Printed Electronics

One of Today’s Most Productive Enabling Technologies

Printed electronics produces thinner, lighter, and more flexible circuit assemblies for the production of highly integrated products.

This low-cost additive manufacturing process enables any company to take advantage of this game-changing technology and functionality.

From inside a pet’s ear to a yogurt cup, from bandages to light bulbs – electronic circuitry is simply everywhere. Thanks to advances in material and manufacturing processes, designers can add interactivity, connectivity, power, sensing, and trackability to virtually any item. Gone are material limitations, allowing for electronic circuity on plastic, paper, textiles, glass, polymers, or metal.

Printed electronics is one of the most productive emerging enabling technologies, supporting the integration of complex functionality.
