Abstract

These trays are useful for handling and manipulating ceramic greensheets at various stages in the manufacture of multilayer ceramic (MLC) products. These products are comprised of two or more layers of ceramic greensheet material having various printed circuit conductive patterns screened or printed on the different sheets. A set of the screened sheets is assembled, pressed, trimmed and subsequently sintered at a relatively high temperature to form a unitary tile-like structure, onto which may be mounted one or more electronic integrated circuit chips.
