An HR Story: Hiring at Classic Stripes: A unique Culture!

Posted by Charbax – December 7, 2019

To create a global organisation that would create state of the art products in the field Of Printed Flexible Electronics, it's necessary to create a culture that was very far away from cultures dictated by management science. This means it has to be a culture that is not based upon the tenets of cooperation or performance management. So they do away with Performance appraisals and meetings. They bring in a culture based upon on 3 tenets: Entrepreneurship: Circle of Accountability, Execution: My Word, and Collaboration: Taking a stand for others’ success without expecting anything in return.

Collaboration is the opposite of cooperation. Cooperation is a barter system because human beings expect something when they cooperate with each other. Collaboration is different as there are no expectations when one collaborates. In classic stripes they all take an objective which is someone else’s who is of a completely different department or division of the one they're at. And they work hard to help them achieve the same without expecting anything in return! That is Classic Stripes DNA!

Copprint Copper for Printed Electronics much cheaper than silver eco-friendly

Posted by Charbax – December 3, 2019

Copprint https://copprint.com/ claims that the future of printed electronics is copper. Copprint is the leader in conductive Nano copper inks for additive copper printing. We are ushering in a new era of printed electronics, empowering ubiquitous conductivity. Their rapid self-sintering, oxidation free Nano Copper Inks enable very-low cost, high conductivity, environmentally friendly printed electronics embedded everywhere.
Copprint breakthrough Nano Copper inks outperform silver inks and etched Copper or Aluminum, bringing the advantages of additive manufacturing to printed electronics Copprint's product portfolio offers full substrate freedom for really simple printed electronic fabrication on paper, PET, PI, HJT PV.
Conductive Copper inks are finally available. Just print and sinter for 2 sec to achieve up to 50% bulk conductivity. The new inks allow low-temperature sintering under air and do not require any special equipment like photonic or laser sintering. Made out of Copper nanoparticles - it is much cheaper than silver inks and environmentally friendly and compatible with standard printing equipment.
