New Tech-Etch Website Shows it All
Website filled with products and capabilities.
Plymouth, MA — Organized to help design engineers specify components, the revised Tech-Etch website contains over 150 pages of details for three product areas: photo etched precision parts, EMI/RFI shielding, and flexible printed circuits.

Each product area is described and pictured, including sales and contact information, manufacturing technologies, material descriptions, and ordering information. New web pages describe and show examples of products manufactured for each industry. Slide shows in product areas contain additional examples of manufactured components.

The photo etching section details the manufacture of light-gauge parts from a wide range of materials, including elgiloy, titanium, copper alloys, tungsten, polyimide, molybdenum, stainless steels, and nitinol. The site explains how photo etching allows complete design flexibility, eliminates the cost of hard tooling and shortens lead times. Dimension tolerances are listed and forming, plating and heat treating capabilities are explained.

Free samples may be ordered from the line of standard products in the shielding section, including beryllium copper finger stock, wire mesh, metalized gaskets, connector gaskets, sheet and strip gaskets, conductive fabric, plus filters and vents. A complete on-line catalog of standard shielding products with gap ranges and line drawings can be viewed, and interactive PDF sales drawings can be downloaded for over 100 standard profiles. Interactive PDFs also enable engineers to design their own standard one and two-piece board level shields.

Flexible printed circuits are produced on polyimide substrates using advanced manufacturing processes. Tech-Etch specializes in circuits for medical devices, implants, diagnostic ultrasound, telecom, and patient monitoring. Capabilities described include SMT and through hole assembly, additive processing for higher density circuits, microvia sizes down to .001" diameters, formed leads for discrete contact and pressure connections, and selective plating enabling different attachment methods.
