IMSE Options for Buttons, Sliders and Haptics

We create innovative human machine interface (HMI) solutions for many industries with our In-Mold Structural Electronics (IMSE) manufacturing technology. Known as the perfect union of form and function, IMSE integrates printed, conductive inks with In-Mold Decorating (IMD).

IMSE Options for Buttons, Sliders and Haptics:

  • Measure, Zoom, Pressure Sensing
  • Radial Button
  • Slide Option
  • Wheel Button
  • Detent Control
  • Momentum Control
  • Haptics Control

    • Volume
    • Sound
    • Vibration

IME Features:

  • 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, lightweight, durable control panel
  • No cracks or crevices around buttons for dirt and bacteria to hide.
  • Eliminates need for bulky tech boxes.
  • Produces less waste, making the manufacturing process more environmentally friendly

IMSE Design Considerations:

If you are considering IMSE for your product, it is important to work with our experts from the beginning of your project, which can be just an idea you have, or your actual design. We will validate your design compatibility with IME.

The design considerations for IMSE closely mirror the design considerations for traditional IMD. However, it is best not to take an existing injection molded part and make it into an IMSE part, as the injection mold tooling will probably have to change. Existing mold tools will generally not work unless they were designed for in-mold decorating or IMSE.
