The building stones for smart products

Printed Electronics

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.”

Flexible printed electronics: a world of possibilities

Quad Industries uses its expertise in high-precision, fully automated 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 – sensors, connectivity, heating – 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.

Printable electronics: from idea to execution

Although printed electronics represent an almost limitless area of possibilities, there is still a large gap between the many ideas that are being generated and the practical execution. That’s where Quad Industries comes in. We can help you integrate electronics into any kind of object, from sport shoes to security badges and smart plastics. Whether you’re a start-up or a multinational, we help you get the results you’re after. Do you want to know more about our printed electronics solutions for your products?

Printed electronics – Technologies

We use two types of technology for our printable electronics: printed sensors and flexible heating. Below you can find more information about these two techniques.

Printed Sensors

Printed sensors are the primary building stones for the development of the Internet of Things and creating smart products and objects.

Flexible Heating

Flexible PTC heating technology is creating many new opportunities to integrate heating in a wide range of new applications
