Fully-Integrated Injection Molded Structural Electronics Solutions For Mass Production
11:15 - 11:40
Injection-molded structural electronics (IMSE) enables 3D smart plastic structures that can be thin and light, rigid or flexible, and can be mass produced today. TactoTek will present IMSE solutions that combine flexible printed circuitry, surface mount components, and injection molding to create fully integrated smart molded surfaces, and discuss the materials and techniques that make them mass producible.
