Notion Systems and Scrona sign agreement for strategic partnership
April 20, 2021 – Notion Systems GmbH
Notion Systems GmbH, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printing systems for functional materials and Scrona AG, a developer and manufacturer of ultra-high resolution EHD (electrohydrodynamic) print heads, are pleased to announce they have entered into a global strategic partnership.
Both companies are combining Notion’s know-how in developing and manufacturing high end printing systems for functional materials and Scrona’s novel multi nozzle EHD MEMS print heads. This next generation printing technology will dramatically improve printing resolution and throughput at the micron and submicron scale and has the potential to replace many conventional production steps in microfabrication.
“The Notion-Scrona partnership brings together deep tech and business strategy, industrialization and market introduction of this new technology into different applications such as display, electronics or semiconductor manufacturing. In addition, Notion Systems will start to manufacture and market Scrona´s high resolution NanoDrip™ Lab Printer which is mainly designed for high level R&D facilities”, comments Antonio Schmidt, VP Sales and Marketing, at Notion.
