State-of-the-art technology meets industry 4.0

Combining a thin foil and flexible, powerful organic electronics makes for unique application possibilities of our sensor foils.

Printed sensors in combination with organic electronics and conductive paths:

  • Flexible sensors detect physical properties such as temperature, sound, pressure, or more … 
  • Organic electronics amplifies and digitally converts signals
  • Conductive paths send signals to a computing unit for user output 

Industries and possible applications

Chemistry and petro chemistry

Detection of corrosion, deposits, cracks, …

Automotive industry 

Large scale temperature monitoring of battery cells 

Waste water industry 

Detection of deposits in pipes

Wind turbines and aviation industry 

Detection of structural changes or damages like cracks

Possible Usage: Ultrasonic measuring principle

Reflections of transmitted ultrasonic waves are used to obtain information about possible damage, deposits, or corrosion in structures.

graphics of our ultrasonic measuring principle:<br />
transmitted ultrasonic waves are used to obtain information about possible damage, deposits or corrosion in structures
  1. Waves are supplied via an ultrasonic source 
  2. Waves spreading in the medium
  3. Measurement of the signals via printed ultrasonic sensors
  4. Reflection of the ultrasonic waves on the back wall and/or structural defects
  5. Amplification and digitization of data
  6. Data transfer to the end user

Animation of the measuring principle – this is how Flexora’s ultrasonic sensors work.
