TERMINATION MACHINE

Termination is a metallization process where electrical resistors, capacitors, inductors, band pass filters, fuses, … need a connection from their internal terminals to a PCB board. These end surfaces of e.g. a ceramic stack and the inner electrodes are connected in parallel.

We mainly provide termination processes for two types of termination – dipping (end termination) and stripping (array termination)
