Tech-Etch SlimShield is a low-profile, two-piece board level shielding line with shield heights as low as .060″. Shields have a dimpled cover that snaps into etched holes on the fence. 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, as well as no additional cost for holes and slots for heat dissipation, logos and part numbers. 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. A configurable PDF sales drawing for low-profile board level shields can be downloaded from the website.
Tech-Etch 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.
