ARMOR, Novasentis form global manufacturing partnership

ARMOR and Novasentis have formed a global partnership to develop Novasentis´ haptic technology for the wearables mass-market, leveraging ARMOR´s background expertise in formulation and high-tech volume coating in their manufacturing facility to provide specialty films for Novasentis´ haptic actuators, the companies said.

Both companies are confident that ARMOR´s high-speed coating and film-making capability is best positioned in the industry to meet the expected demand. The two companies have been working together for several months and have manufactured prototypes using a roll-to-roll process. Production is expected in early 2017.

Novasentis is a developer of haptic and sensory feedback for wearable devices, including smart watches, AR/VR and gaming controllers.

ARMOR provides thermal transfer technology and high-performance coating on thin films. ARMOR, headquartered in France, has 2,000 employees located at 24 industrial and logistics locations. In 2015, annual revenues were EUR240 million.
