Henkel Loctite has introduced a new VOC-free, no-clean liquid flux designed to reduce solder balling defects. Called Loctite Multicore MF300, this high activity flux targets tough-to-solder surfaces such as oxidized copper. Non-flammable and halide free, MF300 is a low residue flux that meets U.S. air quality legislation. This resin-free liquid flux can be used in conjunction with most commonly used surface preservative materials, and it passes stringent Bellcore electromigration and J-STD-004 surface insulation resistance tests without cleaning.

This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
