This article from PCB007is the first part of a new series of articles on the important emerging area of solderless assembly technology.
The first article is a bit of an experiment in information dissemination. In an industry as fast paced as the electronics industry, one often finds oneself reading technology texts that are more akin to history books. Traditional texts will always have a vital roll to play in information transfer, but real-time examination of rapidly evolving technologies cannot be carried out in such a manner. This effort is PCB007’s first attempt at offering a near real-time text on an emerging technology.
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
