Since the early 2000s, Minco has been using a strategy called Engineer-to-Engineer (E2E) to increase efficiency in our customer relationships. This strategy includes cutting out the “middleman” in hopes that engineers can work more efficiently together.
Traditional etched-foil heaters require sensors to ensure the heater reaches its setpoint, and require a controller to manage the heater and maintain a fixed wattage. SmartHeat allows customers to skip this hardware because the patented polymer-based heater’s resistance is dynamic and increases with the temperature of the heater, automatically throttling power as it approaches the setpoint.
Minco has been building flex circuits for our customers for decades and we’ve encountered countless challenges along the way. We see some of these pitfalls during the design process, others involve problems with documentation, and still others are mechanical issues with the design.

Minco is an engineering firm first and foremost, and in fact our Engineering department consists of about one-sixth of our 650 employees. Because of this, we always take time to observe National Engineer’s Week (NEW), which falls on February 18-22 in 2019.
Sensor leads often live in pretty tough neighborhoods. Physically, they may have to negotiate tight corners, sharp edges, vibration, and impacts of various sorts. Electrically, they may be surrounded by all sorts of components and wiring operating at significantly higher voltages than the sensors.
In today’s competitive markets, manufacturers are always looking for ways to cut costs, slash time to market, and improve product performance. But while component buyers are price sensitive, they also look at measures like total cost of ownership, reliability, performance, and customization.
The marketing team at Minco is excited to share our latest project: The Engineer’s Corner podcast. We sat down with five experts to discuss one of our most fascinating products: SmartHeat SLT™ self-limiting heaters.
