InMold Structural Electronics Workshop 2023
12 May 2023
This is a special one day event combining networking with learning and discussions on two themes: (1) screen printing and (2) in-mold electronics. In this page you can learn more about the activities around in-mold electronics. On the link here, you can learn more activities on screen printing
InMold Electronics is one of the most exciting technologies, enabling the reshaping of electronics into complex 3D shapes combined with mass production ability. The technology however faces a number of challenges to enable widespread adoption.
In this 1-hour session, we will design a panel to review the latest and address the following issues:
Material Compatibility: Ensuring that the materials used in IME, such as conductive inks and substrates, are compatible with the molding process.
Reliability: Ensuring the durability and reliability of in-mold electronics under various mechanical stresses, including bending, stretching, and impact.
Design Complexity: Managing the design complexity associated with integrating electronic components within a molded structure, including component placement and interconnections.
Manufacturing Yield: Improving manufacturing yield and reducing defect rates in in-mold electronics production.
Process Integration: Streamlining the integration of in-mold electronics manufacturing processes with existing molding and assembly techniques.
Standardization: Developing industry standards and best practices for in-mold electronics design, materials, and manufacturing processes
IP and licensing issues
Status of adoption by various industries like the auto industry
