“Structural Electronics; the new manufacturing paradigm”, Presented by Rajesh Mandamparambil, TNO

By integrating electronics into loadbearing or protective structures, conventionally dumb plastic parts can be made smart. Currently different techniques like thermoforming and inmold are being explored. Utilizing the freedom of shape and flexibility of 3D printing techniques and combining the technologies from flexible electronics a new manufacturing paradigm is being developed. TNO is developing such manufacturing technologies towards mass customization of structural electronics. This will enable industries to accelerate innovations in this filed towards faster time to market. This presentation will talk about the current efforts from TNO towards this realization and the future vision.
