At SelectConnect Technologies, we encourage you to think outside the box and let us help you transform your creative designs into electro-mechanical components.
SelectConnect Technologies offers electro-mechanical fabrication services using laser direct structuring (LDS) process followed by electroless copper, nickel, and immersion gold metallization to produce three dimensional molded interconnects (3D-MIDs).
Our capabilities enable designers to have maximum freedom while saving space and being cost-efficient. We take extra pre-cautions to make sure that the plastic material you would like is a good match for your trace specifications. Using a CAD file and a laser tool we can print an electrical pattern on a doped plastic mechanical structure which can be electroless plated to create the circuit/pattern. We offer design, prototyping, and production fabrication services. You can redesign electro-mechanical components to achieve miniaturization and improved component reliability.
SelectConnect Technologies offers two methods to metalize three dimensional molded interconnects. These include Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) and electroless plating of double shot molded plastic components. While the LDS process uses a laser tool to activate a circuit path on a single-shot molded substrate, the 2-shot process uses two contracting plastic materials with the second shot providing the path for our selective electroless plating process to create an electronic trace.
Applications include, but are not limited to: antennas, automotive components, medical electro-mechanical devices, military and aerospace components, RFIDs, security shields, sensor packaging, touch sensors, and EMI/RF shielding.
SelectConnect Technologies will continue to expand and revolutionize the world of electro-mechanical components. With our passion to help you accomplish your ideal design goals, we put in long hours to make sure your product is at the highest level of quality. Whether you have prototypes or production work, we will make sure you receive the best from our end. We are a group of dedicated professionals that always strives to improve and discover solutions to make our customers’ needs a priority.
