ParPHorm silicone and flurosilicone elastomeric sealing compounds provide environmental, dust, and fluid sealing of small enclosures. CHOFORM silicone-based materials meanwhile incorporate a conductive filler to combine EMI shielding with an environmental seal. The comprehensive handbook provides detailed information to help design engineers develop and implement the optimum sealing and shielding solutions. It features detailed specifications for the environmental, mechanical and shielding performance of the complete range of FIP materials. It also includes design considerations relating to gasket bead profiles and material application. Chomerics www.parker.com Hermetically solderable IR filters, windows and covers Jenoptik has released hermetically solderable infrared filters, windows and cover windows for gas sensor applications and gas analysis. Free geometries, even smaller than two millimeters, with individual optical coating can be achieved using this patented product technology. Compared to traditional filters adhered to the housing, these soldered components are firmly attached to it and guarantee a gas-tight sealing of the assembly. Depending on the customers’ recquirements and field of application, the external form, geometry and optical coating may be flexibly varied and combined. The edges of the components are metallized to prepare for soldering. Jenoptik Optical Systems www.jenoptik.com Software tool supports all types of assembly processes Aegis Software has announced a new FactoryLogix suite built from the ground-up to support all types of discrete manufacturing, from PCB assembly, to complex boxbuilds, large system integrations and even high-speed consumer goods processing. FactoryLogix manages the entire manufacturing information environment: from product launch, to material logistics, through manufacturing execution, to operations analytics and real-time dashboard systems. This holistic solution yields unprecedented product, process, and materials traceability as well as data fulfillment and visibility. The tool optimizes and ensures material flow & monitoring from the warehouse to the lines and back. It enables controlled process execution, quality, test, monitoring and routing factory-wide. The software also provides user configured reports, real time dashboards, operations dashboards, and mobile analytics. Aegis Software www.aiscorp.com Roll clad strips with adhesive Cu-Al bonds Portable battery-operated devices often require Li-ion batteries to be connected in series, with an anode consisting of copper and a cathode made of aluminium. The roll clad strips of Heraeus consist of a copper and aluminium part and can be used as a cell connector. The connection of these two metal parts with each other is done by roll cladding and subsequent tempering in such a way that the current is transmitted as losslessly as possible. Hence, an adhesive bonding (Al-Al and Cu-Cu) emerges at the particular positive and negative terminal, to yield a monolithic system. The power is transmitted from terminal to terminal via the roll clad strip. Such a cladded semi-manufactured metal strip approach can also find applications in IC packaging.
