We live in a smart world. We have more and more intelligent
and interconnected devices and home appliances designed to make our lives easier in an intuitive
way, but without sacrificing design.
only, according to a
study conducted by Haier, 25% of households have opted to purchase a smart
appliance for its functionality and convenience, and because it helps to
improve the quality of life of users. However, above these reasons has been
another, especially during the last year: energy savings. Home appliances
absorb around 55% of household electricity consumption, and in 2022 the price
of electricity has registered record figures in Europe as a whole.
All these reasons have led the main manufacturers in the home appliance sector to redouble their commitment to smart appliances and to integrate smart applications and functionalities aimed at optimizing energy consumption.
this challenge, the consumer electronics industry relies on core technology
partners capable of creating efficient, fully functional, integrable and
uniquely designed solutions.
Plastronics for home appliances
Walter Pack has taken advantage of its expertise accumulated over the last decades in the
demanding automotive industry to consolidate its position as a reference
supplier in the home appliance sector and to provide innovative solutions with
high added value. Its value proposition revolves around the integral management
of the projects in which it is involved, from the design to the production of plastic
parts with integrated electronic components.
turnkey solutions combine cutting-edge design and maximum functionality thanks
to technologies such as plastronics, which incorporates electronic circuits in
flexible polymers from organic and hybrid materials, and In-Mold-Electronics
(IME). IME integrates electronic functionality and even hybridization of
electronic components in films that, once thermoformed under high pressure, are
introduced into the injection mold together with the decorative insert, and
provide decorated parts with electronic performance.
of flexible electronics is a competitive advantage in the smart home appliance
sector because it helps to design components that are much lighter, stronger,
and more malleable, and to integrate them into parts with a very elaborate
geometry and a unique design.
Thanks to these technologies Walter Pack makes electronic boards, control panels, indicators, cutting-edge lighting systems and all kinds of solutions aimed at serving the broad ecosystem of consumer electronics, the IoT universe and, of course, automotive.
components produced by Walter Pack can incorporate the electronic elements that
provide all kinds of functionalities to these sectors, including energy
savings. And they do so with a design that meets the requirements and specifications
of the brand, in accordance with regulatory standards and with respect for the
