Low weight, no need for cables and highly automated manufacturing of fully customised components: Printed electronics offers many advantages for the aviation industry. At the LOPEC Conference 2019, Dennis Hahn from aircraft manufacturer Airbus and Max Seissler from the consulting and technology company Altran will provide an overview of the special requirements placed on flying components. Based in Hamburg, Germany, they are cooperating on printed electronics for the aircraft cabin. In this interview they illustrate the challenges and visions.
Fashion designers are expanding their range to include printed electronics. They design innovative garments that are not only beautiful and comfortable, but also think for themselves. Visitors of LOPEC 2019 will experience what is already possible today and how e-textiles are going to enrich our everyday lives in the future. The international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry will take place in Munich from 19 to 21 March 2019.
