Solving electrical connector problems
A study by Research and Markets, reported in Business Wire, has estimated that the global market for electrical connectors will reach $80.4bn by 2023, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.9%. Automobiles, avionics, watercraft, medical devices, and thousands of other applications depend on electrical connectors to carry power and communication between critical components.
Demand for plasma applications prior to conformal coating process
Due to increasing miniaturisation and packing density on assemblies Plasmatreat has recorded a higher demand for Openair-Plasma in combination with conformal coatings in electronic manufacturing. Plasma application as pre-treatment to conformal coating of assemblies and components ensures that the process window for conformal coating is widened, guaranteeing long-lasting connections and functionality.
Lead frame cleaning process prominent at productronica
For the manufacture of semiconductors, the cleaning of metal surfaces before wire bonding or injection moulding of the semiconductor housing is still an important and necessary step. Contaminated and oxidised metal surfaces can cause low wire bond strength and lead to failures due to interruption of the electrical contacts.
