EKTAFLEX Functional Printing Solutions

Flexography for IoT and security

A better way to make and protect things

The Internet of Things (IoT) will be powered by a vast network of devices gathering and sharing data – on everything from cars, planes, lights, phones and computers to agriculture, homes and human beings. We’ll need actuators controlling them; sensors collecting and sharing the data; antennas transmitting that information; and printed security features to verify authenticity.

What’s your thing?

The KODAK EKTAFLEX Functional Printing Platform has been successfully used to print elements of touch screens, antennas, sensors, displays and more. Perhaps you’re making:

Why Size Matters.

As we move further into the IoT, the ability to print ever-smaller features, at previously impossible resolutions, becomes critical. Why?

  • To fit more sensors on ever-smaller devices
  • To make features undetectable
  • To produce actuators more cheaply
  • To make packages smarter
  • To harvest more energy

With EKTAFLEX Functional Printing Solutions, you can print smaller, at higher resolution and with faster throughput on a wide range of substrates, from paper and plastic to metal foils, film and glass.
