Flexible sensors to monitor your performance, motion and physical conditions, improve your training as well as prevent injuries. Integrated lighting for additional safety or self-heating jackets to increase your well-being. Organic and printed electronics stands for a revolutionary new type of electronics, which are thin, lightweight, flexible, robust and produced at low cost, from organic, polymeric or inorganic materials. The high degree of freedom of design requires a holistic approach in product design to enable this wide range of novel applications.
Fitness trackers, smart pharmaceutical packaging, adhesive solar films or steplessly dimmable windows: These are just a few examples of the applications that will be combined under the new focus topic Smart Living. LOPEC, the international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry, will thereby demonstrate the innovative opportunities that printed electronics offers to a wide variety of industries. The next LOPEC will take place from 24 to 26 March 2020.
In March, LOPEC took place in Munich with about 160 international companies. They used the opportunity to present a full range of products and solutions for organic and printed electronics, from research to market launch. For Lohmann’s (Neuwied, Germany) bonding engineers, too, printed electronics is a promising market which offers innovative product possibilities. Consumer goods & electronics, transportation, medical, intelligent textiles and packaging are the main focuses of printed electronics – areas in which Lohmann has decades of experience.
