Key Factors to Consider When Determining the Best Curing Technology for your UV Assembly Process

Manufacturers are under constant pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiencies within their manufacturing processes in order to increase profitability. With recent advancements in LED technology, new possibilities open up and a growing number of manufacturers are considering switching from lamp to LED technology for their UV processes. Lamp technology still has advantages in certain applications, as there are benefits and limitations to both technologies depending on the specific application. This webinar will discuss the factors to consider when determining whether lamp or LED technology is best suited for your application and how each technology can be utilized in a well-developed UV process to ensure repeatable product assembly.

Conformal Coatings Improve Reliability for Innovative Technologies

For decades, the medical, electronics, military, automotive and aerospace industries have used conformal coatings for a variety of reasons, including to protect components from their environment, enhance lubricity, provide thermal and electrical insulation, stabilize delicate structures, and function as an interface that is biocompatible. As advances in technology demand devices and components become smaller in size, more complex in nature and face increasingly harsh environments, newer designs present challenges for many conformal coatings. Poly(para-xylylene), known as Parylene, is an ultra-thin, pinhole-free, inert, transparent conformal coating that meets these challenges. With a successful track record spanning more than 40 years, Parylene coatings have enhanced the reliability of numerous devices and components such as circuit boards, MEMS, LEDs, stents, pacemakers, electrosurgical tools, sensors, and elastomeric components, to name only a few.

Ultrasonic Stir Welding – A New Solid-State Weld Process for Better Weld Quality and Longer Tool Life

Ultrasonic Stir Welding (USW) is a solid state stir welding process, meaning that the weld work piece does not melt during the welding process. The process uses a stir rod to “stir” the plasticized abutting surfaces of two pieces of metallic alloy that forms the weld joint. Because of the independent control of USW process elements, closed-loop temperature control can be integrated into the system so that a constant weld nugget temperature can be maintained during welding.
