We can remove constraints

In2tec is a leader in Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions. For over ten years, we have designed and delivered products that combine boundary-pushing 3-dimensional circuitry in synergy.

Our HMI solutions facilitate the combination of style and functionality with significant size and weight reductions. These benefits only become possible by forming the electronics, sensors, and interfaces to flow seamlessly across the contoured surfaces of the real estate in which they must operate.

Flexible Electronics

Our contoured flexible electronics conform to a shape, instead of requiring the shape to conform to the electronics (one of the major drawbacks of traditional electronics such as 2D hard, or flexible substrate circuit systems).

Examples of this new, uninhibited design include the curved displays and touchscreens that have begun dominating the television, smartphone, and computer markets. Digital cameras are frequently designed with contoured electronics, cutting weight and bulk to ensure portability, alongside a design that intuitively places a variety of buttons and grips under the photographers’ fingertips.

Our custom-made flexible electronics go beyond looks, they allow brands to increase market share through product differentiation and permit innovators to think outside of the box, as the design is no longer inhibited by flat, rigid electrical components.

Conductive contouring

Using our conductive contouring technology, we aim to provide designers with the ability to form the conductive circuit to the shape of the product. This systematically creates product advantages in shape, weight, space, and overall cost, producing 3D complex curved conductive circuit substrates that break down design barriers.

Our proprietary complex modelling software provides calculated circuit layouts to create the exact electrical and physical properties your design requires, which significantly reduces electrical inefficiencies when compared to other circuit board solutions.

The complex curve assemblies provide ultra-light, compact interfaces which can combine illumination, SMT components, processor, and capacitive touch sensors on a single complex curved plane.

These HMI solutions can be applied across all sectors. By way of electronics, sensors, and user interfaces that trace the silhouette of real estate, we break down design barriers. It means HMIs can be formed and positioned for the optimum user experience.    

Our capabilities – driven by our design philosophy that “nothing is impossible”

At our core, everything we do is underpinned by the belief that “nothing is impossible”. To this end, we have developed a strength that allows us to bring together disparate and often conflicting design requirements, to provide systems and solutions that offer greater efficiency and better ergonomic design, through the breaking down of design and barriers and solving the most-challenging problems.

Moreover, our patented technology ‘ReUSE®’ provides material, models and process technology to deliver sustainable solutions that allow a truly circular economy and deliver a positive impact towards achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions. Using proprietary electronics design and manufacturing techniques along with patented ReUSE® conductive adhesives, inter-layer adhesives, printed inks and dielectrics, we can deliver printed circuit assemblies with 100% recyclability. This, together with ‘ReCYCLE™’ – In2tec’s patent-pending low-energy electronic component process and modules detachment process delivers fully reusable and undamaged components and materials for use in second-life. ReUSE® and ReCYCLE™ can deliver 100 % material recycling of its printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs). This contrasts sharply with typical PCBA material recycling of just 3-5 %.
