Electronic assembly cleaning chemistry is pH neutral
In Booth #1011 at IPC APEX, 24th to 26th February in California, KYZEN will demonstrate its AQUANOX A4708 pH neutral electronic assembly cleaning chemistry. This product rapidly cleans under densely populated, low-gap PWB assemblies and is effective on all flux types, including no-clean and water soluble residue.
Dry-film negative photo resist suits MEMS & TSV sealing
Engineered Material Systems is pleased to introduce the DF-3020 dry-film negative photo resist for use in Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and wafer-level packaging applications (TSV sealing). This material formulation has been optimised for hot roll lamination and processing on MEMS and IC wafers.
Topological optimisation benefits of additive manufacturing
From the Greek 'topo' meaning 'place' and 'ology' meaning 'study', topological optimisation is the study of mathematically optimising material layout. When approaching a component part in this way, the end goal is to remove superfluous material in areas of low stress whilst maintaining structural integrity of the whole; the lighter and stronger the better.
3D printing materials market expected to reach $8bn by 2025
According to a report published by IDTechEx, the 3D printing materials market is expected to increase from $800m in 2013 to $8bn by 2025. 3D printing is already common in aerospace, orthopaedic, jewellery and dental sectors, and is becoming more common in education, military, architecture, medical research and automotive sectors. This is because 3D printing is no longer used just for one-off pieces and prototypes, but for final part producti...

Certification makes 3D printing 'plug & play'
Having obtained a compliance certificate from TÜV SÜD for its AM250 laser melting machine, Renishaw intends to help 3D printing evolve from being considered an emerging technology, reserved for design and testing, into a mainstream manufacturing tool.
First London 3D Publishing Conference announced
We are pleased to announce the first London 3D Publishing Conference on November 20th at IDEALondon in London’s Tech City.
PCB profiling system features at Tech Forum
KIC will showcase the affordable and easy-to-use ProBot automatic profiling system at the SMTA Intermountain (Utah) Expo & Tech Forum (Oct 23) at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT. The ProBot automatically measures the profile for each PCB and verifies whether each PCB is processed to specification in the reflow oven.
igus presents the world’s first tribo-filament for 3D printers
Plastics specialist igus has developed a new tribo-polymer filament for 3D printers, developed specifically for engineers who wish to create structurally robust prototypes or small batch components for test in real-world applications or solutions. Suitable for use with any 3D printer that has a heated nozzle, print bed and uses ABS filaments, the material is up to 50 times more resistant to wear and abrasion than products made from conventi...
