In March, LOPEC took place in Munich with about 160 international companies. They used the opportunity to present a full range of products and solutions for organic and printed electronics, from research to market launch. For Lohmann’s (Neuwied, Germany) bonding engineers, too, printed electronics is a promising market which offers innovative product possibilities. Consumer goods & electronics, transportation, medical, intelligent textiles and packaging are the main focuses of printed electronics – areas in which Lohmann has decades of experience.
