VueReal Story:

VueReal's solution has been validated by major companies such as automotive, consumer electronics, and equipment vendors. These activities led to successful business expansion and enabled VueReal to become a supplier of critical devices in North America. This fabrication platform will impact several industries, including consumer electronics. We have aggressive growth plans across the board.

More importantly, the printing aspect of the technology makes it more efficient in material utilization leading to a significant reduction in environmental hazardous emissions and water consumption. Furthermore, higher performance microdevices contribute to lower power consumption, resulting in substantial environmental benefits.
