The Smart Plastics initiative is a professional service and know-how network for developments and projects at the interface of mechatronics, plastics and design. The objective is to manufacture functional components that meet the highest quality and design specifications. 20 partners from industry and research use this platform for the creative exchange of knowledge and future-oriented technologies and for carrying out joint development projects.
The focus is on the industrial and large-scale technology implementation of direct, seamless integration of a wide range of electronic functionalities in various types of components. These electronic functionalities (innovative technologies as well as conventional electronic components) are realised using innovative coating and/or assembly technologies. The manufacture of functionalised, plastics-based components is done via thermoforming and/or in-mould processes (Functional Film Insert Moulding). The partner structure of the initiative covers the entire value-adding chain from plastics as the starting materials through to high quality, functionalised components.
Manufacturers, product developers and suppliers (regardless of industry), who want to seamlessly integrate various electronic functions into their products without having to make significant changes to the principle design.
We would be pleased to advise you on how you can best realise your innovative product ideas and can offer you solutions from our competence network to ensure the success of your project.
