Getting Started With WideGap™ Joining

A family of WideGap™ mats have been developed and are offered as standard products. However, significant know-how must be used to successfully join with WideGap™ mats. Technical issues such as metallurgical tailoring, substrate compatibility and thermal expansion characteristics must be understood to achieve joining satisfactory results.

To assure proper application is achieved, MRi processes inquiries in the following manner:

First, a 10-30 minute teleconference is held to educate the customer on the product and determine the specifics of the customers application and determine if WideGap™ is a potential joining solution

Second, part drawings and written requirements, tooling, and environments are reviewed by MRi’s technical department.

Third, a written proposal with costs is submitted to the customer for consideration.

If special mats (not in our inventory) are required for unique applications, our team has the development experience and production facilities to fabricate different mats and joining protocols. However, a customized joining development program (which involves selection and optimization of powders and process parameters) requires up-front funding by the customer. NOTE: In certain custom mat programs, the development costs can be negotiated into the customers high volume purchase.
