From 28-31 Januray, ISPO 2018, the world’s leading sporting goods trade fair, takes place at Messe München in Munich, Germany.

Numerous industry sectors, from automotive, consumer electronics and household appliances to packaging and healthcare, have products based on organic and printed electronics. Consumer electronics is currently the largest industry in which this technology is being applied. This technology can be found in e-readers, smartphones and tablets, and it is used to turn clothing and accessories into intelligent wearables, as well as making the operation of automobiles and many devices easier through the use of touch sensors.
TactoTek (Oulu, Finland), a leader in injection moulded structural electronics (IMSE) solutions announced that it is collaborating with Dassault Systèmes (Paris, France) to enable users of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to digitally experiment with TactoTek IMSE parts. This will empower designers and engineers from automotive, home appliances, industrial and wearable electronics leaders to accelerate the development of their next generation consumer electronic experiences.
