Peratech is a team of creative problem-solvers on a mission to transform the interaction between humans and machines.
Since Peratech began, we've spent extensive amounts of time and effort on solving the questions around our technology. Questions about performance, integration and manufacturability to name a few.
To help us solve those questions we've developed bespoke methods and tools. We now understand how different QTC formulations flow under various conditions. We've used special microscopy techniques to study the impact of ink surface characteristics on sensor performance. We've even developed and built custom test equipment when we found nothing on the market could satisfy our performance requirements.
The level of understanding we've gained from our research has enabled us to improve every aspect of our sensors. We've created sensors with levels of durability, repeatability and environmental consistency unmatched by the competition.
To complement our sensors, Peratech has built a team of software experts to develop custom embedded electronics and algorithms. By providing a complete tactile-sensing module, we enable our customers to rapidly develop next-generation tactile-sensing solutions for a wide variety of markets—such as mobile devices, consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, medical, gaming, AR and VR and computers.
No matter how great a tactile-sensing solution is, mechanical integration can be the limiting factor. Poor-quality integration can mean low sensor sensitivity, and unreliable performance-which directly translates to poor user experience. Excellent user experience is key to the success of Peratech and our customers. We place such importance on the integration of our solutions that we have teams across the world dedicated to solving these problems for our customers.
We pride ourselves on offering an end to end solution. We've developed the manufacturing capability, built supply chain partnerships with globally recognised manufacturing partners and worked with major OEMs. Everything we do has one goal in mind—to give our customers real value. Whether that's by helping them to get to market faster, reduced design or manufacturing cost or by providing options to differentiate their product from the competition.
To date, Peratech QTC solutions have been used in smartphones, electronic whiteboards, cordless drills, gaming mice, smart stylus and even NASA robots! The breadth and depth of development projects we have worked on have led to a healthy International Patent Portfolio covering our core IP.
Peratech is proud to be part of the group of companies sponsoring Made Here Now. We're passionate about encouraging our staff and interns to develop their skills, expand their potential and build a career within the manufacturing sector.
While our efforts to achieve our goals is truly global; they start in the UK. Peratech is proudly based in North Yorkshire and has offices in the USA, China, Sweden, South Korea and Japan.
