AMETEK Electronic Components and Packaging applications in Aerospace
AMETEK Inc.’s products are used in a broad range of applications in commercial (both passenger and freight) and military aircraft. Our products include connectors, terminals and headers for sensor devices and microelectronic packages used to protect guidance and other electronics from the effects of change in atmospheric conditions. 

AMETEK Inc.s products are required on new aircraft, for service of active aircraft and for refurbishment and upgrade of previously parked aircraft. As a result, the Company’s commercial aviation customers include original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as aftermarket suppliers and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service providers.
