Agreement to design IMSE solutions for automotive customers signed

 

TactoTek has announced that Faurecia has signed a licensing agreement to design and manufacture IMSE solutions for its automotive customers.

“Faurecia is investing persistently in ‘plastronics’ - integrating electronic functions into plastics and decorative surfaces - because it enables us to deliver the solutions our customers want for styling and controls into thin, lightweight, 3-dimensional parts,” noted David Weill, VP Marketing and Business Development, Faurecia Interiors.

“TactoTek IMSE is the state-of-the-art for designing and producing plastronics, and now that IMSE parts have passed several Faurecia’s key validation milestones, we are accelerating our development and marketing of IMSE solutions.”

While IMSE is disruptive technology that transforms how electronics are designed and built, by licensing its technology TactoTek supports the long-standing business relationships between OEMs and their suppliers.

TactoTek’s primary business model is licensing its IMSE technology to manufacturers who have the direct relationship with brands/OEMs. Each licensee differentiates their IMSE-based solutions in the marketplace with specific target use cases as well as their unique approach to industrial design, styling, integration and surface treatments. 

IMSE technology transfer to licensees is a close partnership and hands-on process tailored to each licensee’s capabilities and business intent. TactoTek develops custom training programs for each licensee to transfer the technology and know-how for them to become IMSE Ready - prepared to independently design and manufacture IMSE solutions.

“It is an honour to have Faurecia, the industry forerunner, as TactoTek’s first automotive IMSE design and manufacturing licensee,” stated Jussi Harvela, TactoTek CEO.

“Faurecia’s commitment to IMSE technology is a very important milestone for TactoTek that will expand OEM access to IMSE solutions worldwide.”
