SmalTec International, LLC, an up & coming Microtechnology Solutions Provider within the Small Technology Industry sector, now offers full service Micro-EDM Prototyping Solutions for its high-tech customers.
SmalTec International, LLC was founded in 2002, and has focused on being the exclusive Panasonic Micro-EDM Equipment Provider in North America. Today, SmalTec has expanded its offerings by providing full service micro-EDM prototyping solutions, a natural progression for the company in response to the incredible growth within the microtechnology industry. Today, although the "...possibilities of nanotechnology can become the realities of the future", as reported by Deb Newberry of the Small Times magazine on Oct. 8, 2004, real world applications within the nanotech sector are not mainstream. "The future starts here. SmalTec International was formed two years ago because microtechnology is the fast-growing discipline of the small technology industry", stated Jerry Mraz, General Manager/Vice President of SmalTec. "Next generation super-efficient fuel injectors, ultrahigh dpi inkjet printers, miniature satellites, micro-medical and dental devices, alternative fuel cells, etc., are being prototyped and engineered today. Demand to accelerate these high-tech concepts into localized mass production is exponential, which is why SmalTec now offers micro-engineering and micro-manufacturing services. Size does matter, smaller is better, and SmalTec has tomorrow's solutions, today!"
"Today's complex applications utilize traditional materials such as Stainless Steel, Brass, Nitinol, and Tungsten, as well as unconventional ones like Molybdenum, Tantalum, Platinum and Ceramics", said Mr. Mraz. SmalTec International's micro-machining capabilities and ultra-precise results are impressive, not to mention very small. The company provides the technology to accurately produce features, or entire parts, with micrometer (micron or um) dimensions to within +/- 100 nanometers (nm) tolerances. One (1) nm is one billionth of a meter or about one fifty-thousandth the diameter of a human hair. Holes as small as 5 um (0.0002") to complex micro patterns to true 3-D shapes are achieved utilizing SmalTec's latest technology. High precision machining can be done on curved surfaces, inclined surfaces and thin materials, which are very difficult to produce with other available technologies. A mirror finish surface roughness of 10 nm Rmax, or 2.8 nm RMS, can be achieved.
The Future Starts Here... By charting the way and offering leading edge true 3-D micro-scale machining solutions, micro-EDM and nano-precise measurement equipment, SmalTec International, LLC is today's new pioneer in the microtechnology industry. Industries benefiting from SmalTec's technology and offerings include Telecommunications, Medical, Aerospace, Micro- Milling & Molding, Automotive, MEMS, Nanotechnology and others. SmalTec International, LLC, a privately-held company, focuses on selling & servicing high-end microtechnology equipment, prototyping services and solutions.
