BCE Specialized Ceramic Metallization
Refractory Metallization, Brazing, Contract Firing
BCE has specialized in ceramic metallization since 1988. Their engineers and team combines for decades of experience in the research and development needs of the semiconductor and other high-tech industries. BCE performs precision machining and grinding services on ceramics and quartz. Materials are processed, measured and cleaned with state-of-the-art equipment by highly trained professionals. All parts are designed and fabricated to the customer’s specifications. We perform the following services on ceramics and quartz materials:
Hi-Temp Refractory metallization is the only solution for some packaging applications. Tungsten and Moly-Manganese metallizations have higher adhesion to the substrate than Thick-film metallization. This makes it the ideal process for Hermetic packages, Brazed lead frames and packages requiring high operating temperatures. BCE can screen print, spray or hand-paint these metals onto Alumina Oxide or Beryllium Oxide substrates. These patterns can be plated with Gold and Nickel or Gold alone. Once Gold plated, these surfaces are solderable and wire bondable with Aluminum or Gold wire.
Their batch furnaces are ideal for accurate brazing of small quantities and large. They can braze Kovar, Stainless Steel, Copper and Copper/Tungsten as well as many other metals to metallized ceramic. When the application requires, BCE can step-braze to combine several sub-assemblies into the final product. BCE has experience designing and brazing Pins and Sockets into holes, ring frames, lead frames and heat sinks.
BCE's furnace capability allows them to offer contract firing. Their controlled atmosphere batch furnaces can be used for large volume soldering, glass sealing, epoxy curing and Nickel and Gold sintering. Their programmable Cold Wall furnaces operate at temperatures up to 1500° C in a reducing atmosphere.
