Get to Know Our Facilities

TactoTek engineering team adapts customer designs into Injection Molded Structural Electronics solutions, and the vertically integrated production line optimizes them for mass production.

Use Cases

Automotive

3D contoured electronics: thin, light, seamless. TactoTek innovations free Industrial Designers to reshape, restyle and reinvent vehicle electronics. Imagine the possibilities.

Home Appliances & Automation

Graceful curves, responsive touch and advanced connectivity in ultra-thin, highly integrated designs: Smart Molded Structures make elegant solutions.

Wearables

Flexible, comfortable, durable and mass producible: TactoTek molds in intelligence that powers wearable technology.

Benefits

Design freedom

Include new functions, create innovative shapes and add electronic functionality in new locations when traditional design constraints are eliminated.

Durability & protection

Encapsulating printed electronics and components within plastics seals systems from moisture and debris, and protects them from shock and vibration.

Space-saving technology

Our in-mold electronics have a typical wall thickness of 2-4mm, and do not require the depth of light pipes and full width PCBs.

Excellent touch performance

Deliver superior performance by locating touch sensors as close as 0.1mm from the user; systems can be designed for reliable use with leather gloves.

Light weight

TactoTek structures are molded using standard plastics and eliminate multiple structural elements found in typical electronics designs.

Simple assembly

TactoTek in-mold electronics integrate many electronic functions within cosmetic plastics which reduces the number of parts and simplifies assembly.

“To achieve excellence in technology innovation is never an easy task, and is made even more difficult considering today’s competitive intensity. We identify companies, such as TactoTek, that excel in innovation, enabling them to serve their customers more effectively and grow faster than the industry average.”

David Frigstad, Chairman
Frost & Sullivan

“Wearable Technology, the Internet of Things and other new applications of electronics cannot be adequately served by the 100 year old components-in-a-box approach.
Lightweight, shaped, rugged, structural construction, where TactoTek excels, is essential. It will be invaluable in electric vehicles for example.”

Dr Peter Harrop IDTechEx, author of the report
”Structural Electronics 2015-2025″

“We are pleased that TactoTek’s 3D design and manufacturing expertise, including integrating ICs, are helping to make in-mold electronics a reality.”

John Voultos, Global Business Development Leader
