Fingerstock EMI Gaskets for Shielding
When it comes to design and production in the electronics industry, EMI-RFI shielding is critical because electromagnetic and radio frequency interfaces can wreak havoc on a variety of applications. Fingerstick EMI gaskets provide electromagnetic interference shielding in multiple forms that include strips, rings and connectors designed to fit the profiles and geometries of the components in which they are installed. Organizations in multiple industries partner with United Western Enterprises for fingerstock EMI gaskets for shielding for various development projects.
How do Fingerstock EMI Gaskets Work?
In order to provide shielding within electronic devices, fingerstock EMI gaskets function by creating a conductive path on seams and various openings inside an electronic enclosure. The covering they provide blocks potential difference across the shield surface while simultaneously offering a smooth flow of current.
Historically, fingerstock EMI gaskets were primarily used in radio communication and military power supplies, but due to the surge in EMI radiation, fingerstock EMI gaskets are now commonly used in a wide variety of electronic equipment. Typically, fingerstock EMI gaskets should be used when EMI goes above 60dB.
When you call United Western Enterprises for fingerstock EMI gaskets for shielding needs within your project, our team will work with yours to ensure you get the right type of gaskets to meet your specific needs.
Extreme Design Flexibility with Fingerstock EMI Gaskets
Most organizations utilize our photochemical etching capabilities to speed up production and support parts with complex geometries. We produce fingerstock EMI gaskets with the right level of mechanical strength needed to support your application. Whether it’s repeated opening or closing, or there is a need for high attenuation performance, United Western Enterprises is in position to accommodate your specifications.
Shielding strips can be manufactured in various lengths. Photo etching enables us to create single parts or cut them to requested lengths or produce repeated results or a number of different part configurations simultaneously. Modifications can be made quickly, thanks to easy tooling processing which enables us to quickly and economically refine our tooling to meet your needs.
Fingerstock EMI Gaskets and Custom Design for Your Application
When you invest in fingerstock EMI gaskets for shielding for your application, our customizations eliminate the harsh environment of stamping and cutting. It’s possible to create EMI strips in any style that are burr-free and ready for installation. You can even order fingerstock gaskets as thin as .002” thick to occupy extremely narrow gaps, thanks to our advanced capabilities with customization. Be sure to inquire about material thickness options to meet application requirements.

Fingerstock EMI Gaskets for Shielding and Common Material Types
Projects requiring fingerstock EMI gaskets for shielding are never identical, as each one will utilize a different type of metal. In some cases, the design requires a specific type of metal for no reason other than to stay consistent with the rest of the design components, while in other cases a metal type is carefully selected to avoid galvanic action between contacting metals. When you call United Western Enterprises, we can help you select the right type of metal for your product, while taking all considerations into account. When you call our team, we can even help you choose the metal that will provide the least amount of corrosion due to galvanic action, with the appropriate protective finish.
If you are partnering with us to gain fingerstock EMI gaskets for shielding purposes for your project, then you can rest with peace of mind knowing that we have an expansive range of materials to choose from. This means we can guarantee the right material for the right design, every time, without having to go to a third-party. Some of the common materials we work with include:
- Brass (bare or plated)
- Tin plated steel
- Nickel silver
- Stainless steel
- Carbon steel
- Tin / lead solder
- Beryllium copper
We also carry other metals not mentioned above. It is important to note that each metal belongs to a specific group, and these groupings are established to ensure product quality and to fight corrosion. Regardless of your existing design, we can select the right materials to complete production that will give you a high-0end, superior product with a flawless finish.
