As a manufacturer of polyimide tapes and films (generic version of Kapton), we are often asked whether we can make custom-made shapes and sizes to meet advanced packaging requirements. The requests come from design engineers looking to incorporate polyimide films into their designs, often to create an insulation layers between two parts.
CAPLINQ offers this service and can even supply this for fairly low volume applications. For example, the image shown is a 3mil (0.003″ or 0.075mm) polyimide film with a custom-shape with maximum outside dimensions of 19.4mm x 9.4mm.
Below is CAPLINQ’s pricing for such a request:
#1 A one-time tooling charge of USD$150
#2 Price per part is volume dependent. Lower prices are available for even higher-volumes:
a) 500 Pieces: USD $1.50 /each
b) 1000 Pieces: USD $1.10/each
c) 2000 Pieces: USD $1.00/each
