We are specialized in customized manufacturing of high performance divers catheters for medical OEMs, contract manufacturers. We are committed to delivering value by developing innovative, high performance solutions for your medical devices needs with our expertise to solve technical challenges. Our mission is to work together with you to achieve the key goal of improving reliability and performance of your medical product from the original concept to the market introduction. We view ourselves as an extension of your team. When the others tell you an idea can’t be manufactured, we view it as a challenge. Our team works hand in hand with you to convert your idea into a prototype. We go through development with you to arrive at a prototype design that delivers what you want with optimized manufacturability. At the next stage, the initial prototyping undergoes testing and inspection, providing data we use to move toward a more efficient design, which we translate into a next generation prototyping with a high focus on performance and better manufacturability with cost effective production.
We provide a full range of solutions to support research and development of electrophysiological catheter, diagnostic mapping, ablation, and accessory products for catheter-based treatment of cardiac arrhythmia’s solutions to support every phase of the product life cycle of catheters.

We offer end to end contract medical device manufacturing services. We are leading contract development and manufacturing organization of device such as experience developing and manufacturing complex endoscopy and catheters for medical devices systems for demanding applications.
We assist you through the entire processes with development and manufacturing of innovative medical device technologies. We are involved with the design and development of medical products with multi-phase design process to deliver the best products possible to our customers. Your flexible microcircuits need to be dense and precise and tiny in size inserted into a catheter or wrapped around any object with smallest radius less than 20μm. There are only a few companies in the world who can handle it. We are manufacturing these microcircuits feature sizes ranging from 5μm to 20μm which consist of 6 multilayers. SWISSFLEX MICROCIRCUITS is an excellent factor and ensures high quality and control of all manufacturing processes in product servicing, by offering to our customers more engineering services with product design and development options, besides the existing manufacturing. We know the expectations of your industry and we understand your needs. Contact us, we will develop an individual solution for you. If we get involved right from the start and we will supply you the final solution with highly qualified and motivated employees. We will make it much easier for you to finalize your design, your product and your project. We will design and offer you the right solution for your requirements. When you choose SWISSFLEX MICROCIRCUITS as your thin film microcircuits manufacturing partner you get more than a professional design, manufacturing and processing facility at your service, you get to take advantage of integration the latest and most advanced innovation in your ultra flexible multilayer microcircuits and devices.

CAD Design and translation
Swissflex Microcircuits AG works with customer CAD data in DXF, AutoCAD DWG, Gerber, or GDS formats. We redesign, translate and repair customer CAD designs created in the different CAD systems in order to make it usable in manufacturing.
Photomask Layout & Design
Customer supplied CAD designs are plotted into a step & repeat pattern in order to maximize substrate yield and provide the lowest cost and highest quality thin film devices.
All substrates following are available.
Photolithography is the process of using light to transfer images from a photomask to a coated thin film substrate. The key to the process is the use of a light-sensitive chemical called photoresist and a precision phototool, called a photomask. The photomask is custom tooling made from customer CAD files.
Photoresist Coat processing
Photoresist coating with enables patterning, is applied to thin film substrates via spin coating.
Polyimide Coat processing
Polyimde coating is applied to thin film substrates via spin coating. Polyimide offers the ability to build up multiple layers of circuitry.
Sputtering thin layer
Custom thin film metallization consists of sputtering metal layers with patterns made to customer specifications.
Swissflex Microcircuits AG is able to deposit a wide variety of films on many different substrate materials (Silicon, Glass, Alumina, Insulated Metal Substrates like Aluminium and Copper).
We are using 3 targets in-line sputtering systems in order to provide willing film quality and access to custom adhesion, barrier and conductive layers.
The target materials available at Swissflex Microcircuits AG include Chromium, Titanium, Copper, Gold, Platinum, Aluminum, Tungsten, Tantalum, Silver, and Chromium Nickel alloys.
Depending on the material selected needs, thin film sputtered layers can range from 25 nm for adhesion layers to 9um for conduction layers. Patterning is done to match customer specifications using wet chemical etch processes, dry etch processes, lift-off processes, liquid or dry photoresist processes, fine thin film line patterns and in circuit test measurement.
“ENIG” (Electroless Nickel, Immersion Gold) in which a Ni thickness normally 3-5μm layer of electroless nickel is given a thin gold ‘flash’ coating by immersion plating Au thickness 0,05-0,12 μm, an ion exchange process which coats the whole of the nickel surface. It means that ENIG is an electroless nickel layer capped with a thin layer of immersion gold.
ENIG is usually applied selectively on all Copper areas still free after soldermask printing (coated polyimide coverlayer or laminated yellow adhesive coverlayer).
Application of soldermask after ENIG plating processes is possible but not recommended for laminated yellow adhesive coverlayer or coated polyimide as coverlayer, because it reduces the adhesion during etching processes.
Laser microvias & Outline cut
Micro-vias are structures with laser with highly conductive, highly reliable interconnection between sub-multilayers.
