SGIA�s annual symposium explores emerging technologies in printing and production.
Jack Kenny, Editor08.05.09
Slowly, but deliberately and consistently, manufacturers turn to face the new technologies. In many industries throughout the world, they are asking themselves whether printed electronics has a place in their factories, whether they have a place in the PE industry.
The migration is happening in the membrane switch industry, having taken root several years back. Interest in printed electronics has evolved to actual practice in the field as more switch producers adopt new manufacturing methods, and more suppliers explore the boundaries of the technology.
The SGIA – Specialty Graphics Imaging Association – an industry organization based in Fairfax, VA, USA, represents the interests of many segments of the graphics business, among them those who produce membrane switches. In the early 1990s, SGIA launched the Membrane Switch Symposium, which has became an annual industry event, sponsored by the Membrane Switch and Printed Electronics Council.
