News 04.04.2019

TactoTek® has recently announced that Nagase has signed an agreement to market and sell injection molded structural electronics (IMSE™) solutions in Japan. Nagase is one of Japan’s largest trading firms with a long history of introducing industry-leading products and technologies to Japan’s commercial markets.

“TactoTek has a strong commitment to building relationships in Japan that enable OEMs and their suppliers to evaluate IMSE solutions and integrate them into mass production products,” noted Sami Hyyrylainen, TactoTek SVP, Field Operations. “Nagase brings specific expertise and knowledge of manufacturing, along with deep relationships in market segments asking for IMSE solutions.”

Nagase is a materials and parts supplier for automotive OEMs and their suppliers who are among the company’s targets for IMSE parts. The partnership with TactoTek builds enables Nagase to bring complete IMSE solutions to their established customer base.

“Our customers are asking for smart molded structures — parts that integrate electronics within 3D injection molded plastics — because with those solutions they can achieve multiple design objectives, including styling and weight reduction in thin parts with shapes that conform with their design aesthetics,” stated Koichi Kawahito, Division Manager, Nagase Automotive Electronics Division. “We evaluated several companies and technologies to deliver what our customers are requesting, and TactoTek with its IMSE technology is the clear choice.”
