In-mould Electronics: from rigid PCB to 3D and flexible – Presented by Janaina de Castro, SABIC

In-mould Electronics: from rigid PCB to 3D and flexible – Presented by Janaina de Castro, SABIC at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, which takes place on Jan 23, 2018 at High Tech Campus Eindhoven in The Netherlands.

In-mould Electronics (IME) is a technology that enables new design possibilities, space optimization and innovative features. It incorporates electronics in a plastic part. Benefits of IME technology:

  • One-piece design combining decorative surface and electronics
  • Surface functionalization: encapsulated sensors, antennas, haptics and more
  • Weight saving
  • Assembly simplification and electronics protection
