TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND MANUFACTURING PARTNERSHIP
Ynvisible Interactive Inc. and ALMAX have partnered to bring sensing cold chain, logistics and Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions to market for distributors and end customers. Ynvisible and ALMAX have signed a Transfer Agreement for North American and Chinese commercial production of a Temperature Threshold Indicator tag.
Ynvisible will supply ALMAX with ready-made electrochromic displays, in volume roll-to-roll format, for ALMAX integration. ALMAX has begun production of the temperature tag, customized with the ALMAX logo and graphics.
Also, ALMAX has produced 200 production-ready demonstrators integrating Ynvisible electrochromic displays into ALMAX electronics, customized with the ALMAX logo and contact information.
Founded in 2000, ALMAX is owned by two experienced membrane switch and interface application ME & EE professionals from the United States. ALMAX specializes in prototyping through volume production, making it easy to get customers' products to market.
