MATERIALS:Master Bond fiberglass adhesive EP33 facilitates the reliable bonding of fiberglass to a variety of different substrates. It has been specially designed to overcome CTE mismatch complications. Curing at room temperature, it produces durable, high strength, and tough bonds between fiberglass, wood, metals, vulcanized rubbers and many plastics. The cured fiberglass adhesive composition is an excellent electrical insulator with superb dielectric performance. It maintains an impressive strength profile of 220 Kg/cm² (3100 psi) in shear even after exposure to temperatures in the 205-235C (400-450F) range. Curing can be accelerated to as short as 1 hour at 95C.
Master Bond’s fiberglass adhesive EP33 is remarkably resistant to thermal cycling, high radiation levels and chemicals, including water, oil, and most organic solvents. This unique combination of properties advocates EP33’s use in the electronic, electrical, computer, construction, metalworking, automotive and chemical industries. It is available in premixed bi-packs and cartridge/gun packaging for convenient dispensing as well as in standard pint, quart, gallon and 5 gallon containers.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
