Microscopic Glass Beads
The GBC Materials division of Morgan Advanced Ceramics (MAC) introduced its microscopic-sized glass beads for the electronics industry. Designed to produce hermetic seals that secure against outside elements, they are suitable for a variety of applications including miniature fuse bodies, lenses for photo transistors and glass-to-metal seals used in IC packages. The company manufactures glass tubing and rod which is then cut to size to meet users’ specifications, providing the ability to manufacture small quantities of glass tubing and rod to precise tolerances while creating a range of colored and opaque glass. Depending on the size of the piece and project, tolerances can range from +.001" to .003" on external and internal diameters.
