Whether you need assistance, with new product development and prototype parts, or full production runs of manufactured product, we have the experience and capabilities to support your thick film needs. Through our relationships with partners in Asia we can offer high volume production with the savings of manufacturing in low cost countries.
We are innovators in the design and use of thick film materials and processes in low cost, high performance heat and resistance applications on ceramic, insulated aluminum and stainless steel substrates. Custom designs of heaters, resistors and heat spreaders can be fabricated in almost any two dimensional shape from a variety of ceramic, aluminum and stainless steel materials. The low profile and excellent thermal coupling of thick film heaters can, in many cases, outperform either cartridge or wire wound heaters and often at the same or lower cost.
Innovative materials to support the manufacturer of unique ceramic structures and fine electronic ceramics through our line of Carbon and Ceramic based pastes and tapes.
Our Ceramic Tape based setter sheets are used throughout the world at industrial and research organizations to improve firing characteristics of fine ceramics in the military electronics, ferrite magnetics, and medical electronics fields. Our products are also seeing use in the fields of powder metallurgy and metal injection molding to protect surfaces during the sintering process.
Using TFT setter sheets as dividers between stacked parts allows furnaces to be loaded more efficiently while protecting the surface finish of unfired ceramic products and preventing sticking of products to each other or to kiln furniture.
Please contact us with your application. We will be happy to provide a complimentary 30 minutes of free consulting regarding your application to help you determine if a thick film approach is what is needed.
