    FloridaMakes Webinar: Flexible Hybrid Electronics: What it Means for Your Business
    Wednesday, November 15
    12 p.m. -1 p.m.

    Click here to register.

    Presenter: C. Andy Helm, Strategic Business Manager, Enterprise Innovation Institute, Georgia Tech.
    Flexible Hybrid Electronics: What it Means for Your Business

    Manufacturers across the world are already using FHE to increase their manufacturing capabilities. Are you familiar with FHE and what it can do for your business? If not, you should be.

    In a nutshell, FHE eliminates many of the barriers associated with traditional rigid electronics and allows for new and exciting applications. Some examples may be process sensors resulting in improved shop floor efficiencies or sensors monitoring environmental conditions throughout transit.

    With the emergence of technology within manufacturing the only consistency is change, but change can mean great things for manufacturers, if you allow yourself to be exposed to new ideas and concepts to help grow your business.

    The Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP) at Georgia Tech is conducting a free, 50-minute webinar to introduce you to Flexible Hybrid Electronics and to better understand how small to mid-size manufacturers can incorporate this into their plant.

    Please register at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/573546333226714625

    To learn how FloridaMakes’ services can unlock growth opportunities and cost savings for your company, contact your FloridaMakes’ Business Advisor Amy Lee at Alee@steic.org or at (727) 424-3698 (cell).

    FloridaMakes is the official representative of the MEP National Network and NIST MEP in the State of Florida.
