Art meets science in Molex custom soligie flexible printed sensor solutions

From concept to prototype to high-volume manufacturing, integrated Soligie electronics streamline R&D and deliver faster time-to-market

Molex expanded its printed electronics portfolio with the recent acquisition of Minnesota-based Soligie. Soligie solutions provide a robust and economical alternative to a rigid printed circuit board (PCB) or copper flex circuits in sensor applications for medical, industrial, consumer, defence, and other industries.

“Smart sensor products demand smart manufacturing methods. As electronic packaging continues to shrink in size, while ramping up in sophistication, customers need highly functional and cost-effective circuitry,” states Todd Hester, vice president and general manager for Molex Printed Circuit Products. “We provide early stage Soligie technology development with a clear path to high-volume manufacturing.”

Molex partners with customers and strategic suppliers to ensure Soligie materials and processes scaled to their functional requirements. Services include Soligie sensor design and process development, prototype fabrication, product development, commercialisation and manufacturing. A framework of stringent quality systems ensures regulatory compliance, including ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 certified, and maintains compliance with FDA Current Good Manufacturing Processes.

“Our customers can now see their unique product innovations manufactured faster than ever before,” adds Hester. “Whether the goal is to make a product lighter, thinner, more flexible or to bring an entirely new concept to life, Soligie flexible printed technologies deliver the right sensor solution.”
