The applications for connector technology are almost limitless, and offer a real opportunity for innovation in different industries.
Linxens has been a supplier to the quartz watch industry for more than 10 years, with the company’s reel-to-reel manufacturing expertise offering a consistent level of quality, irrespective of production volumes.
Smart printer ink cartridges are a further application for Linxens connectors as manufacturers look to prevent the use of counterfeits. A chip is embedded within the cartridge and communicates its parameters to the printer via a contact module, enabling the printer to carry out authentication and to check performance.
In the field of healthcare, the addition of a chemical reagents to a single-sided Linxens connector turns it into an accurate medical sensor for blood analysis. This process provides an alternative to complex sensor manufacturing, thereby reducing costs.
By drawing on this same expertise, Linxens can also design and manufacture small copper-etched antennas for a range of specialty applications, such as the authentication of luxury consumer goods or the tracking of assets in harsh environments.
