High quality materials in liquid additive manufacturing
DELO has further developed its liquid materials, creating new possibilities for liquid additive manufacturing. The high-performance materials providing different functionalities, such as transparency or flexibility can be combined in one printing process, adhere reliably, and have isotropic strength in all printing directions.
Using silicone gels to protect outdoor LED signage
LED-based lighting technology is being used for manifold and diverse applications, including illuminations outside. For outdoor signage, manufacturers may need to use potting or encapsulation materials to protect LEDs against water, moisture and other environmental factors.
Why reworkable components matter in manufacturing
The pressure to become more environmentally conscious and more sustainable in operational terms is a major consideration for modern manufacturers. Often, it forms a key element of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) model. By Chris Snowdon, Head of Account Development, P2i
Functional materials for liquid additive manufacturing
Having further developed its liquid materials, DELO has created new possibilities for liquid additive manufacturing. The high-performance materials providing different functionalities, such as transparency or flexibility can be combined in one printing process, adhere reliably, and have isotropic strength in all printing directions. They are particularly well suited for automotive and microelectronic applications.
Streamlining electrical components
Variety is the spice of life. But, as anyone who’s tried to throw a curry together without a recipe knows well, you can certainly have too much. When specifying electrical components, engineers are often presented with dizzying spreadsheets filled with technical datapoints, for hundreds of devices.
