Greater design freedoms will become available with lighter, curved and flexible structural shapes now containing the devices electronics

Finnish electronic devices manufacturer, TactoTek, has unveiled details of its new manufacturing process, which enables light, thin designs that incorporate electronics into structural plastics

The company is able to insert electronic components into injection moulded parts, including LEDs for sophisticated lighting, sensors, ICs, and printed touch controls in both rigid and flexible designs, .

With integrated 3D printed electronics still some way off, this method, using a flexible substrate to encapsulate electronics into a more traditional injection moulded part, might lead the way for new wearables and electric vehicles technology.
