The concept here is to developed technologies that can embed electronic functions such as touch and lighting inside the plastic components, getting ride of mechanical buttens which will result in a more slick and futuristic look.
The main challenge will be to make printed electrical components that can then be inserted into MAIERS injection moulding process, withoug damaging the flexible print nor the mounted components.
The implementation of imbedded printed electronics will result in:
- Demonstrate 15-20 % reduced production costs through implementation of printed/embedded components into MAIERs injection moulding line
- Demonstrate 15 % reduction of energy consumption in production through implementation of printed/embedded components processes compared to manually assebly of mechanical components
