"Braun ThermoScan® Pro 6000 Ear Thermometer" PRODUCT

Troy, Michigan

SAT Plating's continuing success plating Multi-Shot Molded Plastic Components with functional & decorative appearance finishes for a variety of customers and industries enables break-through products.

The latest example is the Braun ThermoScan® Pro 6000 Ear Thermometer recently introduced by Welch Allyn, a leading medical diagnostic device company that is now part of Hill-Rom.

Critical to the successful launch of this ground-breaking electronic product is the probe tip, which is inserted into the patient's ear to more accurately measure body temperature. The probe tip is made of different plastics injection molded into one part. This part then requires selective plating on discreet locations to function as designed. These discreetly plated areas allow "the thermometer's unique PerfecTemp™ technology [to] capture accurate readings...". Click here to review the Case Study on this initiative.

Multi-Shot Molded Plastics with Selective Plating - component parts are injection molded with plateable and non-plateable plastic resins resulting in a natural masking effect. Functional and/or appearance plating is then applied to the plateable plastics.

Multi-Shot molding can support your product needs and business results by:

  • Reducing the number of parts, fasteners, and labor needed to make a complex assembly
  • Allowing for intricate designs & embedded functional capability
  • Providing an alternative to metal parts
  • Reducing component weight
  • Improving component performance
  • Simplifying design & engineering

SAT's expertise in surface preparation makes the difference - SAT's proprietary Surface Activation® gas process, working in combination with the MacDermid Macuplex chemistry system, allows SAT to create cost effective & time efficient processes. These processes ensure best-in-class metal deposits for:

  • Structural, functional and appearance finishes
  • Superior adhesion of plated finishes
  • Reliable product performance through time and variability of use

Applications for SAT Plating are wide-ranging - primarily, SAT clients include Automotive, Medical & Appliance industries.
