AMETEK Hamilton Precision Metals is expanding its manufacturing capacity to meet a rising demand for precision foils within the electronics sector and other key industries globally. The business recently added a third metal foil rolling mill in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As the demand has risen over the past three-to-four years and shows no sign of slowing, Hamilton Precision Metals has also increased its production capacity. The company invested in a new rolling mill and additional operators to enable more rapid production times and to ensure that orders can be fulfilled in as short a lead time as possible.
Hamilton Precision Metals’ specialty, ultra-thin foils are made from high-performance alloys including Constantan, Evanohm®, and Nickel 270. The foils are reduced in thickness down to gauges of 5 microns, 3.8 microns, and 2.5 microns to meet exact customer specifications. Advantages include ultra-smooth and clean surface finish for bonding, low level of pinholes, and ultra-tight thickness control.
