New High Efficiency Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters

If we told you there’s a way to build piezoelectric energy harvesters that can produce more than ten-times the power output of commercial devices vibrating at the same frequency, would you believe us? It’s true! The key is to integrate stacks of polycrystalline lead zirconate-titanate Pb(Zr,Ti)03 (PZT) ceramic in design concepts that amplify your input forces, resulting in higher efficiency. And we’ll show you two ways to do that.

Parylene Solves Biocompatibility and Reliability Challenges Facing Designers

Designers and manufacturers over a broad industry spectrum often seek key competitive advantages through the use of conformal coatings to preserve or enhance one or more key properties or functions. These desired functions may be electrical and barrier protection, dry film lubricity, stabilization of delicate microstructures, biocompatibility, antimicrobial features or a combination of one or more of these properties. Advances in technology have driven many part sizes and complexities beyond the capabilities of many traditional conformal coatings.

Benefits of Low-Volume Production

Learn how to decrease your time to market as well as reducing risk and cost associated with injection molding. Although low-volume production is typically used at the beginning of the product life cycle, it can also be useful at the end of a products life. In this presentation you will not only learn about plastic injection molding but also liquid silicone rubber, metal and magnesium injection molding. Learn the ins and outs of low volume production and how it can benefit you and your product.
