Insulectro had the opportunity to attend the LOPEC show at the Messe Muchen Convention Center in Munich Germany. The event took place from February 28th to March 3rd and is a show that focuses on printed electronics and additive processing of flexible circuitry. This year’s theme focused on smart living and mobility.
Smart living was demonstrated by the vast range of how products and applications of Printed Electronics will make our life easier, smarter, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly in the future.
From solar cells integrated seamlessly in building facades or roofs, to skis with integrated sensors, to new light therapies for combating jaundice in babies – printed electronics plays a crucial role in all these innovations, as they are thin, lightweight, and flexible as well as cost-efficient to manufacture.
Thanks to these qualities, circuits, sensors and other electronics components can be integrated unobtrusively into practically anything.
Mobility especially in the automotive and aviation industries, printed electronics components open up a multitude opportunities and possibilities. For the automotive industry, printed electronics adds functionality to interior surfaces of the central console, doors, steering wheel and more with complete design freedom.
With touch sensors and printed electronics specialist manufacturer of 3D structural electronics companies will showcase 3D panels with integrated touch function, display, and illuminated elements.  Innovations such as ultra-thin heating elements for e-cars, printed sensors for greater safety during autonomous driving, and many more for tomorrow’s mobility.
