RVmagnetics Wins Boutique Research & Development Business of the Year - Slovakia
Winners in the Corporate Livewire Innovation Awards 2021
Established in 2015 by Rastislav Varga, RVmagnetics is a technology research and development company that has created the world’s smallest passive sensor based on microwire technology. The thin, elastic and contactless sensor produces accurate real-time data directly uploaded to a client’s smartphone or an ARM/Nucleo chip. The incredibly unique technology is able to sense more than one physical quantity at a time, measuring pressure, temperature, torsion, bending, movement, flow and electrical current, and much more. In addition, RVmagnetics’ sensors can withstand harsh acidic and alkaline environments, provide data for a period longer than a lifetime and survive temperatures of up to 600 degrees without losing their accuracy. The company currently supplies its leading technology to customers across Europe, Asia and the United States in a wide variety of industries such as healthcare, construction and civil engineering, defence, transportation, and oil and gas.
The judging panel praised RVmagnetics not only for its innovation but for its exceptional customer service. The company’s sensors and sensing technology are designed to meet individual client’s needs, are calibrated for desired ranges and accuracy, and can be embedded into almost any material (carbon, glass composites, ceramics, plastics, concrete, steel and even human tissue) without affecting its property or causing defects. As a result of the micro-size of the sensor, its low power consumption and contactless sensing, clients have been able to increase efficiency, accuracy and customer satisfaction within their own products and services. RVmagnetics has helped customers increase their ROI (Return on Investment) on maintenance, improve their manufacturing process, develop their products' structural health, and reduce claim costs. The business additionally offers clients a pay-as-you-go payment option, whereby fees are only settled once customers receive, and are satisfied with, their sensors.
RVmagnetics’ highly professional, talented and dedicated team has a combined experience of more than 50 years in various aspects of microwires- chemistry, physics, engineering and electronics. Founder Prof. Varga has over 25 years of experience alone in fundamental and applied research magnetism and is also a member of the General Council at the European Magnetism Association.
