ABSTRACT

A UK company based in the North East has developed an innovative method of delivering power through glass invisibly. A transparent lamination of conductive and non-conductive glass allows power or data to be transferred across individual layers within the lamination. They seek to expand their reach and are looking for international partners in Europe, USA and Canada through joint venture, licence or manufacturing and distribution agreements.

FULL DESCRIPTION

A company based in the North East of England, established for 17 years in product design and development. They have dedicated efforts into research, experimentation and product innovation, specifically in plastics, glass and lighting.

The company are driven by new materials, technologies and the latest manufacturing techniques, they have a track record of creating revolutionary products for global clients and are recognised name within the design field. The latest technological development by the company is an innovative method of delivering power through glass invisibly.

A transparent lamination of conductive and non-conductive glass allows power to be transferred across two or more layers within the lamination. Apertures located within the lamination allow electrical device to connect multiple low power (<50V) devices. The delivery of this energy is wire/cable free and invisible to the user. Unlike a traditional power outlet, this technology does not require a connection to wires as they are located within an entirely optically clear, laminated panel with no visual means of power connection.

The company has so far identified the following markets Lighting, Retail, Museum, Point of Sale, Architecture, Automotive, Aviation, Defence, Medical, Renewables and Farming but will be interested in investigating other markets to explore other potential applications or uses of their technology.

The company would like to speak to partners who would be interested in licensing their technology (knowledge and knowhow) for commercial products or project applications, distributors in the above-mentioned sectors or partners looking to manufacture the technology in their own territories, they would also consider a joint venture partnership.

Due to current IP ownership and diverse market applications the company are seeking partnerships in the following territories Europe, USA and Canada however will consider other countries.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: Seeks manufacturer of products looking to incorporate this technology
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The company is seeking partners to establish new licencing and/or manufacturing agreements with glass processors capable of manufacturing of conductive and non-conductive glass to satisfy their own market requirements

Or

Partnering with Companies and Brands interested in purchasing this technology (Panels and Components) from the company for distribution to their supplier network.

Equally

The company would like to speak to industries with well-established connections and networks in Lighting, Retail, Museum, Point of Sale, Architecture/Interiors, Automotive, Aviation, Defence, Medical, Renewables and Farming markets for distribution agreements for potential manufacturing agreements.

Initially the company, due to current IP ownership and diverse market applications the company are seeking partnerships in the following territories Europe, USA and Canada. However they are also open to discussing potential partnerships with companies outside of these markets and negotiating a way forward.


Advantages & innovations:

This innovative patent protected technology removes the need for wires and offers designers, architects and engineers limitless design opportunities to locate powered devices anywhere within transparent structures, and not where dictated to by the constraints of wires. Devices such as USB sockets, induction charging pads, motors, cameras, sensors, dials, actuators and digital displays can all be invisibly driven and appear to be ‘floating’ within the glass panels.

Powered devices can be setup to communicate between one another or controlled remotely via Bluetooth and other systems.

The company believes with the myriad range of electromechanical devices that can be powered within this technology, the ability to shape the glass to almost any shape or size and the vast range of applicable sectors this innovation can be used in many sectors as well as but not limited to Lighting, Retail, Museum, Point of Sale, Architecture, Automotive, Aviation, Defence, Medical, Renewables and Farming.

Early applications of this patented technology include LED lit display cases and shelving units for museums and induction charging ‘smart’ tables for high-end retail stores.

This technology is new to the market, there are no other competitive means of transferring an extracting power within glass invisibly.


Development Stage:

Already on the market - Technology is already proven in the market however it's flexibility means it can be integrated in to other products or markets, for which the the company are prepared to license their IP or work with a manufacturing company to develop new products for development.


IPR:

Secret Know-how,Design Rights,Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted,Trade Marks,Exclusive Rights,Copyright - Intellectual property is patent pending under the following GB1709766.8, EP18756270.7, CA WO2018234777 & US16/624,293
