Automated Sensor Integration
Kurz Uses Functional Foil Bonding
The expert in hot stamping an coating technology Kurz, Fürth, Germany, demonstrates the FFB (Functional Foil Bonding) sensor integration process on a machine that was recently developed by its subsidiary Baier. This method enables touch sensors to be integrated into plastic components by fully mechanized means.
The process can be connected directly to the injection mold. The FFB machine can be integrated into component production lines, and can operate in both inline or offline mode. The FFB operation can be performed by machine operators or, to a large extent, automated, thereby providing an ability to cost-effectively integrate sensors in serial production. According to the manufacturer this integration solution also has advantages over conventional methods in regard to durability, which will help achieve the stringent requirements of industry.
