SlimShield Low-Profile, Shielding from Tech-Etch
Low-profile shielding.
Plymouth, MA — Tech-Etch is introducing its new SlimShield, a low-profile, two-piece board-level shielding line with a dimpled cover that snaps into etched holes on the fence and offers shield heights as low as to 0.060-in. (1.5mm). The photo etching process provides complete design freedom and fast delivery.

Standard dimple tooling offers variable dimple location with excellent cover retention at very low cost. There is no tooling cost on standard two-piece designs. An optional flange for added rigidity is available on larger fence designs.

Multi-cavity designs are achieved by incorporating internal fences enabling multiple components to be shielded with the same part. Mounting pins are offered in any configuration. There is no additional cost for holes and slots for heat dissipation, as well as logos and part numbers. A configurable PDF sales drawing for the new low-profile board level shields can be downloaded from the website. The company also offers economical, standard one-piece designs with depth-etched bend lines for easy hand forming, as well as standard two-piece designs that utilize a spring-finger style attachment between fence and cover. Custom designs offer unlimited possibilities for materials and shapes. Product engineers can help you develop the best design for your application.
