Metrigraphics, a leading process development and manufacturing resource for sub-miniature circuits and electroformed structures, is now featuring its latest micron-scale flexible circuits and thin film devices. Micron-scale flexible circuits can be achieved with six or more layers high with traces (circuit lines) as narrow as 3 microns (11.81 x 10 - 5 inches). Circuits are flexible and thin enough to wrap around objects with diameters as small as a pencil.
Metrigraphics, a leading process development and manufacturing resource for miniature passive circuits and electroformed structures, announced their recent move to Lowell, Mass. This move provides additional space to accommodate company growth and allow for greater advances in the manufacturing of their customers' products. The greatest benefits lie in the addition of the class 10,000 clean room and increased space dedicated to electroforming.
Metrigraphics addresses market requirements for tactical, critical communications with several circuit manufacturing and process solutions. Attendees at IMS2015 in Phoenix, Ariz. saw many of these offerings firsthand at the company's booth # 3312.
As today's battlefield gets more and more tactical, critical communications have never been more important. And as radios and subsystems are being pushed to become smaller and even more ruggedized, it’s causing a chain reaction right down to the circuit level. Where once rigid and thick film technologies were primary go-to solutions, today's military communication applications are requiring antennas to be even more flexible, circuits to fit into tighter spaces, and signal integrity at higher frequencies to be perfect. And to add to that, today soldiers’ vital signs are as closely monitored as a radar screen — it’s easy to understand the push towards advanced circuitry is tasking traditional thinking.
Metrigraphics, a process development and manufacturing resource for ultra-miniature passive circuits and structures, announced it has launched advanced 3D electroforming services. These services are an ideal solution for OEMs looking to integrate complex multilevel structures manufactured at an almost atomic level of precision — and who also require high repeatability and high yield.
Metrigraphics announced it has developed an advanced process for creating high aspect ratio components and microstructures. Precision electroforming can create dimensional, multi-layer microstructures with geometric options that are unlimited. Electroformed structures can include micro nozzles, clips, slits, micro screen, micro mesh, encoder disks, embossing tools, and more.
Metrigraphics, a process development and manufacturing resource for ultra-miniature, passive circuits and structures, announced it is now routinely achieving one-micron resolution in the photolithography service.
Metrigraphics announced it is now routinely achieving one-micron resolution in their photolithography service. Metrigraphics can provide these services to customers looking to fabricate ultra-miniature rigid and flexible circuits, ultra-miniature electroformed structures, and high-precision optical devices such as rotary discs, encoders and reticles. Image resolutions of one to two microns are achieved on substrates up to 12" x 12" (144 square inches) as well as linear patterns up to 85".
Metrigraphics, a process development and manufacturing resource for ultra-miniature passive circuits and structures,announced it has achieved breakthrough performances on key competitive benchmarks in the fabrication of precision optical components.
Metrigraphics continues to advance their process for applying metal layers to circuit substrates and to polyimide layers on multilayer circuits. The process works for both rigid and flexible circuits. Metallization layers can range in thickness from 10 microns to over 100 microns. Substrates can range up to 12" x 12" or 144 square inches.
