Not everything is what it seems. Sometimes it’s just better!
Thanks to our UniCTouch technology – a capacitive sensor can be applied to any kind of overlay material.
Our customer metalizes the plastic in order to equip the metal strip in the dashboard of a car with touch sensors instead of mechanical buttons or even sliders. Because of the metal layer, standard capacitive sensing is not possible. The UniCTouch technology solves this problem and makes many applications suddenly possible. The printed electronics, our flexible UniCTouch touch sensor, is mounted inside the moulded part.
This video shows how plastic components that are metalized can be made smart through touch technology instead of mechanical buttons
