Additive manufacturing process and integrated electrical activation of new piezoelectric plastic components for sensor development
To take advantage of additive manufacturing to simplify the production of parts with sensors that generate an electrical signal when they come up against mechanical pressure. Sensors will be manufactured at the same time as the part, instead of being integrated later.
The steps to manufacture the sensor will be reduced from six to one and it will be produced using just one machine. This will bring versatility to the applications and an improvement in the design of parts, delivering a solution for different sectors, such as the toy, sport shows, medical, electrical and electronic industries.
