We collaborate with you to adapt your designs to injection molded structural electronics.

Partnering with Customer for Success – Collaborative Design

TactoTek’s in-mold structural electronics solution creates new design opportunities. Making optimal use of those capabilities comes from combining our customers’ market-specific knowledge and requirements with TactoTek’s structural electronics expertise. To accelerate customer success, TactoTek’s Product Creation Team works as your design partner to bring the advantages of structural electronics to your design concept.

TactoTek’s Product Creation Team does not design a complete product for you–our customers own their designs. Instead, we collaborate with customer teams to identify different approaches of meeting your design objectives using in-mold electronics, including whether doing so influences other design considerations.

Optimally, the Product Creation team’s involvement begins with early stages of defining product features and functionality, and they remain an active partner throughout prototyping and mass production to ensure that the final design can be produced efficiently to your standards.
