Line production tech, E-CELLS, introduced by Eutect
Eutect presents a line production concept – E-CELLS automation cells – which offer flexibility, dynamics and sustainability. This is chiefly due to the technology's ability to transport each product independently through the individual process stations and cells, with the ability to take over the axis and robot handling systems that are necessary in many industrial processes.
To reduce e-waste from monitors, Philips collaborates with Closing the Loop
In a pilot project to sustainably reduce monitor e-waste (electronic waste), Philips Monitors has collaborated with Closing the Loop, a global provider of green procurement services, and TCO Development. The project is one of eight pilot projects funded by the PREVENT Waste Alliance – a platform to minimise e-waste, eliminate pollutants, and maximise the reutilisation of resources.
Tektronix releases results of Global Engineer Survey 2021
Today’s T&M engineers seek longer lasting products and more technical support, according to a global survey of nearly 1,300 professional T&M engineers conducted by Tektronix. Designed to provide greater insight into the technologies, challenges, and opportunities faced by engineers, the results showed what engineers both want and need from T&M manufacturers, and the quality and attributes they demand from their instruments.
Online design simulation tool for power products
Vincotech has unveiled VINcoSIM, its new online simulation tool. The latest in a long line of Vincotech simulation environments, VINcoSIM is the first simulator to launch from a webpage. It features topology modelling and an accurate, proven loss and temperature calculation engine. Users can even define custom heatsink builds in a one-step configuration.
$51m raised to accelerate advanced battery material development
Led by Volta Energy Technologies, the new investment enables 6K to further develop strategic material production processes focused on sustainability and lower costs while setting the stage for supply chain independence and domestic production for battery materials.
High frequency resolution option for beyond 5G
Semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest has announced a high frequency resolution option for its TAS7400TS terahertz optical sampling analysis system.
Semiconductor industry – contributing to carbon reduction
The European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA) has unveiled its new brochure demonstrating the role the industry plays as a key enabler of the reduction of carbon emissions across society. Earlier this year, ESIA announced a 54% normalised emission reduction and 42% absolute emission reduction in Europe of manufacturing greenhouse gas emissions over the past decade.
Delivering the potential of graphene
Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) provides graphene in the form of dispersions of nanoplatelets that can be readily incorporated by customers into their products. It is initially concentrating on the global protective coatings and composite materials markets where the financial benefits of the performance enhancements achievable from incorporating graphene may be calculated, encouraging adoption.
Cogiscan, iTAC share shopfloor control platform at productronica
Cogiscan, a connectivity and TTC solutions provider for the electronics manufacturing industry, will be joining iTAC Software at productronica 2021.
Developing a liquid gasket process
Liquid gaskets are an established way of sealing electronic devices, ensuring they are fully protected - even at the join - from water, pressure, vibration or contaminants. They can overcome many of the assembly challenges associated with other gasket options, and the application process is easy to automate, reduces inventory requirements and eliminates tooling costs. Here Matthew Baseley, Technical Sales Executive at adhesives and dispensing equ...
