Custom Force Sensors

The largest part of Wikon's business is the design and manufacture of fully custom sensing solutions for our customers. We are experts at taking a concept from initial discussion to millions of units shipped.

Our custom projects scale from simple modifications to our WPE range of single point sensors, perhaps extending a tail length or the diameter of an active area, through to full 3D Multi-Touch sensing solutions. What's more we can combine multiple sensor types, shapes and sizes creating highly integrated sensing systems, whilst reducing supply-chain & assembly costs and increasing durability in our customers' products.

Benefiting from full in-house testing and characterisation facilities including environmental chambers & ALT simulation, our teams in Canada and the UK have created hundreds of custom sensor solutions for customers worldwide. Our rapid prototype service delivers quick and cost effective support when project development time is limited. Contact us for more information about our custom force sensor capabilities.

Custom Capacitive Sensors

Being a printed electronics specialist Wikon offers multiple touch sensing technologies.

If your application requires zero-force-touch or proximity detection, typically under a non-flexible A-surface, a capacitive sensor may be the answer. Widely used in applications ranging from consumer products and white goods to automotive and peripherals, capacitive sensing is familiar to most consumers.

Wikon offers customers flexible and cost effective printed capacitive sensor solutions for small to medium volume applications. Our design and manufacturing teams can bring your sensor requirements to life quickly with minimal engineering and tooling costs. Of course we can also combine capacitive with other touch technologies such as force sensors and membrane switches for a fully integrated state-of-the-art HMI solution.
