The advent of capacitive touch sensors in devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs is leading to a new group of printed electronics applications that include molded plastics. Capacitive switches are more reliable than mechanical switches because they have no moving parts to wear out or fail. The ability to print the controls on a flat surface and then mold them into the 3D interior parts of devices and automotive electronics helps reduce the overall space and weight of the final device. In-mold products typically require materials such as polycarbonate substrates and notable PTF conductors designed for flexible substrates. For example, silver conductors must maintain good adhesion and low resistivity after the substrate has been crimped. In-mold electronic inks allow designers to print electronic components onto plastic. Applications such as touch controls and lighting can be instantly integrated into plastic parts by printing circuits directly onto plastic sheets, which are thermoformed and injection molded. This allows the electronic controls to take almost any shape, while getting closer to the surface for the strongest signal.

In-mold electronics have various advantages over their standard counterparts. They are approximately 50% lighter than standard electronic devices due to the absence of mechanical buttons and switches. Fewer parts and manufacturing steps make the in-mold electronics production process simpler and more efficient. Additionally, assembly of parts in conventional electronics is a time-consuming process, which is eliminated in in-mold electronics. In in-mold electronics, assembly is a one-time, snap-together process, which dramatically reduces assembly time while improving reliability and serviceability. Additionally, in-mold electronics enable design freedom by enabling the design of modern 3D smart surfaces with continuous surfaces. In-mold electronics integrate flexible circuits and electronic elements into three-dimensional molded plastics. By printing circuits directly onto plastic substrates, product designers can combine touch controls, lighting and antennas in applications such as clothes dryers, refrigerators, washing machines, automotive consoles, switchboards dashboard, steering wheels and armrests. A molded electronic control panel eliminates the complex, thick, and solemn multi-layered assemblies that are typically part of traditional electronic designs; therefore, they can be as thin as 2mm.
