Enabling the Internet of Things
Printed electronics are crucial in the development of the Internet of Things, in which objects become increasingly smart, gathering and sharing information with other objects and the cloud. Our homes, cars and even clothes are being fitted with a wide range of sensors, smart labels, loggers and tags, all of which can be manufactured at low-cost by using printed electronics.
“Our advanced screen printing techniques enable us to
integrate electronics in any type of material, creating affordable smart objects.”
A world of possibilities
Quad Industries uses its expertise in precision screen printing techniques to integrate functionality directly on various lightweight and flexible materials such as plastics, textiles, TPU and even paper. This allows the integration of a wide range of electronics – temperature sensors, NFC antennas, batteries – in any object, whatever its shape, size or material. Printed electronics not only enhance flexibility, they are also less harmful to the environment and more cost-effective to manufacture.
You have a great idea.
