Print Directly on Aluminum with Datec Thick Film
Datec is leading the industry with the unique ability to print heating elements directly onto aluminum, offering a seamless fit into a wide-range of product footprints.
Our IntegrAL® heating technology produces fast, precise, uniform, and integrated heat to meet customer-demand for performance, reliability, and energy efficiency.
Our patented sol-gel thick film technology has 2-10x the watt density of other heating elements, like Kapton.
Thick film heating elements reach the exact temperature you need quickly and repeatedly.
Datec thick film heats consistently and evenly on aluminum, mica, glass, and steel.
Dependable heating with no hot or cold spots.
Thick film heating elements have low thermal mass and conserve energy without compromising performance.
Compact and portable, thick film technology has low-voltage options as low as 3.7 volts.
Our heating elements can be printed directly onto most substrates, saving space, materials, and cost.
With a max processing temperature of 4000°C, our heating circuits can be deposited on materials with low melting temperatures, such as Aluminum.
IntegrAL® Thick Film Aluminum-Based Heater
Our IntegrAL technology is comprised of patented dielectric, resistive and conductive thick film paste that we screen-print directly on aluminum to create an advanced thermal component.
The thick film heating element is printed directly onto aluminum, producing fast, precise, uniform, and integrated heat.
IntegrAL® Low Voltage DC Aluminum-Base Heater
We also offer Low Voltage Heaters for battery operated devices that deliver fast, precise and ultra-efficient heat.
This heating technology is ideal for portable devices where long battery life and fast high-powered heat is important.
Case Study – Leading Medical Device Company
A medical technology company needed Datec’s leading-edge technology to meet performance and reliability requirements.
The client required a medical device capable of providing life-saving treatments to individuals in remote locations.
The device needed to be reliable and reach the target temperature quickly and precisely but still portable enough to carry with ease.
Datec needed to create a heating element that could produce fast, precise, uniform, and integrated heat to meet customer-demand for performance and reliability.
Using our expertise in design, materials and printing, Datec created fast, efficient heating components that exceed the target time to temperature and efficiency of this hand-held battery-operated device.
Datec also provided a coating on the working side of the device to complement its heating system.
This portable, fast, and precise technology gives remote locations access to life saving treatments.
