|Additive Manufacturing Approaches for Customization and Personalization in a Connected Ecosystem|
|Keywords: Printed Electronics, 3d Printing, Connected Ecosystem|
|Digital revolution is all around us globally and connected communities, consumers are altering behavior. Connected devices as part of this digital transformation are getting ubiquitous. Such devicification leads to customised and personalised solutions enabled by additive manufacturing processes like 3d printing ie shoes and printed electronics ie consumer packaging and connected healthcare devices. The emergence of 3d printed electronics for PCB manufacturing also presents unique opportunities for integrating flexible hybrids to realize complex designs.These manufacturing technologies need materials (inks and polymers) and processes (inkjet, screen, powder based) that allow for opportunities where not only are the benefits of functional integration realized but potentially impact easier manufacturing processes, reduced assembly steps and materials and services management simplification.|
