Force sensing resistors


Force sensing resistor is highly sensitive to resistance when applied pressure. More the pressure applied, lower is the resistance.

Force sensing resistors are produced through printing technology so are very thin and flexible. Hence it is also called a flexible printed sensor or printed pressure sensor.

It can be customized easily with any shape and size.

Force sensing resistors is an emerging technology that has grown with an increased demand for wearable electronics and other devices. As these devices are very thin and lightweight, the need for such devices increases.

There is a wide range of applications for force sensing resistors. This is because of their thin and flexible nature, and the ease with which they can be integrated into various substrates.

In order to tailor print solutions according to your specific needs, our team use their knowledge, research as well as development at the interface between science and industry. Our R&D team has a solid understanding of the materials, processes and printing technologies that are essential for the development of flexible and hybrid electronic systems.

Developments by our team include Force sensing resistors. Force sensing resistors are an evolution of membrane switches and use a similar design principle. Force sensing resistors are highly sensitive to resistance when applied pressure. More the pressure applied to the surface of the sensor, lower is the resistance. They are widely used in industrial applications, including automotive sensors, computer input devices, interactive toys, medical dispensing, musical instruments and sports equipment to name a few.
