How our technology capabilities have developed

Since the late 1980s, the consumer market for electronic products has been rapidly advancing, raising questions as to how at In2tec we stay up to date with the latest advancements in technology. With advances in consumer goods and developments in other areas of technology, such as processors and components, we understood that product design and form were being limited due to ‘traditional’ electronics being rigid, unable to flex or follow the contours of the real estate housing them.

Our focus quickly became the core requirements of what our customers were asking for. ‘What was their electronic requirement, and could we provide an alternative, innovative solution?’

To this day, we ask ourselves these same questions. With continuous investment in our R&D department, the benefit has been the advancement of our capabilities, achieving ‘printed’ flexible circuit assemblies that meet or exceed the currently available solutions and provide competitive advantage.

Our inspiration for innovation in flexible electronics

At our core, we are driven by a passion for innovation and a desire to create ground-breaking electronics solutions. What inspires our innovation is a combination of factors, including cutting-edge technology, emerging trends, and a deep understanding of our customers’ needs. We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in electronics by exploring new materials, developing new processes, and seeking out new applications. Our team stays on top of the latest developments in the industry and is always looking for ways to develop and apply them. Additionally, we believe in fostering a culture of collaboration and open communication, which allows us to draw on the collective creativity of our team members to develop innovative solutions. Ultimately, our passion for innovation and our commitment to staying at the forefront of the electronics industry are what drive us to create solutions that are both cutting-edge and highly effective.

Our commitment to consistently developing our capabilities

With the electronics manufacturing industry growing rapidly we continue to invest in R&D, carving out time for technology development, imperative to develop inspirational & pioneering advances.

Our investment in innovation has allowed us to develop capabilities that enable us to consistently deliver the cost-effective design and manufacture of Sustainable Flexible Electronics. We provide a solution to reduce viable components and materials entering the e-waste mountain by providing patented flexible electronics solutions that offer up to 100% recyclability.

With our drive for sustainable electronics, we are pushing for fundamental changes to achieve a circular vision and life extension for electronics. We do this by leading the way with our continuous innovation in flexible electronics solutions.

Flexible electronics, compared to traditional ‘hard’ electronics, offer inherently different properties in design, form, and materials from which they are manufactured. This in turn presents opportunities to allow circuit boards to be unzipped at their end-of-life and provide a sustainable solution.

Why work with In2tec?

Utilising our ReUSE® Highly Recyclable Electronic Circuit Boards means that a component’s usefulness does not have to end when the PCB it is mounted on has reached the end of its useful life. Components can be recycled or reused, no longer needing to go to landfill or be burned. As importantly, in doing so, valuable resources and precious metals do not need to be continually mined and depleted for use in original manufacture.

In creating a truly circular economy, by generating secondary markets in used components we extend their life beyond discontinued OEM parts, plus reduce the demand for illegal-market component ‘copies.’

Our design philosophy is that nothing is impossible. In2tec has been at the forefront of innovation in Flexible Electronics and Smart HMI for 20+ years. We started our work towards developing truly sustainable electronics in 2007 and ever since have continued our path to sustainability.

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.
