Kateeva

OLED displays are displacing LCDs and Kateeva is at the center of that revolution. Kateeva’s inkjet deposition equipment solutions enable cost-effective mass production of OLED displays that are low power, high contrast, pure color, ultra-fast, shatterproof, flexible, and super-thin for mobile, wearables, TVs and curved, rollable and foldable form factors. Kateeva is the first inkjet platform developed from the ground up for OLED mass production and sits at the foundation of the supply chain, providing a critical enabling solution with unique proprietary technology.

Kateeva inkjet addresses the most difficult OLED display manufacturing challenges: Thin Film Encapsulation (TFE) and Red, Green, Blue (RGB) pixel patterning. With Kateeva inkjet technology, OLED can be lower cost than LCD due to the simpler product structure.

Kateeva’s inkjet systems deliver a highly precise and efficient material deposition solution. In the TFE and RGB applications, the Kateeva equipment replaces shadowmask vacuum evaporation, offering superior film quality, higher yield, lower cost per throughput, better scalability to larger glass sizes, and reduced maintenance. Their product lines span all sizes from R&D, pilot and full production tools.

This is a fully validated technology with mass production tool installations at the leading OLED manufacturers, including industry leader Samsung Display. With a recent investment of $88 million from major Chinese venture firms and supply chain partners joining existing investors like Samsung Venture Investment Corporation, Veeco, Sigma Partners, Spark Capital, Madrone Capital, and others, and a robust order pipeline with projected sales of 100M to 150M USD in 2016 and the opportunity to build a 1B USD per year business within the next five years, Kateeva is well positioned for future success.

  • FlowEngine, a product-line that targets the communication and content provider traffic management market. These products are designed to classify and intelligently distribute session data flows to appropriate network processing resources in new virtualized network functions (“NFV”) based architectures. FlowEngine products enable communication and content service providers to efficiently transition towards NFV architectures by integrating a targeted subset of edge routing, data center switching, and load balancing functionality along with software-defined networking (“SDN”) control.
  • MediaEngine products are designed into the IMS core of telecom networks and provide the necessary media processing capabilities required for applications such as audio conferencing, Voice over Long-Term Evolution (“VoLTE”), Voice over WiFi (“VoWifi”), Rich Communications Services (“RCS”) and Web Real-Time Communication (“WebRTC”). As carriers consolidate network capacity from older (3G and 2G) architectures onto new LTE architectures, they will deploy VoLTE applications. Radisys MediaEngine provides the needed media processing capability that delivers audio, video or other multimedia modalities over LTE wireless networks.
  • CellEngine software, which includes the TotalENodeB LTE and Femtotality 3G software products, is targeted at providing the communication linkage between wireless end user devices and small cell base stations that mobile carriers are deploying to optimize wireless network spectrum utilization and coverage. These products provide software applications which enable small 3G and LTE operator-controlled, low-power wireless base stations (known as small cells, femtocells, enterprise femtocells and picocells) that enable improved cellular coverage and capacity for homes and enterprises as well as metropolitan and rural areas.
  • Also included in this segment is the Professional Service organization which is staffed with telecommunications experts who are available to assist our customers as they develop their own unique telecommunications products and applications. Radisys enables the efficient and cost effective adoption of Software-Systems products as customers integrate them into complete systems.

Their products enable network elements for applications such as Deep Packet Inspection (“DPI”), policy management and intelligent gateways (security, femto and LTE gateways). The professional service organization of network experts accelerates customers’ time to market on these revenue generating assets.

With growing demand, world class software and expertise in communications infrastructure solutions, a higher margin software solutions offering, and existing customers like Philips Medical, Arbor Networks, Mitel, Nokia, NEC, Fujitsu, Tier 1 Telecom Carriers and many more, Radisys is well positioned for future success.

New search: World Class Technology Corp. COO

February 12th, 2016 | Category:

WCT

World Class Technology Corporation (“WCT”) designs, manufactures and/or distributes a full line of proprietary orthodontic products. These products include buccal tubes, brackets, lingual buttons, elastics, instruments and the recently launched self-ligating system products (H4 and the H4 Translucent), all sold under the Ortho Classic brand name. The company also contract manufactures certain products for other orthodontic brands and customers in other industries. From its roots as a pioneer in metal-injection-molding manufacturing, WCT today creates some of the highest quality orthodontic components in the industry.

Due to its design expertise and manufacturing skills, WCT is able to offer orthodontic products with superior quality to its competition, at a competitive price point. This provides potential customers with a significant value proposition that offers a benefit to both doctors and consumers in the form of shorter treatment times, as well as a benefit to doctors of less expensive hardware.

Products include:

H4 Bracket – The H4 is a high quality self-ligating metal bracket designed with a onepiece base and radial contours which helps prevent plaque buildup typically found in most brackets in the marketplace. The H4 has extremely tight tolerances which create a consistent slot size for the wire, and designed to give the orthodontist a higher level of control over the tooth movement during the finishing stages of treatment. The H4’s design also allows it to adhere more easily to the tooth, and with a stronger bond, minimizing bond failures.

C-Thru Bracket – The C-Thru is also a translucent, resin-based bracket, but has a unique low-profile design structure that is less than half the height of the normal industry standard bracket. The smooth contoured design flows naturally against the tooth, providing superior patient comfort making it harder
for people to notice in a patient’s mouth. C-Thru significantly reduces treatment time, treatment cost and puts more control back in the hands of the orthodontist.

Mini-Twin – The Mini-Twin follows an industry standard bracket design, one that every orthodontist in North America is familiar with. While WCT’s minitwin offers superior quality manufacturing, the design is similar to that of many other brackets in the marketplace. There is a subset of orthodontists in the market who are most comfortable using the traditional design of bracket in their practice which is why WCT will continue to offer this style of bracket.

WCT has spent years refining its manufacturing techniques and processes, which has resulted in superior product quality, high yields, and cost efficiencies. WCT’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility includes CAD/CAM design, CNC, EDM, Metal Injection Molding (“MIM”), sintering and coining equipment.

Based in McMinnville, Oregon, WCT has an extensive customer base, with over 700 active customers around the world. With increased revenue, strong EBITDA and the backing of Caltius Equity Partners, WCT is well positioned for future success.
