Research and Product Development

One of the primary functions of MRA Laboratories is to provide research and development services in all aspects of air fired electronic ceramic materials – from compositions to conductive metal inks. The MRA staff is an internationally recognized electronic material team with a combined experience of more than 100 years in ceramic dielectric materials, metallization, and component manufacturing. The research group has developed over 60 patents and publications in the field of ceramic dielectric materials and multilayer ceramic chip capacitors. We continue to support R&D programs in many aspects of dielectric ceramics and proprietary wet film coating technology. The unique combination of expertise and state-of-the-art pilot production facilities makes MRA ideally suited for taking a project from the concept to the prototype to manufacturing.

MRA Strives to Continuously Develop Novel Dielectric Formulations to Remain on the Cutting Edge of the Electronics Industry.

Whether you are a user or a producer of electronic ceramic devices, the MRA team will provide in-depth evaluations and practical solutions to your problems. In particular, our research and development team can:

 

  • Develop and prepare custom ceramic dielectric formulations optimized for your applications and processes to ensure highest quality of your product.
  • Recommend and/or provide new and improved formulations and processes.
  • Develop and supply customized electrode inks.
  • Troubleshoot product or process related problems.
  • Develop and manufacture prototype multilayer actuators.
  • Evaluate your product – whether it is a raw material or a finished capacitor or sensor.
  • Perform failure analysis and recommend corrective action.
  • Recommend testing and screening criteria.
