The PCBs are automatically placed on your fabric by the high-accuracy robotic feeder. The boards are stacked and stored in a magazine which can be automatically integrated into your E-Textile 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 fashion. The embroidery machine can complete electrical circuitries including PCBs, sensors, actors, and tracks. Your E-Textiles can be completed automatically! By using the PCB Placement Devices with a multi-head embroidery machine, upscaling and mass-production of E-Textiles is easy. 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 suit your custom project needs.
