Printable tags turn everyday objects into smart devices

Printable tags turn everyday objects into smart devices
Engineers have developed printable metal tags that could be attached to everyday objects and turn them into 'smart' IoT devices. The metal tags are made from patterns of copper foil printed onto thin, flexible, paper-like substrates and are made to reflect WiFi signals. The tags work essentially like 'mirrors' that reflect radio signals from a WiFi router. When a user’s finger touches these mirrors, it disturbs the reflected WiFi signals in such a way that can be remotely sensed by a WiFi receiver, like a smartphone.

In-mould electronics become commercial once again

In-mould electronics become commercial once again
Conductive inks are a wonderfully adaptive technology, this characteristic has enabled them to stay relevant and to rejuvenate themselves over the past several decades, as old markets have struggled or declined the technology has managed to find new uses. Several years ago, a new frontier called in-mold electronics (IME) started to emerge, this frontier is once again becoming commercial. Author: Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Research Director, IDTechEx

Imprinting cables and wiring as fast as a hunting lion

Imprinting cables and wiring as fast as a hunting lion
Did you know, that when a lion is hunting it can run at speeds of more than 60km/h. Modern cable extruding machines operate at a similar pace. The problem: marking systems run the risk of creating bottlenecks in production. The solution from Paul Leibinger, KG: JET Rapid –one of the world's fastest continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers, that can keep up with speeds of up to 1,000m/min. Its users include cable manufacturers such as HUBER+SUHNER from Pfäffikon in Switzerland.
