Peratech shortlisted twice at the British Engineering Excellence Awards

Peratech’s force-sensing design excellence has been recognised by judges at the British Engineering Excellence Awards for 2017 in two categories.


The QTC based 3D Multi-Touch Matrix Sensor was shortlisted in the New Product (Electronic) of the Year category. The sensor is an array of force touch sensors based on Peratech’s proprietary QTC® technology that generates 3D data (x, y and z) with the third-dimension measuring pressure. It addresses diverse application requirements in markets ranging from consumer electronics, smart home and domestic appliances, to automotive systems, industrial equipment and medical devices.

The judges also acknowledged the talent at Peratech by shortlisting Sarah Dempsey for Young Designer of the Year. In her role as a Development Scientist, Sarah is engaged in a range of activities aimed at improving the performance of force-sensing solutions, including formulating new ink components that form the basis of their proprietary QTC® materials. Her work covers everything from tailoring sensor designs to meet customer needs through to developing test methods for evaluating and qualifying components. Her work has the potential to improve human machine interfaces across many industries in the coming decades.  

The award ceremony will take place at the British Engineering Excellence Awards lunch on 5th October at the Honourable Artillery Company in London.

Jon Stark, CEO at Peratech, commented, “To be shortlisted twice at the BEEAs shows that Peratech is an innovation leader, and our 3D force-sensing solutions have broad applicability. I’m very proud of the talented team working here and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the announcement of the winners next week.”
