3D Sensor Technology
Laser Direct Structuring Revolutionizes Sensor Technology
Laser Direct Structuring technology is used to manufacture sensors for a variety of industrial applications including:
- Temperature Sensors
- Motion Sensors
- Pressure Sensors
- Flow Sensors
- Optical Sensors
- Plus More
LDS sensors are now being used in the Automotive industry, Medical industry, and for Fluid Handling.
The technical capabilities of LDS provide the ability to create circuits on a range of engineering plastics.
In addition to circuits, larger copper landing areas can be created for touch sensor capability.
Laser direct structuring materials now include liquid crystal polymers (LCP), nylons (PA’s), PET/PBT alloys & a range of other plastic materials, which provide a mechanical base with outstanding chemical and environmental resistance.
Sensors constructed with LDS or 2-shot molding technology can be made more compact & lightweight as compared with traditional metallic sensors.
The combination of engineering polymers with noble circuit traces stand up to lifetime corrosion exposure and perform better over time.
At SelectConnect Technologies we are ready to work with you on your 3D-MID sensor development application to reduce overall cost and improve performance.
