EMI Shielding and RFI Shielding: How Die Cutting Solves Design Challenges

Posted by Mark Swanson on Nov 14, 2017 9:25:14 AM

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is a man-made or naturally-occurring phenomenon that disturbs electrical circuits and disrupts electronic devices. The causes of EMI are numerous, and include both ambient sources and power quality problems. The effects of EMI can range from data losses and decreased performance to system failure and loss of life. By protecting electronic devices and systems against electromagnetic noise or crosstalk, engineers can mitigate these risks.

Die Cut Technical Papers for Electrical Insulation

Posted by Sam Frazier on Aug 19, 2016 9:44:43 AM

Engineers read plenty of trade journals and industry magazines. So when they hear the term “technical papers,” it’s only natural to wonder if the publications are reports, white papers, or magazine articles. Not all technical papers are meant to be read, however. In fact, some are designed for electrical insulation instead of professional education. These technical papers support precision die cutting and impart specialized properties for applications such as electrical insulation.

Die Cut Electronic Components for EMI Shielding and Environmental Sealing

Posted by Tim Weiss on Feb 25, 2016 7:30:00 AM

Electronic component manufacturers need die cut parts that are cost-effective to produce, easy to install or assemble, and that meet all of an application’s requirements. As electronic designs grow smaller and more complex, die cut products are serving multiple, critical functions. For example, a die cut gasket in a ruggedized electronic display may need to provide both EMI shielding and environmental sealing.
