touchskin® - a new type of instrument control

„touchskin“ stands for the integration of sensor technology in the surface of plastic parts moulded. The „sensor surface“ is created in an injection moulding process by back moulding foils with electrically functional coatings. In this way the operating keys, rotary- or slide controls can be embedded directly in the plastic parts. The process offers great potential in the realisation of innovative design concepts, the reduction of assembly costs and an increase in the operational reliability of the operating functions.
