Flexible Electronics

Specializing in the designing and engineering of flexible and printed electronics.

Overview

We specialize in the designing and engineering of flexible and printed electronics.

Copper Flex Circuits

These simple systems are designed to reduce interconnections and eliminate the margin for human error common in traditional wire assemblies.

Printed Force Sensitive Resistors

A flexible material that fluctuates its resistance when a force or pressure is applied.

Silicone Rubber Keypads

The technology utilizes the compression molding properties of silicone rubber to which upon depression of the switch the webbing uniformly deforms to produce a tactile response.

Flexible and Printed Electronics Manufacturer

The Internet of Things (IoT) is generating a demand for the networking of physical objects with embedded sensors to collect data for both commercial and personal applications. And as a result, industrial OEM’s are in search of innovative technologies to support this demand with flexible and printed circuitry solutions. At The Cubbison Company, we specialize in the designing and engineering of flexible and printed electronics for prototype research and development projects and on commercially viable production runs.

  • Lightweight, portable, stretchable and can even be disposable if need be
  • Flexible electronics are designed and being utilized in the wearables industry, including for healthcare and medical applications
  • From versatility to practicality, developments in flexible electronics provide innovative form factors and features

Copper Flex Circuits

The flexibility of copper flex circuitry allows unique connectivity challenges to be met with ease, as well as size restraints. Installation and maintenance are fairly simple and the removal of connectors and solder joints further reduce the cost over the lifetime of the solution. We ensure the highest quality product by putting copper flex circuits through rigorous testing prior to the assembly of components, avoiding costly and timely reassembly. These simple systems are designed to reduce interconnections and eliminate the margin for human error common in traditional wire assemblies.

Why Copper Flex Circuits?

  • Improved heat dissipation and flexibility, paired with the overall simplification and enhanced appearance of the internal electronic package
  • Lightweight and thin design makes copper flex circuits the best choice for flexible applications that require millions of flexures and weight reduction when compared to wire harnesses
  • Engineered in Polyimide by Kapton, Polyester by DuPont, Mylar, PEN by Kaladex/Kalidar, and ULTEM by GE

Printed Force Sensitive Resistors

Boosting affordability and the ability to operate with ease, a force sensitive resistor (FSR) is a flexible material that fluctuates its resistance when a force or pressure is applied. Ideal for human machine interface (HMI), control interfaces, medical, safety, recreational equipment applications, and variable input and output devices, FSR provides the opportunity to detect physical pressure, squeezing, and weight. At Cubbison, we print a carbon-based ink and a conductive silver ink on PET, and separate them by a spacer that goes into each build, which can accommodate a variety of configurations.

Why Printed Force Sensitive Resistors?

  • Low cost solution delivering ease of use
  • Material adjusts its resistance when a force or pressure is applied and can detect physical pressure, squeezing, and weight
  • Accommodates HMI, control interfaces, medical, safety, recreational equipment applications, and variable input and output control

Silicone Rubber Keypads

Our silicone rubber keypads are used in both consumer and industrial electronic products as a cost-effective and reliable switching solution. The technology utilizes the compression molding properties of silicone rubber to which upon depression of the switch the webbing uniformly deforms to produce a tactile response. Silicone rubber keypads are comfortable to use and are both waterproof and dustproof. The Cubbison team works with you to determine the components required to meet your exact needs, including tactile feedback, color printing and three-dimensional variables.

Why Silicone Rubber Keypads

  • Affordable and versatile option that’s waterproof and dustproof
  • Enhanced options, including multi-hardness materials, laser-etched graphics and choice of finishes, including high-gloss
  • Superior comfort featuring soft keys and a smooth appearance
