All Flex Acquisitions, LLC, a manufacturer of flex circuits and flex circuit assemblies, will present the product line including flexible circuits that are single sided, double sided, and multilayer up to six layers at the International electronics trade show “electronica” on November 11 to 14, 2008, in Munich (Germany). At booth 252 in hall C3 the enterprise, with headquarters and manufacturing site in Northfield, MN, US, presents flexible heaters – the new product highlight. All Flex announces a new capability in producing custom Flexible Heater Circuits. Flexible Heater Circuits are thin, lightweight and flexible substrates that can provide heat to selected areas of instrumentation, electronic systems, equipment, and a variety of other applications.
All Flex can reverse engineer, design and fabricate flexible heaters to meet customer’s exact requirements. Flexible polyimide heaters and heater assemblies are fabricated with a variety of metal alloys to deliver custom solutions for heating capacity, watt density, and other application specific customer needs.
“Designing, building and supplying flexible heaters on polyimide substrates is a natural extension of our existing product line technology”, said Greg Closser, President of All Flex. “We are responding to the requests of our rapidly growing customer base. Heaters utilize similar manufacturing and design capabilities as our flexible circuitry, and the benefits sought dovetail with current market needs. The All Flex expansion into heaters helps position us with the relentless electronic industry demand for more value in less space.”
Polyimide material and adhesive systems are appropriate in most any application that would be suitable for a flexible circuit; including exposure to harsh chemicals and corrosive environments, temperature extremes, aerospace & vacuum environments requiring low out-gassing, and applications constrained by limited space and weight for the heater. Because polyimide is light weight and flexible, heaters can be built in irregular shapes and conform to contours and 3dimensional patterns.
