3-D MID's bridge the gap between a circuit board, wiring harness and plastic part" Stephan Schmidt

3-D MID blog, the World’s premiere source for information regarding 3-Dimensional Molded Interconnect Devices (3-D MID) becomes wholly integrated into

SelectConnect Technologies is honored to be entrusted with the continuation of such a respected information source to the 3-D MID industry.

3-D MID’s are formed through a variety of methods. The foremost methods are Laser Direct Structuring(LDS) and the selective metallization of components made using the double-shot method.

According to Stephan Schmidt, President of LPKF USA – “3-D MID’s bridge the gap between a circuit board, wiring harness and plastic parts.”

Laser Direct Structuring is a process in which circuitry and/or antenna pattern are laser etched directly onto the surface of a thermoplastic molded component or chassis. The thermoplastic is “doped” with a compound that once laser activated accepts metallization creating a conductive path.

3-D MID’s help you:

  •     Reduce Size
  •     Reduce Assembly Times
  •     Reduce Complexity
  •     Increase Assembly Yields

3-D MIDs are essential elements for NextGen electronic components in Automotive, Antenna, Medical Devices, Military and Aerospace applications, Security Shielding and Sensor Packaging.
