GLASS-TO-METAL SEALS

Hermetic Connectors

Long-lasting protection from environmental impact.

Using glass-to-metal sealing technology, our products enable completely helium-tight electrical connectors. The connectors are a perfect fit for shielding high-vacuum, high-pressure, high-temperature, high-humidity or corrosive environments. Compared to other options such as epoxy sealing, the glass-sealing process greatly increases the robustness and environmental capabilities of these devices.

All our hermetic connector products are designed and built according to customer and application needs. A wide variety of options exist for the housing geometry, terminal pin configuration, material selection, as well as for plating.

Autoclavable connectors and feedthroughs.

Especially suited for medical tools and sensors, these hermetic connectors protect the device electronics during sterilization cycles. Glass-to-metal sealing technology enables a lifecycle durability and reliability that cannot be matched by other options. For critical products, we use our in-house developed precision furnace equipment to guarantee a superior level of quality.
