Datec’s Industry-Specific Thick Film Solutions

At Datec, our expertise cuts across multiple industries. Here are a few examples:

Medical Device

Datec developed a unique thermocoagulation device that achieved the same result as traditional cryotherapy. However, we made that possible with heat and without heavy gas canisters. This device is portable, lightweight, and has a long battery life.

Desk-Top PCB Manufacturing

This manufacturer needed a fast-acting, compact heating plate with an even thermal profile to enable its circuit board printer to cure and reflow custom printed circuit boards right from an engineer’s desk.

Automotive Heat Exchanger

Datec is providing this world leader in the supply of automotive components (including thermal management products) with leading-edge technology.

Simulation vs Real Product

Our thermal simulation capability provides designers with practical and useful feedback that helps determine the correctness and efficiency of a design before it reaches the manufacturing stage. We work with you to fully customize a thermal solution that will power your industrial design.
