Film-Insert-Molded-OLED (FIM-O) is a publicity funded joint project. Against this background BÖ-LA and its partners will be researching until the mid of 2015 on the integration of organic electronics in the form of OLEDs into 3D-formed and film-insert-molded plastic components.
During the Fakuma we present the final component of the joint project - a self-luminous FIM O Navigation panel with integrated OLED lighting. At the same time an OLED gets front-injected using the FIM process and a decorative 3D formed hardcoat film is rear-injected. In just one operation the result is a self-luminous, foil decorated plastic part with integrated OLED illumination.
With this innovation, BÖ-LA, a pioneer of FIM technology, will also become the forerunner in the further development of printed electronics to Film-Insert-Molded-Electronics.
