The World’s first 3D Electronics Printer from Voxel8

The ability to print electronics is an emerging technology that is forecasted to experience significant growth over the next 5 years as seen in the below chart by NanoMarkets: When we talk about traditional "printed electronics", we typically refer to the ability to print electronic circuits onto a substrate. The act of creating the substrate and the act of printing the circuits are usually two separate activities. We've highlighted a number of companies dabbling in the area of printed electronics such as PragmatIC who is printing flexible logic circuits, Vorbek who has developed a graphene-based conductive ink for printing electronics, Pricer and SES who are using e-ink to create shelf labels, and companies such as Solicore, Enfucell, and Blue Spark who are printing batteries. Then there is the concept of "3D printed electronics" which would involve printing a 3D object while simultaneously embedding the [...]

A Wind Power IPO from Northern Power Systems

Wind power has been one of the fastest growing sources of electricity generation over the past decade with global capacity increasing tenfold. For investors looking for exposure to wind power, bigger companies have typically dominated the space. Siemens is the market leader in offshore wind turbines. Danish company Vestas has more than 43,000 turbines installed in 66 countries. GE Energy's 1.5MW turbine is the world's most widely-deployed wind turbine, with more than 16,000 installed around the globe. Although small-cap pure play companies are hard to come by, one micro-cap company, Northern Power Systems (TSE:NPS), recently filed for an IPO on the Nasdaq Capital Market. (All numbers below are in USD).         Northern Power Systems targets the small wind subset of the distributed wind market, which commonly consists of turbines with rated capacities of 500 kW output or [...]

Magforce: The Nanomedicine Company

In a previous article, we highlighted Nanobiotix (EPA:NANO), a company that saw their share price increase nearly +200% in the past 12 months on the back of their nanoparticles that are injected into tumor cells and then interact with X-rays to maximize the effect of radiotherapy. While Nanobiotix expects that their technology could be CE marked for sale in the European Union by 2016, another German company, Magforce, has developed injectable nanoparticles for tumors that already have EU-wide approval.     About Magforce Founded in 1997, Berlin based Magforce (FRA:MF6) was first brought to our attention by a reader in 2005. Since then, the Company launched their NanoTherm™ therapy technology in 2011 and began trading on the Frankfurt stock exchange in the same year. Magforce has 40 employees and a strong IP portfolio consisting of 17 international patent families, approximately 100 single [...]

Store Electronic Systems: An E-Ink Pure Play

In a previous article we discussed electronic ink or E-ink and how its usage will decline as the demand for e-readers declines. On the other hand, applications such as “electronic shelf labels (ESLs)” for use in retail “bricks-and-mortar” storefronts are expected to more than offset this decline. ABI Research issued a report recently titled “Next Gen Retail: Electronic Shelf Labels” in which they forecasted that revenues will increase almost six fold in the next 5 years to almost US$2 billion by 2019. In that same report, two companies were mentioned as major players that are dominating traditional ESL markets; Pricer and Store Electronics Systems (SES).       About Store Electronic Systems (SES) French- company Store Electonics Systems (EPA:SESL) or SES designs and markets electronic shelf labeling systems for food and non-food retail industries. The Company currently trades on the [...]
