Wire laying technology

Elementary technological processes must be continuously developed to meet the growing demands of the market. Simpler application processes and expanded application areas support companies in more efficient and cost-effective production - this also applies to wire embedding technology.

Wire embedding technology has already been considered a versatile technological process used in numerous industries for several years. Typical applications of wire embedding systems include, for example, the production of heatable functional clothing, heating foils for vehicle covers or evaluation electronics such as torque sensors. On flat surfaces, 2D wire laying technology can be used for this without any problems. Uneven surfaces, on the other hand, present users with great challenges - here we at ruhlamat have provided a remedy with the development of 3D wire laying technology and set new standards.

We at ruhlamat have been working on optimising wire emebdding technology for different industries and requirements since 1997. Since recently, we have been offering not only reliable ultrasonic wire laying systems for 2D applications, but also a special 3D wire laying technology. This was originally developed as a way of producing antennas for smart cards and RFID inlays quickly and cost-effectively. We quickly expanded the range of applications so that the production method is now also used in the manufacture of headlight heaters. Other car body parts can also be provided with 3D-laid wire structures.

Wire embedding technology

The 3D wire laying technology is particularly efficient and gentle on the material: with the help of a robot, flat and uneven surfaces are covered with high precision so that neither the wire itself nor the components can be damaged. This innovative method can also be used as a stand-alone solution or integrated as a module in a production system. Currently, there is a great demand for heatable plastic surfaces, especially in the automotive industry, for which wire laying is predestined. Accordingly, we want to further expand our services in the future, especially with regard to the automotive sector. In addition, we are developing other industry-specific solutions based on innovative wire laying technology.
