Understanding wearables and in-mold electronics

Wednesday, November 28th at 10:00 a.m. PT/1:00 p.m. ET

The explosive growth and interest in smart wearables and in-mold electronics (IME) has spurred companies to tap new markets and explore uncharted territories. While we are witnessing exciting developments on both of these frontiers of functional printing, companies still regularly face several design development hurdles including including patterning conductive materials on stretchable fabrics and getting inks to withstand the thermoforming and injection molding process.

In the functional printing consortium of designers, manufacturers, and suppliers, GMN’s experts will be bringing to you the unique perspective of experienced technical printers. To comprehend and navigate the latest challenges of functional printing, sign up for our free informational webinar on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

During this webinar you will learn about:

  • Patterning functional inks for wearable substrates
  • Integration challenges and designing interconnects for wearables
  • Understanding the impact of form factor on IME development
  • Challenges with integration of discrete components into IME
  • Forward thinking: What does the future hold for functional printing?
