Aremco's newest epoxy, made for bonding applications to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degrees Celsius), is a two-part, aluminum-nitride-filled epoxy that bonds well to high-temperature plastics such as polyimides and composites, and glass, ceramic, and high-expansion metals. It cures in 2 hours at 200F, or in 24 hours at room temperature. The cured material has a tensile shear strength of 1,375 psi, a thermal conductivity of 8.5 BTU-in/hr-ft2 - Fahrenheit, dielectric strength of 240 V/mil, and good corrosion protection. It comes in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon containers. It is geared toward bonding heat sinks and fins in heat exchangers and electrical/electronic assemblies.

Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
