Nano-Technology LabCarbon Nanotube Lab
Minnovate, our research and development division, boasts a rare piece of equipment called the RESS reactor (Rapid Expansion of Supercritical Solutions). The RESS enables us to test conductive CNTs on virtually any surface. (The RESS reactor utilizes supercritical carbon dioxide as the solvent to allow for the dispersion of carbon nanotube powder into an appropriate polymer medium for spray applications.)
Minnovate is leading the market in design and manufacturing versatility.
Mechanical Test Lab
Signal Integrity Lab
Our design engineers will work with you to ensure that every signal reaches its destination in the time required, without distortion or interference from other signals, and without creating any disturbance of its own.
Our 50 years of experience means that our wires and cables have been tested in the field in every imaginable situation. We are proud to say that Minnesota Wire’s interconnect products have continually delivered under the harshest of conditions.
