From concept to placement, Laird has developed the expertise needed to deliver custom precision grounding contacts, battery contacts, and mechanical springs. Using the latest non-linear simulation techniques and multi-platform CAD modeling capabilities, we provide custom features that enable functional, assembly, and packaging requirements, which optimize customer product’s operational performance.For more information, view our handy PDF here
Not every design can be ‘off the shelf’; sometimes you need something custom, and that’s why we will work with you from start to finish to create a solution quickly and efficiently that enables you to eliminate the hazards of EMI while meeting all of your other design criteria. We provide full in-house tool and die design and manufacturing capabilities including CAD, CAM and the high-precision tolerances of wire EDM. From initial concept, design and prototyping, through pre-production, automated packaging and final delivery, we have the experience to complete your project on time and within budget.
Customized BLS solutions are available using a broad range of technologies, including combination products with absorbers or thermal materials to solve specific design challenges. Even more complex solutions are available with added welded contacts for ultra-low profile designs. We can also customize Drawn Can BLS designs to accommodate ultra-fast signal speeds and RF designs. These designs provide additional isolation at higher frequencies by eliminating the gaps in the corners of traditional BLS. Our design for manufacturability experience and finite element analysis (FEA) capabilities help you optimize your designs.For more information, view our handy PDF here
Integrating functional metal parts into handsets reduces the amount of components required overall, thereby accelerating time to market and further enhancing product reliability. These functional metals improve the structural integrity of the handset while serving other functional roles. From a grounding contact on the front display screen to the cover of the battery on the back of the device, the products include surface mount shields, battery contacts, doors, speaker covers, structural components, assembly clips and many other parts. With solid design and industry-leading manufacturing, Laird can satisfy any handset metal design requirements.For more information, view our handy PDF here
