Piezoresistive Ink

A piezoresistive material shows a change in the electrical resistivity when a mechanical strain is applied.

Areas of Application

Various industries implement these devices in their products in order to measure pressure. For example, the biomedical field uses piezoresistive sensors as tools to measure blood pressure, while the automotive industry uses them to gauge oil and gas levels in car engines.

Piezoelectric Ink

A piezoelectric material has the ability to generate an electric charge in response to applied mechanical stress. This effect is also reversible, which means that they exhibit changes on their physical dimension when an electric field is applied.

Areas of Application

As a sensing element, these materials can detect pressure variations in the form of sound, which are used in microphones and piezoelectric pickups on electrical guitars. Piezoelectric sensors are also used with high frequency sound in ultrasonic transducers for medical imaging and industrial nondestructive testing. They can also be used as human-machine interface (HMI) or to measure vibration in industrial structures and small components.

Ferromagnetic Ink

A ferromagnetic material exhibit strong magnetism in the same direction of the field, when a magnetic field is applied to it.

 Areas of Application

Ferromagnetic materials are used in many applications such as transformers, electromagnets, magnetic tape recording, hard drives, generators, loudspeakers, electric motors, hard disk, magnetic storage.
