Canatu participated at General Motors Switch Symposium


On 6 October2022 Canatu (Vantaa, Finland) was invited to the General Motors Switch Symposium in Detroit. At the event, the company presented its multi-award winning 3D touch technology. General Motors executives got first-hand experience in latest demonstrators featuring Canatu 3D touch in different automotive interior applications. This tech event enjoyed high attendance of over 100 visitors keen to hear the latest in cutting-edge switch technologies.

Canatu 3D touch sensors shape surfaces into experiences enabling design freedom and intuitive user experience. The company develops and manufactures 3D formable and flexible transparent conductive films and touch sensors for automotive OEMs and Tier companies. Canatu’s transparent conductive films have extraordinary versatile mechanical properties with extreme stretchability (>200%). With less than 1mm bending radius, the Canatu CNT film can be formed to exaggerated 3D shapes, and in-moulded for robustness.

- Stretchable (>200%)

- Formable (<1mm radius)

- Mouldable (robust)

Canatu’s unique technology enables touch functionality on any surface. The touch sensors can be discreetly integrated into the automotive interiors offering sleek and unobtrusive design. They are ideal for applications that require 3D form factor, high transparency (illumination), combined with high electrical conductivity.

Key applications of Canatu 3D touch include e.g. steering wheels, overhead consoles, and door controls.
