The boom of technology-enhanced the automotive industry just as it did the rest of our lives, but with the capacities that technology enables – in-car Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, and more – came a greater need for EMI shielding. In the automotive industry, with safety being the absolute priority, it became more important than ever that […]
The most widely-used EMI gasket fabrication technique. Compression molding is the most reliable and widely-used technique for crafting EMI shielding gaskets. While other techniques are suitable for low-volume production such as prototyping, the compression molding process is efficient, precise and durable when conducted properly – efficient being the most highly-valued characteristic, as engineers continue to […]
An Application Guide for Form-In-Place Gaskets and Robotically Dispensed Thermal Interface Gels and Compounds
Robotically dispensed form-in-place gaskets are an excellent option to consider when complex gasket geometries, limited sealing real estate, turnkey assembly, low-cost solutions or quick turns are a consideration. Likewise, robotically dispensed thermal interface gels provide advantages for varied pad size and shape installations, turn-key assembly, low-cost solutions or quick turns. However, some design considerations upfront […]
When it comes to packaging for your electronics, electrical isolation and complex cross-section patterns are often required. The solution? Form-in-Place (FIP) gaskets. Form-in-Place (FIP) gaskets are hugely important in the manufacturing industry, recognized widely as a cost-effective, functional seal for dense electronics packaging. FIP can replace wire mesh gaskets, molded-in-place or die-cut gaskets. Characteristics of […]
Too often with mechanical, electrical and other software systems, this testing is not a priority, resulting in performance failure. Read on for tips on how to navigate compliance testing for your device.
