Micro Heaters

IST AG's thick film technology has been utilized to fabricate microheaters, which provide desired thermal energy fast, reliable and efficiently. It combines long-term stability with a wide temperature range from -40°C up to 800°C. Small footprint and excellent thermal characteristics facilitate precise heating of solids, liquids, and gases.

Micro heaters are used in a variety of applications, such as medical devices, humidifiers, car side mirror de-icing/de-fogging and many more.

Each micro heater is individually customized and designed to fit each customer’s unique requirements.

Selecting your micro heater:
First, contact us and discuss your individual needs with our experts.

  • Define element dimensions,  resistance & choice of material
  • Temperature range: -40°C to +800°C (out of range requests subject to discussion)
  • Finite element simulation for ideal heat distribution and heat up times
  • Fabrication of a prototype for tests run by customer
  • Improvement of prototype towards serial production
  • Qualification of final product, including lifetime cycling @IST AG (certifications according to AECQ possible)

Product Features:
 - Rapid heat-up times 
 - Tailor made heating track design enables controlled heat distribution across device
 - Highest quality standards
 - Short development times
 - Chemically inert materials enable applications in corrosive or sensitive media
   (e.g. medical applications)
