals as Low Processing Temperature Conductive Ink.”
iMatSci at MRS Fall Meeting 2017 – November 27-28, Boston, Massachusetts
SAFI-Tech’s technology has been accepted into the iMatSci Innovator Showcase at the 2017 MRS Fall Meeting. This year, iMatSci will welcome 25 innovators who will be demonstrating their new materials-based technologies. All technologies will be judged, and the top three will be awarded cash prizes based on the following criteria: clarity, presentation, value proposition, impact and scalability.
SAFI-Tech has invented small liquid metal filled balloons that can be broken to release the liquid metal, which then solidifies. The material can be applied as a paste or spray and by removing the heating/melting of the metal from the processing sensitive electronic materials and substrates can be electrically connected, 3D-printed, or repaired without heating, thereby making new products, lowering manufacturing costs, and decreasing energy use.
