Industrial production can begin with the automated positioning and contacting of SMD components.
There are still some barriers to a successful market entry of Smart Textiles despite good forecasts. These barriers include lack of reliability and accuracy, high manufacturing costs and low reproducibility. However, e-textiles will only become established once they are also suitable for mass production.
We are therefore working intensively on the development of automated production processes. Conventional machines which are used in the electronics industry for PCB assembly, have been modified during the research project. Therefore SMD components can now be positioned automatically and contacted on conductive textile surfaces.
