EoPlex raises $4,000,000

EoPlex Technologies Inc., a Redwood City, Calif.-based advanced materials company that makes miniature devices to generate, harvest and manage energy, has raised $4 million in Series C-2 funding. According to Arthur L. Chait, EoPlex CEO, the additional funding is being used to build a production plant for the manufacture of state-of-the-art cell phone antennas.  EoPlex produces components using innovative deposition techniques based on custom printing equipment and proprietary “inks” that carry ceramic, metallic or polymer materials to millions of locations. This allows the manufacture of components with integrated chambers, channels, sensors, circuits, reactors, energy scavengers and other features. Many parts are created simultaneously in large panels and the only tooling required is low-cost printing masks. The company is currently using this technology to develop products in markets that include: energy harvesters to replace batteries, micropumps, fuel cell parts, RF devices, thermal devices and fluidic components
