OptoFidelity and TactoTek Partner in Developing Automated Production Test Systems for Printed Electronics and Injection Molded Structural Electronics (IMSE™)

5/28/19 3:13 PM

OULU, FINLAND/TAMPERE, FINLAND (28 May 2019) – Today, OptoFidelity, a leader in robot assisted test automation for smart devices, and TactoTek, the global leader in injection molded structural electronics (IMSE™) solutions, announced that OptoFidelity is developing automated production test systems for IMSE parts.


OptoFidelity and TactoTek collaborated to develop the test systems to meet the specific requirements of in-mold electronics:  OptoFidelity bringing smart device test automation expertise, and TactoTek contributing IMSE expertise.

The OptoFidelity system tests part functionality and production process quality after each of four steps in the IMSE production process:

  • Decoration and electronics printing,
  • Component surface mounting,
  • Thermoforming, and
  • Injection molding.

“Measuring performance and functionality of printed multilayer electronics that are stretched during thermoforming requires new measurement methods,” noted Miikka Kärnä, Head of Operational Excellence at TactoTek, “the data from the OptoFidelity test systems supports continuous improvement in all phases of IMSE design and production.”

TactoTek works directly with OEMs, brands and their suppliers to develop IMSE parts from concept to being ready for mass production by TactoTek-licensed manufacturers. OptoFidelity’s test systems are available in the configuration used by TactoTek, or as custom solutions to meet each customer’s specific requirements. OptoFidelity is
serving customers globally, from its offices in US, Europe and Asia.

“We are very excited to be part of the industrialization of IMSE by applying our 10+ years of robot assisted test automation to develop test systems to meet the specialized testing
requirements of TactoTek’s smart surface solutions,” said Pertti Aimonen, CEO of OptoFidelity.

OptoFidelity will present its test solutions at TactoTek’s IMSE Days 2.0, June 4-7. https://tactotek.com/imse_days_20/
