3D-MID Technology

3D-MID (3-dimensional molded interconnect devices) technology makes it possible to integrate mechanical and electronic functions within one component in the smallest of spaces. The electronic circuit is integrated into the casing, significantly enhancing the compact design and functional density. Injection-molded circuit boards enable the process stages, assembly times and number of components to be reduced.

New possibilities for product innovations

  • Plenty of freedom in design
  • Miniaturization and weight reduction
  • Functional integration (3D conductor path structures, antennae, switches, connectors and sensor systems)
  • Reduced manufacturing costs due to fewer components and material savings
  • A shorter process chain and fewer process stages
  • Increased reliability

Application areas for 3D-MID technology can now be found in almost all markets and industries. The future-oriented, integrative application fields of mechatronics, sensor technology, optoelectronics and connectors are not the only areas with high demands when it comes to miniaturization. Safety-related applications for Industry 4.0 or smart wearables technology have to fulfill the most stringent safety criteria within the smallest of spaces. The Cicor Group cooperates with your customers to implement sophisticated and impressive products and solutions, from the initial idea right through to serial production.
