Adhesive bonding can replace soldering in power modules

21 June 2017 electrically conductive

Adhesive bonding of power modules can often be an alternative to usual joining techniques. Epoxy-based adhesives can generally produce high-strength and stable connections. Whether this also applies to the high requirements in power circuits was the subject of a research project recently performed by the IMTEK Department of Microsystems Engineering and the IESY Institute of […]

Material mixing and dispensing prove key for LED production quality

27 April 2015 case study

British LED manufacturer Plessey Semiconductors have successfully made the transition from the manufacturing development phase (where manual methods of material preparation and application often suffice) to full production by employing some of our automated mixing and dispensing technologies. Carl Withers, Plessey’s Assembly Development Team Leader, explained: We develop leading edge LED technologies, based on Plessey’s […]
