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.

FDM vs. PolyJet – Similarities & Distinctions

Stratasys offers two different 3D printing technology options. FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) and PolyJet are distinctly different, yet they have much in common. To help you understand which 3D printing technology best meets your needs, Fred Fischer, Director of Applications & Materials and former Applications Engineer for Stratasys, will share his insights on FDM and PolyJet and what these two technologies can offer- for everything from prototyping and design, to end use parts. He will cover operations, output qualities and material offerings.

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.

PDM Solutions for Small SolidWorks Teams

Product data management (PDM) software can be overkill for small CAD teams. But without PDM you face the risks of losing track of your CAD models, overwriting models, and having users working on the wrong version of a model. So how can your team move from email and FTP to a PDM system that makes sense for SolidWorks users?
