OTTAWA—February 4, 2015—The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (www.cpeia-acei.ca), the united voice of Canada’s Printable Electronics sector, has signed printing industry leader FUJIFILM Dimatix to join the association and as a Gold Sponsor for the 2015 Canadian Printable Electronics Symposium (CPES2015).

FUJIFILM Dimatix is the world’s leading provider of inkjet printheads for commercial and industrial printing. It is evolving inkjetting into a micro-production process that will revolutionize the manufacture of electronic and bioscience applications. The company’s technology innovations and world-class fabrication processes enable high-performance, micro-precision printing and deposition of traditional inks and nano-particle fluids on all types of surfaces, including flexible substrates.

“We are pioneering the advanced inkjet delivery systems critical to the growth of the global printable electronics industry,” said Martin Schoeppler, President and CEO of FUJIFILM Dimatix. “But our technology is only one piece of the puzzle. We need to engage with manufacturers, system integrators, researchers and innovators to drive our industry forward and create disruptive new applications. That’s why we see value in being a part of the Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association and CPES2015.”

CPES2015 will showcase the convergence of research and development, industry expertise, commercial effort and government support that gives Canada a tremendous opportunity in the explosive global market for printable electronics (PE).
