DuraTech Industries provides customized solutions for Injection Mold Electronics (IME). Known as the perfect union of form and function, IME integrates printed, conductive inks with In-Mold Decorating (IMD). Because of its design freedom, and ability to still meet functional needs, In-Mold Electronics (IME) is becoming more widely used over other switch technologies by user interface manufactures in industries such as home appliances, automotive, medical devices, retail, consumer electronics, defense, industrial and aerospace.

Our experts continually expand their knowledge of the emerging printed electronics technology, and can assist you on-site with adapting your In-Mold Electronics (IME) drawings or prototypes for mass production.

IME offers an array of features and benefits, such as:

  • Lower cost alternative to Membrane Switch technology as it requires fewer raw materials, and no assembly.

  • Unique, flexible design

  • Extremely reliable Capacitive Switch as there are no moving parts

  • Encapsulated circuit, sensors and other components.

  • The elimination of wires allows for a thin, control panel

  • Eliminates need for bulky tech boxes.

  • Produces less waste, making the manufacturing process more environmentally friendly.

  • RoHS Compliant and does not require use of lead

  • Significant reduction in exposure failures

  • Good for low current applications

  • Fewer parts and manufacturing steps

  • Combined with the In-Mold Decorating (IMD) process
