TactoTek Licenses IMSE® Technology to Polestar for Sustainable Electronics

Polestar® , the Swedish electric performance car brand, and Finnish smart surface pioneer TactoTek®, have entered a collaboration to explore integration of Injection Molded Structural Electronics (IMSE®) technology into Polestar’s vehicle programs. The collaboration includes Polestar licensing TactoTek’s IMSE technology, products, and solutions to explore innovative lighting and human-machine interface (HMI) use cases.

Sustainable Innovation with IMSE

Exploring innovative and more sustainable solutions in the design phase is a testament to Polestar’s ambition to redefine the future of car design for the electric age.

IMSE parts are manufactured using clean additive processes. Because a single IMSE part typically performs the functions of a conventional multi-part assembly, designing for IMSE reduces complexity and streamlines global supply chains.

By seamlessly integrating electronics, such as lights and controllers, into thin conformal plastic structures, IMSE technology enables advanced lighting features and Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) that are both more sustainable and aesthetically appealing.

Fostering Design Innovation with OEM IMSE License  

Licensing TactoTek IMSE technology is an opportunity for OEMs to enhance their design differentiation. With its single piece construction, IMSE simplifies structures and significantly reduces weight, it also minimizes PCB assemblies and their negative environmental impacts. TactoTek's suite of technology transfer resources enables Polestar designers to incorporate the full range of IMSE technology, including decorative and brand illumination, into their newest designs. TactoTek CEO, Mr. Jussi Harvela, notes: “Polestar's licensing of IMSE technology is a testament to its significant sustainability benefits - with the potential to cut greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50%, our technology seamlessly integrates with Polestar’s vision of building sustainable solutions while delivering exceptional customer experiences.”
