Our Comprehensive Range of Solutions
We can bring your implantable device package design to life. Our expertise in precision machining titanium and other materials means we can meet and hold very tight tolerances. Our unique materials and manufacturing techniques allow us to optimize designs for small size, RF transparency and more. We’ve also helped to overcome rejection issues by designing devices using materials with a proven track record of implantable viability.
Whether it’s an implantable feed-thru for a spinal cord stimulator or a hermetic window for an endoscope that must remain hermetic after thousands of autoclave cycles, our proven ceramic-to-metal sealing technology, Kryoflex®, as well as our glass-to-metal sealing technology allow us to deliver components that provide rock-solid hermetic reliability. We specialize in custom configurations, but also offer a line of quick-turn, pre-designed hermetic windows and implantable feedthrus.
There’s more to a reliable hermetic package solution than a housing and connectors and we produce components to ensure a module’s long term viability. We manufacture: getter and lid solutions to prevent post-hermetic sealing build-up of contaminants including moisture, solder preforms that aid in attaching electronic circuitry, ring frames that become integral side walls of a hermetic package, and custom thermal spreaders that ensure heat from a chip or substrate is efficiently dissipated.
We provide high-speed laser welding, sealing and marking with consistent accuracy. For customers who wish to bring those capabilities in house, we also custom design and build laser welding, cutting & sealing systems. Plus, we offer a complete hermetic packaging solution with our state-of-the-art ISO Class 7 Clean Room that’s used for integration of components into implantable device packages, sealing of the device as well as packaging & sterilization.
In addition to final integration of electronic components into implantable device packages in our ISO Class 7 clean room, we also offer medical device packaging, tray sealing and pouch sealing based on your needs. Sterilization is done with low-temperature ethylene oxide, which is compatible with a wide variety of materials. These wash and pack services are available standalone or as part of our overall manufacturing process.
We offer innovative solutions and produce state-of-the-art products for Defense & Aerospace, Energy, Industrial, Medical and Optical Networking industries.
We’re not just a manufacturer; we offer our customers value added services to help them succeed when in-house capacity is not an option.
