Electronics

The electronics industry is a broad field that includes the design, development, and manufacture of electronic devices and components such as computers, cell phones, televisions, and other consumer electronics. The industry requires precise and reliable components to ensure that products meet high standards of performance, efficiency and safety. In addition, the industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies and products being introduced on a regular basis, requiring manufacturers to keep up with the latest trends and innovations.

Why Powders?

Metal powders are widely used in the electronics industry to produce high performance components such as electrical contacts, connectors and heat sinks. The powders are often used as coatings, fillers or additives in various manufacturing processes. For example, metal powders can be used in injection molding or sintering processes to create complex shapes and designs that are difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional manufacturing methods. In addition, metal powders can be used as conductive pastes or inks in printing processes for printed circuit board manufacturing. 


ATO metal powders are particularly suited for use in the electronics industry due to their high purity, consistent particle size and uniformity. These properties ensure that the powders produce high-quality, reliable components that meet the industry's demanding standards for performance and durability. In addition, ATO metal powders can be tailored to specific applications, ensuring that the powders meet the specific needs of the electronics industry. 


The electronics industry uses a wide range of alloys depending on the application. Some of the most commonly used alloys include copper and its alloys, such as brass and bronze, aluminum alloys, and nickel-based alloys. These alloys are selected based on their electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, strength, and corrosion resistance.

Examples of Metal powder applications
in Electronics industry

Conductive pastes

Conductive pastes for printed electronics and photovoltaic cells can be made using metal powders like silver, copper, and nickel.

Electrical contacts

High-performance electrical contacts are created using metal powders like tungsten carbide, copper tungsten, and silver tungsten and are used in switches and other electronic devices.

Thermal management

Thermal management materials are filled with metal powders like aluminum oxide and aluminum nitride to improve heat transfer in electronic devices.

Printed circuit boards

Printed circuit boards are made using metal powders like copper and silver to increase electrical conductivity and thermal management.

EMI/RFI shielding

To shield electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio-frequency interference (RFI) in electronic devices, metal powders like nickel and copper can be used in coating and plating processes.

Battery electrodes

Lithium and cobalt metal powders are frequently used to produce battery electrodes because they have a high energy density and can be used to produce batteries that perform better and last longer.
