Enabling Innovation in Product Design

  1. Solving Customer Challenges with Materials Science

Our work is changing how the world connects – down to the molecular level. Watch Jim Toth, Vice President of Technology, discuss advanced development at TE.

Committed to Innovation in Materials and Manufacturing.  Today across TE, we invest in materials research and 3D-printing technology to strengthen our capacity to think big and move fast in ways that can help customers win in their markets – today and tomorrow. In our facilities around the world, our technologists, scientists, and engineers are partnering to make advanced connectivity and manufacturing innovation possible. Our Printed Electronics team is continuously developing materials and processes to print electronic components. The team in our 3D Printing and Prototyping Center is helping teams across the company achieve new design and production efficiencies. And our Enterprise Technical Center Materials group offers a proprietary platform of high performance conductive plastics. These teams bring together state-of-the-art technology with expert know-how in injection molding, extrusion, 3D printing, and more. Everyday, we are working together to help customers turn emerging concepts into the next generation of transformative technology.
