Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project was to optimize the design of our LEC patches for cost-effective manufacturing with sufficient performance to meet customer needs, and then verify that the design was transferable to industrial scale manufacturing. During the course of the project, we optimized our LEC patch to meet the customer´s needs, and we have demonstrated that the manufacturing process works on an industrial scale. However, cost / performance optimization is still required for the product to be introduced to the market.

Expected results and effects

The project has led to intense customer engagement from a large industrial potential manufacturer. Our technology has proven to be scalable in their industrial set-up. We expect a joint cost / performance optimization project in 2020, for production in 2021. In addition, our prototype development has created much international exposure to LunaLEC´s competence. As an example, our prototype was awarded First Prize in future technology at the 9th ICFPE trade show in Shanghai 2018, and the CEO has been invited speaker at IdTechEx in Silicon Valley.

Planned approach and implementation

During the project the scope changed from a planned specific product development to a broader process development. This led to more focus on a device that is more scalable and adapted to industrial manufacturing. In the long run, it gives LunaLEC a better foundation for more products.
