Product Spotlight – Cho-Fab CFT

ps cho fab cft

Todays #ProductSpotlight focuses in on @ParkerChomerics product Cho-Fab CFT!

Cho-Fab CFT – Parker Chomerics CHO-FAB™ electrically conductive fabric tape is ideal for applications requiring lighter weight and a more flexible electrically conductive tape than metal foil tapes provide. CHO-FAB tape provides excellent EMI shielding and good corrosion resistance. In the case of shielded cables, CHO-FAB tape is very conformable, strong, lightweight, and doesn’t have sharp edges that are present on metal foil tapes. CHO-FAB tape provides an economical solution to applications requiring excellent electrical conductivity across substrates and offers a low-impedance connection between a braided cable shield and the metal connector back shell in molded cables.

Features and Benefits:

  • Made of fabric tape constructed from a nickel-plated silver conductive material
  • Available with single-sided acrylic electrically conductive pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA)
  • Lightweight and more flexible than metal foil tapes
  • Very conformable while maintaining strength
  • Excellent shielding and good corrosion resistance
  • Lacks sharp edges which are present on foil tapes

Ken Marino

Welcome everyone and thank you for joining us today for this Q&A session with Ken Marino, President at Orbel and HITEK’s Operations Director, Roger Dent. Ken brings a wealth of experience to the table, having been with Orbel for a 41 of  years. Today, we’ll be learning more about Orbel’s history, capabilities and how they can help customers with mission-critical challenges. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Ken, it’s a pleasure to chat with you today. Orbel’s story is quite interesting. Perhaps you could share how the company came to be?

Sure Roger, Orbel was founded in 1961, where we initially started as a reel-to-reel electroplating company to help support and service the ever-growing electronics industry. Orbel are now a major supplier for electronic companies seeking high performance and precision engineered components. We’re proud that Orbel has combined expertise in technology, advanced manufacturing skills and quality control housed in a modern 57,000 sq. ft to facility in Easton Pennsylvania.

Which markets do Orbel serve Ken?

While Orbel serves the broader industrial and general electronics markets, our true passion lies in precision light-gauge metal components. We specialise in meeting the demanding needs of the Hi-Reliability, Military/Aerospace, and Automotive industries. Our goal is to empower our customers with the confidence to conquer any mission-critical challenge.

What about Orbel’s capabilities; what can HITEK’s customers draw upon?

The first question Orbel always asks when approaching a project is, “How can we take a vision and turn it into a repeatable, manufacturable reality? 

AS9100 design-certified, Orbel is a light-gauge, tight-tolerance specialist backed by an engineering team with a long history of excellence. We keep design manufacturing and design engineering under one roof, from print development to full production. At Orbel, we take pride in our robust design and quality control processes for all our services, including heat treating, forming, plating, stamping, and etching. This ensures that HITEK’s customers receive precision-engineered components that consistently meet the highest standards of performance and reliability, crucial for success in demanding applications.

Where can our customers find out more about precision metal components Ken?

Capabilities – Down Packing/Decant

Decant 02 scaled

Something for us to be proud of at HITEK is having access to such a variety of capabilities such as Down Packing/Decanting that help us with effective product managing!

Down packing or decanting is the process of taking a larger quantity of substance and transferring it into smaller equally sized containers. For example, let’s consider a 3kg tin of Catalyst 15 clear delivered from Henkel to our site. Subsequently, our specially trained decanting staff carefully distributes the 3kg of resin into smaller tins, like our Catalyst 15 clear 500g tin featured on our website.

Why do we offer this Service? :

Reduces waste – we take our premium Henkel adhesives and encapsulants and resize them to more practical and efficient sizes so that less product is wasted.

Environmentally friendly – reduced waste translates to less pollution, contributing to a healthier environment.

Cost reduction – you pay for what you actually need.

Improve Safety – working with smaller quantities reduces the likelihood of a hazardous substance or adhesive causing issues.

If this service is something that catches your interest please visit our page here and enquire about what you require!

Technical Tip – Shelf Life, Pot Life and Working Life

Technical data sheet terminology can be confusing at times. We at HITEK have asked several people what they believe Shelf Life, Pot Life, Working Life and Gel Time mean, and we received mixed answers. For that reason, our Technical Manager @DavidMcAllister has put together a great technical tip document highlighting many key points that should help with any queries that you may have about these topics.
