About EoPlex Technologies Inc.
EoPlex produces components in layers, using 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. As a result, there is great flexibility to change designs quickly, allowing fast time to market and even modifications during full production runs. EoPlex Technologies Inc. is located in Redwood City, CA.
