microelectronic packaging lids


Our exclusive sample service is beneficial for customers who require smaller production quantities for R&D projects, as well as a shorter delivery time for product feasibility studies. COVERexpress eliminates the requirement to fabricate hard tools. Instead, it uses a soft tool constructed to quickly produce complex designs or micro-sized products.


With constantly evolving technology, engineers need to keep their material supply on pace with innovation. If you need durable and reliable packaging materials quickly, Materion can produce Combo-Lid™ covers, lids, and solder preforms in a shorter lead time through our expedited COVERexpress™ service. Faster delivery can accelerate projects and decrease commercialization time to market.
