Frequency Selective Shielding

Q5D has the only process capability that can work at large scale on aerospace components. Frequency selective shielding has many applications from cleaning hand-held or wi-fi signals to stealth technology. The shielding is made using a conductor patterned with a repeating motif. Multiple layers may be stacked in in order to improve performance. Current methods of manufacturing use metal foils or printed electronics. Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) is one such technique, but is requires highly expensive materials loaded with [...]

Near Field Communication

Near Field Communication of all kinds needs an antenna. In this instance the customer was seeking a way of simplifying the supply chain. The existing part requires a 5-step manufacturing process, with an injection moulding, and a stamped metal part glued together. The conductor is then being cut and spring contacts spot welded onto the tracks. Q5D was able to demonstrate how a single bare wire could be laid onto the injection moulded part despite the complex surface. With [...]
