Abstract

A new and innovative approach is presented to integrate sensors in materials and set up “smart materials”. Semi-finished parts are functionalized by printed sensors and printed interconnects. These functionalized parts are then further processed to components. This is a new and simple approach to integrate sensors in a material. Two examples of printed sensors and the process of integration are presented. One is a printed sensor on carbon weaves, integrated in carbon fiber reinforced plastic. The other one is a sensor structure printed on an aluminum sheet and integrated during high pressure die casting. Besides the benefits of this technological approach, challenges are focused in the paper as well.
