EMI AND RFI SHIELDING
We Now Offer EMI and RFI Shielding
Rapid Finishing utilizes a variety of liquid-based coatings consisting of copper or nickel depending upon the project’s requirements. These coatings are typically applied onto plastic housings or enclosures that surround the device or component that is producing the EMI or RFI interference. The shielding process is very similar to our liquid paint process and we have the ability to complete the total shielding process in turnaround times that are second to none in the industry.
Rapid Finishing has worked with many industries that are in need of EMI and RFI shielding. It is utilized in Telecommunications, Health Care, The Automotive Industry, Aerospace, The Defense Industry, Utilities and nearly in all aspects of electronics or industries that use or sell electronic devices.
EMI and RFI Shielding is a very effective yet economical way to reduce or eliminate this type of interference. Many industries, particularly Health Care, have strict regulations as to the levels of EMI and RFI waves emitted by electronic devices. Even the Food and Drug Administration is concerned about the waves interfering with the proper operation of medical devices and has put in place very stringent standards for many of the medical equipment used today.
