RFI/EMI Shielding is produced in many different shapes and sizes but the ever-steady march towards miniaturization means that they aren’t generally getting larger. Fotofab’s unique process is particularly well suited to making small things. For a standard formed can (without a trimming operation) we can produce shields with a minimum internal height of .024″(.61mm) with a maximum wall thickness of .008″ (0.2mm) and with a secondary trimming operation we are able to produce RF Shields with a minimum internal height of .010″ (.254mm) with a wall thickness of .008″(0.2mm).
Thinner or thicker materials may be specified for any shielding can but in general we recommend that you stay below .010″(.25mm) for small or low profile cans. It helps with bending but thinner material also takes up less space and has less mass.
