Vacuum Metallization for the Medical Industry
In order to protect medical devices from electromagnetic interference, vacuum metallized conductive coatings are a cost effective viable solution. The challenge for competing technologies like conductive spray paint is mask design that limits the ability to prevent excessive paint overspray on to cosmetic visible surfaces. Unlike our mask design for vacuum deposition. Spray painted coatings by unskilled applicators can create inconsistent coating thicknesses which may affect a good part to part geometric fit. Vacuum metalized coatings do not require any assembly closure problems for fit. Metalizing inserts with a vacuum deposition process will not affect thread engagement unlike a paint build up within the threaded insert.
We’re able to apply a vaporized aluminum conductive coating with consistent coating thickness and low resistance for your medical device enclosures. Vacuum metallization with aluminum is lightweight, durable, environmentally friendly and an excellent emi/esd shielding choice for medical device enclosures.
Our goal is to develop “the perfect mask” for your part that will insure consistent mask lines from lot to lot. Our design engineering staff will design, develop, and fabricate a final mask design using modern design software and CNC machining capabilities.
Medical device manufacturers prefer to use our vacuum deposition process because it does not involve the use of a basecoat that may contain harmful VOCs. VOCs, volatile organic compounds that may negatively affect the environment and human health.
We’ve got you covered, and all you have to do is to just tell us where you want the vacuum metalized coating to achieve your desired results.
Since 1993, medical device design firms and manufacturing companies have relied on VTI to offer solutions to protect their diagnostic devices from electromagnetic interference while adding value to them in all aspects of total cost of quality, superior customer service, and managed just in time delivery. If you’re interested in exploring vacuum metallization for your medical devices, be sure to take a look at our free vacuum metallization production masking offer. We provide complimentary masking to ensure that EMI shielding of your device meets your expectations in sufficient quantities to satisfy your production demands.
