Slot-Lok Shields

Slot-Lok Shields

As close to custom as you can get…without the cost! Slot-Lok™ Form Down Board Level Shields are designed and manufactured using modular manufacturing methods that increase shield design flexibility while reducing lead time and total product cost. Slot-Lok™ Board Level Shields achieve this by applying standardized manufacturing methods to produce what would traditionally be a custom manufactured product. The Slot-Lok™ manufacturing process has helped many companies reduce their design-to-delivery time without incurring tooling charges. If you need a cost-effective shielding solution with near limitless design flexibility, Slot-Lok™ is the option of choice.

When space is tight…we’ve got you covered.

This design variation offers all of the flexibility and benefits of the standard Slot-Lok™ series with a very compact profile. The shields are manufactured using RoHS compliant materials which exhibit exceptional solder characteristics, corrosion resistance and shielding effectiveness.
