NovaCentrix, the industry’s leading provider of photonic curing tools, conductive inks, and material and expertise enabling development and production of next generation printed electronic devices, has announced the appointment of Ron Torenko of Torenko & Associates as their newest rep. He will cover the territories of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and the interior of Mexico, with a focus on NovaCentrix’s newest innovation: PulseForge soldering tools.
“After being involved with convection and vapor phase reflow over the past 45 years, I am excited again to pioneer a new technology in reflow with NovaCentrix,” commented Torenko. “Soldering with PulseForge® tools will have its place in the market. Soldering to fabric, PET, PVC, and even paper is the wave of the future. A lot of these materials do not like high temperatures for long periods of time in reflow. Now we can solder in milliseconds and not damage the substrates or the parts. We will also not need 20 foot reflow ovens to keep up with the pace of the SMT lines along with many more benefits with this technology.” “We are excited to partner with Ron in developing clients with this new soldering toolset. The response thus far from key accounts has been very encouraging,” said Stan Farnsworth, Chief Marketing Officer at NovaCentrix.
NovaCentrix’ PulseForge® Soldering tools utilize photonic curing which is a cutting edge technology that dries, sinters, and anneals functional inks in milliseconds on low-temperature, flexible substrates such as paper and plastic. PulseForge tools can save time and money, and enable new types of products in applications like solar, RFID, display, packaging, and circuit. Additionally, NovaCentrix’ Metalon® conductive inks capitalize on advanced materials and formulation to provide conductivity options for additive manufacturing of printed electronics with stretchable, solderable, resistive, and magnetic qualities.
