tesa - partner to the electronics industry for over 60 years

tesa - partner to the electronics industry for over 60 years tesa, a world leading exponent of adhesive tape development, has been offering adhesive solutions for use in electronic devices for over 60 years. As early as 1952 tesa's double sided tapes were used in the early calculators to cushion vibration and dampen noise and tesamoll was used in the same way in production of TVs with the foam-backed adhesive tape absorbing both noise and dust.

Of course, this was a time when electronic devices were not the modern multifunctional wonders that let users talk on the phone, take pictures, listen to music and look for friends in virtual landscapes all at once.

The tesa product range for the electronics industry now encompasses about 150 items, with 75% of these introduced in the last three years.

In today's fast-moving communications arena, wireless technology is amongst the 21st century's most important advances. And with it, the trend toward smaller and smaller products is continuing unabated. Mobile devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras, and PDAs continue to become smaller, smarter, lighter, and represent a core market for tesa.

For example, tesa products secure many of these devices' tiny electronic components, elements of their exterior casings, and parts of their visual presentations firmly and permanently. Other tesa products provide greater efficiency during the assembly process, which for many electronics products is still mainly carried out by hand. And still more tesa solutions ensure optimum protection for components during the production process, keeping them safe from scratches, humidity, and more.

Today, mobile phones are everyday consumer electronic devices that must integrate an ever broader range of multimedia features.  Miniaturisation is one of the key drivers of this dynamic industry and the substitution of conventional mechanical connections with space-saving alternatives is one of the major challenges.  Design engineers are also faced with the constant demand for new, innovative fastening solutions in line with modern technological trends.   The tesa assortment of tapes is customised for demanding mobile phone applications and certified to international quality standards.  Applications include window/lens mounting, earpiece mounting, dome switch mount and LCD cushioning, to name but a few.

tesa adhesive tapes have marked advantages over adhesives and mechanical connections. It is almost impossible, for example, to apply liquid glues and adhesives evenly to complex geometric forms. Adhesive tapes are also efficient, dependable replacements for mechanical means of affixing components, such as screws and clamps, because tapes require less space, are lighter, less expensive and simplify the assembly process. Being a global player within the TV market, tesa continuously strives to bring new products, new technologies, components and solutions to the customer, all in line with high quality standards of its products and production methods that respect the environment. Also tesa is introducing to the market its newest technology and latest state-of-the-art products - tesa ACXplus E-Line.
