Applied Nanotech Holdings Inc. of Austin, Texas, has been selected by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency to receive $500,000 for the development of methods to mitigate tin whisker growth in electronic devices. Applied Nanotech will partner with the University of Maryland’s Center for Advance Life Cycle Engineering on the project.
Applied Nanotech released a statement indicating it will focus on optimizing its patented (pending) process for the mitigation of tin whiskers. The firm currently uses a process to remediate tin whiskers while simultaneously preventing new whiskers from growing.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
