Voltera Inc. continues to make waves in the printed electronics sector.
Voltera was born of a Capstone Design project created by team members Alroy Almeida, James Pickard, Jesus A. Zozaya and Nanotechnology Engineering grad Katarina Ilic (Class of 2013). They created a tool that uses their custom software and innovative silver nanoparticle-based ink to print circuit boards.
After developing its product through Waterloo’s Velocity Garage and Velocity Foundry programs, Voltera continued its evolution in its own space in Kitchener, Ontario. It has shipped more than a thousand units to over 60 countries around the world. Most of the buyers are developers, many of whom are using the circuit board printer to create their own innovations.
