ZSK innovation for the production of E-Textiles: ZSK PCB-Placement Device!
PCBs are automatically placed on fabric by a high-accuracy robotic feeder. The boards are stacked and stored in a magazine. They can be automatically integrated into E-Textiles by a ZSK embroidery machine.
The circuit boards are then fixed to the fabric by thread and needle. After the fixation of the PCB, the electrical connection can be embroidered by a conductive thread automatically. This way, electrical connections between different PCBs can be embroidered in a fully automatic and highly scalable way.
The embroidery machine can complete electrical circuitries including PCBs, sensors, actors, and tracks. E-Textiles can be completed automatically!
The PCB- Placement Device has been developed in cooperation with Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany. The PCBs can be individually designed and produced by BOSCH to custom project needs.
