The CACT-CAMP Pilot Plant for multilayer electro-ceramic devices is open for business.

A resource for business designing and testing new products, The Center for the Prototype Manufacturing of Nanostructured Electro-Ceramics houses equipment for the processing and testing of prototypes. The facility has already been used by Apricot and a New York state company in 2014. 

“The plant is designed for the processing of multilayer electro-ceramics such as capacitors, circuit boards, any device requiring a substrate and a metalized layer, usually a paste,” according to Tom Steere, staff engineer.

This 10,000 class clean room houses pilot plant level equipment for the processing of multilayer ceramics.  The equipment includes a tape casting machine, a green sheet cutter, a screen printer, a sheet dryer, a stacker and other equipment. 

This facility is available for companies to create and test prototypes
