The consumer market is evolving. More information, increased capabilities, greater accessibility, and better connectivity require more intelligence in smaller and lighter devices.   

This trend started by introducing the first PalmPilot and wearable device. The consumer desires biometric sensing or intelligence in the palm of their hands for easier access to knowledge and the world around them.

Flexible Circuits provide the versatility to increase technological capabilities to deliver on the consumer's evolving innovations and interests. We are working with OEMs to create greater technological access and increased connectivity throughout your whole life, smart devices, household appliances, AI, and more. Tight spaces, curved surfaces, smaller flexible batteries, and data analytics desire have led people to use Flexible Circuits.       

Sheldahl has been innovating since the beginning, creating solutions to problems that have sent people into space, improved communications throughout the world, and delivered intelligence into the palm of your hand. Our engineered materials have opened the door for your devices to be more flexible, versatile, and reliable, taking the possibilities to new heights. Our diverse materials, capabilities, and experience in flexible technologies provide you the best partner for innovations.

Human Machine Interface is a key component in your home appliance and workplace equipment operation. Due to device and machinery development, HMI's evolution has changed our expectations of how we interact with our homes and workplaces. Touch sensors must provide ease and assurance in the technology that you interact with within your daily lives. 

Flexible Printed Circuits provide an adaptive solution that is versatile and cost-effective to build the circuitry required for operation, creating a smoother communication stream from user to appliance and machinery. Their connectivity creates fewer connection points, decreasing potential locations of machine failure.  

Sheldahl's material solutions enable a higher quality HMI experience with a more responsive touch on any surface, flat or curved. Utilizing our material know-how, we create solutions that make the ever-changing home and workplace environments possible. By working with our diverse portfolio of materials (PEDOT, ITO, Nano Silvers, Silver Carbon, Etched Copper, etc.), our flexible technologies provide durable solutions, enabling better connectivity between people and machines.
