TactoTek Corporation

TactoTek Injection Molded Structural Electronics (IMSE™) is a revolutionary technology that changes the way electronic parts such as HMI surfaces are designed and built. It integrates printed electronics (circuitry, sensors, and antennas) and discrete electronic components (LEDs, ICs, etc.) inside of thin 3D plastic structures. Embedding functionality such as lighting, controls, gesture sensors and antennas within 3D-shaped surface structures significantly reduces the thickness and weight of parts, delivers excellent touch and antenna performance and brings unique design opportunities for the next generation of HMIs.

Unravelling Competing In-Mold Electronics Manufacturing Methodologies

Smooth, functional surfaces that provide touch sensing, often with backlighting, are becoming increasingly common. Applications range from vehicle interiors and domestic appliances to medical devices and aircraft seating. Rather than relying on a mechanical or membrane switch, these surfaces utilize capacitive touch sensing - the same principle used in smartphone displays.
