The Annual Manufacturing Forum 2017 (AMF’17) of the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) is featuring Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE). Join us to be inspired and connected by the array of innovations and business opportunities to be presented at AMF’17.

With the theme,
Innovating with Flexible Hybrid Electronics, SIMTech AMF’17 in its 12th edition brings together technology leaders and experts in FHE to share the global industry trends and developments that are driving the industry. 

The sessions include:

  • AM Session: Featuring Annual Manufacturing Lecture (AML) on the latest FHE technology - design, integration and applications, and keynotes on the 3 major trends in structural electronics, wearable electronics & Internet-of-Things (IoTs).
  • PM Session: Featuring keynotes on printed sensors technologies, applications and insights from FHE manufacturers.

A Panel Discussion, comprising FHE experts from industry and the research community, is organised to address your queries. 

FHE is converging macro- and microelectronics to re-define the future of electronics in portable and wearable devices. Roll-to-roll printing and in-mould integration of discrete components with electronic, and semiconductor inks on flexible and formable polymer substrates are complementing conventional electronic manufacturing technologies, to produce bendable and stretchable products for fast growing markets in IoT, wearable applications, flexible displays and many innovative products. FHE will be one of the key enablers to connect people and products seamlessly in a sentient environment. A new manufacturing ecosystem is evolving to support FHE manufacturing. It is forecasted that the market for FHE applications is nearly US$ 30 billion in a combined industry and consumer sector.
