In-Mold Electronics

In-Mold Electronics leverages the benefits of printed electronics and in-mold decorating to create smart surfaces and 3 dimensional user interfaces. A multi-layer construction includes both graphics and electronic circuitry that is permanently fused to plastic during the in-mold decorating process. This creates an integrated touch interface that reduces cost, components, and complexity. Best of all, it provides manufacturers with the futuristic touch interfaces their customers want.

In-Mold Electronics Process

From flat film to functional part

Print

Graphics and circuitry layers are printed on a flat polymer film.

Form

Printed film is precision formed to a three dimensional shape that mirrors the final molded part.

Mold

Final part is created by injection molding the formed film using the in-mold decorating process to add structure and electrical connections.
