VALUE ADDED SERVICES
Ferro has over 20 years of experience in designing and manufacturing thick film materials and products formulated specifically for high temperature co-fired ceramics (HTCC) applications. 

Successful processing and firing of multilayer co-fired structures utilized in various sensors requires knowledge of dimensional stability during layer build and printing, shrinkage during firing, and the necessary firing regime to ensure that flat, blister-free parts are produced.  Our customers can leverage our prototype-building equipment and expertise in these processing aspects.  

We also provide training at our own facilities or on-site at our customers’ locations, with comprehensive programs that cover most aspects of sensor manufacturing including materials, equipment, prototype building, testing and evaluation processes.
