Activity

A major public institution of higher education and a component of the UGA, a recognised research centre and a founding element of the Grenoble ecosystem, Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering and Management, Université Grenoble Alpes, occupies a leading position in the scientific and industrial community. On the subject of plastronics, Grenoble INP participated in the development of the MINT Chair, supported by the Grenoble INP Partnership Foundation and backed by Schneider Electric, whose objective was to bring to maturity a method for integrating electronic functions on 3D thermoplastics, in order to create hybrid communicating systems. The research work carried out led to the testing of several printing heads positioned on a 6-axis robot. The results obtained made it possible to remove obstacles, such as the accessibility of the areas to be functionalized, the miniaturization of the devices, and their adaptation to an industrial environment.
