The arrival of 3D CAD programs has revolutionized the way the electronics industry is able to detect areas that have static interference within product parts. Backed by today’s newest 3D software, advanced EMI/RFI shielding solutions by Orbel provide the protection required to successfully operate a piece of electronic equipment to FCC regulations.

3D CAD programs are able to design both one- and two-piece parts very quickly, creating a custom design that is sent electronically to plotting machinery, allowing for instantaneous photo-plotting before being sent to prototype production equipment. This process provides an upfront planning with finer detail on the print generated, allowing the engineer to proceed with confidence knowing that the shield will fit properly on the board the first time.

Made possible by the use of the industry’s most advanced 3D CAD systems, Orbel’s EMI/RFI shielding solutions include:

Orbel Board Level Shielding: Standard and custom-engineered BLS offers unlimited design flexibility for surface-mount and through-hole configurations. BLS can be customized with the following options to meet the demand of any EMI/RFI shielding application:

  • Unlimited shield sizes and material options
  • Multiple fence/cover retention methods
  • Variety of pin and surface-mount styles
  • Custom trace notches at no extra cost
  • Standard ventilation holes
  • Standard pick target for pick and place
  • Available in tape-and-reel or tray packaging 

Orbel Finger-Stock Gaskets: Available in a variety of beryllium copper finger-stock profiles, modified finger stock, contact strips, contact rings, metal connector gaskets, and fully customizable EMI/RFI shielding gaskets. All finger strips offer the industry's highest EMI/RFI shielding effectiveness, while Orbel finger-stock gasketing is ideal for repeated effective opening and closing applications where high attenuation performance and mechanical strength is required.

Orbel Conductive Fabric Gaskets: Ideal for the control of electromagnetic performance, Orbel's line of metalized fabric gaskets is manufactured from a resilient polyurethane foam core and wrapped with a durable high-performance nickel-plated copper-conductive fabric. Orbel offers over 100 standard fabric-over-foam gaskets in a wide variety of shapes and profiles. Custom modifications include cut to length, kiss-cutting, and miter cutting for frame-style gaskets.
