OptoFidelity and TactoTek Develop Automated Production Test Systems for Printed Electronics and IMSE

June 3, 2019 Alix Paultre

OptoFidelity and TactoTek are developing automated production test systems for injection molded structural electronics (IMSE) parts, to meet the specific requirements of in-mold electronics. The system tests part functionality and production process quality after each of four steps in the IMSE production process, the decoration and electronics printing, component surface mounting, thermoforming, and injection molding.

“Measuring performance and functionality of printed multilayer electronics that are stretched during thermoforming requires new measurement methods,” noted Miikka Kärnä, Head of Operational Excellence at TactoTek. “The data from the OptoFidelity test systems supports continuous improvement in all phases of IMSE design and production.”

“We are very excited to be part of the industrialization of IMSE by applying our 10+ years of robot assisted test automation to develop test systems to meet the specialized testing requirements of TactoTek’s smart surface solutions,” said Pertti Aimonen, CEO of OptoFidelity.
