TactoTek Expands in Germany
Regional Office to Provide Local Support
The developer of injection molded structural electronics solutions (IMSE) TactoTek Oy, Oulunsalo, Finland, opened an office in Ulm, Germany, to provide local engineering and project management support for customers developing IMSE solutions. TactoTek’s Ulm office complements the company’s sales offices in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
According to the company, demand for IMSE solutions is growing rapidly across many industries. OEMs and designers in automotive, IoT and appliance markets are leading adoption of IMSE because it is light, durable, saves space and opens new design possibilities for brands to differentiate their products. IMSE designs often include touch controls, lighting and antennas molded within a 2-3 mm thin surface, providing cosmetics, structure and electronic functions in a single part.
“TactoTek has a number of active customer projects in the region surrounding Ulm,” noted Sami Hyyryläinen, TactoTek SVP of Field Operations. “IMSE solutions remove design constraints of traditional electronics. To help our customers realize the full benefits of IMSE technology and move quickly from concept to mass production, we work in close partnership on design and development engineering. Having technical staff in Ulm makes that collaboration even more effective and convenient for our customers, and we are recruiting additional Application Engineers and Project Managers now.”
