Thin-film circuits can be applied to flexible polyimide substrates making them capable of being bent and shaped considerably without impact on circuit performance or reliability. As such, the combination of flexible material and thin-film circuit geometries is leading medical designers to consider how far they can go in an attempt to enhance their sensors for advanced procedures, and improved patient [...] Read More

When that call comes in there are only a few companies in the world who can handle it. In fact, these circuits often have feature sizes ranging from three to ten microns and can consist of six or more layers. At Metrigraphics, we call them ultra-miniature flex circuits and they often need to hold up under extreme conditions such as in aerospace applications, and perform in such adverse environments [...] Read More

Metrigraphics’ thin film process is a fundamental technology uniquely suited to the task of making miniature circuits with extremely small and uniform features that have extremely consistent electrical performance throughout. The process also tends to be much faster and less wasteful than subtractive manufacturing methods like chemical etching. That’s because only the conductive material [...] Read More

While many factors will enter a decision, on the basis of pure precision, electroforming excels. Additional advantages include layering options (electroformed metal can be molecularly bonded together) and the ability to introduce different substrate materials to produce complex structures. Common components include: nozzles, slits, clips, screen, mesh, embossing tools, and encoder disks, used in medical, [...] Read More
